Which one is grammatically correct:
Grandpa didn't really live for long after that.
or
Grandpa didn't really live for long afterwards.

    Hello little_mosquito

    I think that both "afterwards" and "after that" work.

    (The part that worries me slightly is Grandpa didn't live for long.)

    For long is usually used in questions and negatives: Have you known them for long? I haven't seen her for so long that I've forgotten what she looks like.
