Grandma Update

weather: drizzling
mood: sad

I posted yesterday about Husband Guy's Grandmother. I made it private at first.

Grandma was taken to the hospital yesterday again because her lungs had completely filled up with fluid again. They have her in the Emergency ward. The hospital is operating at full capacity and there's nowhere to put her.

Husband Guy told me not to worry about her, that they're draining the fluid again and this will hopefully buy her some more time. He updated me last night when he came home from the hospital. She can't see anymore. Even with her eyes open. She has trouble recognizing anyone. They have a breathing mask on her with the oxygen level at maximum.

What a difference a few days makes... just this last weekend, she was still eating on her own.

I've never known my own grandparents, she's the only Grandma I've ever had.

That's terrible. I feel badly for your husband's grandfather. It sounds like this is especially hard for him. However, I guess there isn't much to be done in a case where someone is coming to the end of their natural life. Still, you have my condolances, it must be very difficult for all of you.
