Seven months prior to this post my grandma whom I have lived with since I was 3 (I'll be 33 on Oct 8th) was called at our home by the hospital that she needs to go to the ER A.S.A.P.! She had been sick for all of December and they told her that she needed to stay overnight, maybe two to get her numbers at a more stable level. When she told me this I think she knew that things weren't going to be the same. As-is when I was 19 she was diagnosed with emphysema. I knew if anything bad will come of this, it'll surely go for her lungs.
Here we are on Oct 3rd and she's now listed as DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) with hardly any memory left. Her lungs have been collapsing while on a ventilator (This was prior to the DNR consent from the family) and everyday is/has been a rollercoaster. I moved out of the house that I grew up in for 29+ years. And even though it was tough at times to live with grandma, (Because everyone wants to have their own first apartment) when she told me that she liked that I lived with her because it made her feel safe in her own home, I didn't have a problem being there.
I enjoyed showing her wow for some of the amazing lands, creatures and that she couldn't grasp that someone who was talking to me was a real life human being! Hehe. When I was unemployed back in 2009 I told her that I'm going to quit WoW for a bit to save the monthly fee. She made it very clear that she wants me to have that entertainment because it's a game that I truly enjoy and that she enjoys watching me play.
The whole point of this post is that this character "Lighthouse" will be leveled to 90 as a tribute to my grandma and a thank you to the WoW team for bring two people together with all of it's imagination. Also, the name Lighthouse is in reference to my grandma's love for Lighthouses. In a way, she is a lighthouse to me. When sailors were lost out at sea and they saw that tiny glimmer of a light from the lighthouse, it gave them hope and security. That's what my grandma does for me.
