You know what's weird? Living with a dead person, now hear me out. I'm not talking about a zombie in the cinematic sense.

My grandpa has dodged death multiple times, serious cases. Once he was hit on the highway while he was riding his scooter(in the breakdown lane) and he survived with a minor case of amnesia. Once he got something called aplastic anemia, his bone marrow wasn't creating new cells and he was bed-ridden. He'd been shot at multiple times while scuba diving(lobstermen are maniacs). Through all the prior crazy events he survived fully intact. The lasts one was the big one. In about 2003 he had a stroke, he couldn't get out of bed it was so bad. He was lucky this time too, sort of. He had been a heavy drinker his whole life so his brain had shrunk, that gave the blood extra room before it did any serious damage. If any healthier person had the same stroke, they would've died. My grampa didn't, he had to relearn how to walk a bit but he kept his ability to speak. What he didn't keep was his personality. At first he was still pretty cognizant, he just seemed off and we chalked it up to him healing. It was degnerative though, withing 2 or so years he was operating under the intelligence of a 5 year old. It's been hell, I never had a father growing up and we sort of adopted each other. I looked up to his surly ass and now he's gone. I can say "hi" and take him to a movie, but it's not really him. It'd be like bringing a shell to a movie. I miss my grampa, the worst thing is that he's technically still around. He's been going down in health recently and everyone is getting anxious that he'll die but I'll be just fine. I've had years to mourn him, this'll just be going through the motions. Sorry for the long read, it's just nice to get that off my chest. Thank you for your time.

All I have deduced form this is that alcohol saves lives

Actually the alcohol is also the reason he had a stroke.

My grampa's face when.
