Things are not looking good for my Grandmother

We had the neurologist come in later today and gave us news saying that they are giving her a 10% chance to make it. If she makes it thru the night she has a better chance. The Doctor’s that have seen her have been all doom and gloom. Her heart doctor was more optimistic that the others. He is also the one that suggested a second opinion. She is talking, writing her name, she knows who everyone is, she is even moving her head to the left. Not very far, but she is still moving it, she is doing more that some patients that have had a major stroke.

Also we found out she should have been on oxygen since was admitted on Saturday and she hasn’t, and she should have been in the ICU unit also. These doctor’s have done everything back a$$ backwards. Sorry for my language. It has just been frustrating and exhausting. I am trying to stay strong for my mother and sister, but each day gets harder and harder. Today I did not even go into her room because I knew I would lose it. I am already such a tender-hearted person that if I look at you and you are crying, I will cry. I will keep you updated. Keep the prayers coming her way, they will help. I appreciate all that everyone is doing. Thank you.

  1. I am so sorry to hear your story about your grandmother..I really have a soft spot for the elderly..this too shall pass, just have faith..

    • Thank you,she is doing better today. She is one spunky lady.

    • Thank you. Things are looking better, she is showing signs of being her ornery self. Even the nurses are saying that her vitals are looking really good, and the doctor is also. We are not totally out of the woods yet, but it is a good sign. My uncle told her he was going to take her water away, because he was swabbing her mouth. She cannot swallow any food or liquids yet, and she told him ” Bull Shit.” That is so like my grandma. She is moving her arm, leg, head, and her jaw is not droopy anymore. So things are looking up.

      • Good to hear that, I am hoping she gets better and better…

      • Me too. My Mom and Niece are with her right now, while I went to the store after a few things we needed. Also we are making a bed ready, So we can make sure my Grandfather will sleep. No one can keep him calm except my Niece, every time she has gone up there to see them his face lights up. He will tell everyone that she is his girl, and he calms down.
