Health Update: Grandma

Grandma isn’t doing well. She’s been in the hospital for about a week and she isn’t really improving. They’ve got her on a breathing machine, not a tube down her throat just a machine that provides extra oxygen and helps get the air in and out of her lungs. 

She has pneumonia. They don’t think she’ll survive it. They think it’s going to kill her. She doesn’t have the lung strength to get the crap out of her chest/lungs. There’s still hope. They’re trying to decide if they want to or can go down her nose to try to get some of the stuff out of her lungs. If they can do that she might be able to beat the pneumonia. But we will have to see. 

She had a heart attack last Friday. I don’t know what caused it. I don’t have enough information and don’t understand it very well anyway. But it sounds like it’s finally happening. 

I don’t know what I’m going to do. Internally I’m freaking out. Externally I’m trying to focus on being there for her and keeping up with school. I don’t have time to freak out. Too much to do.
