Hey guys sorry I was MIA this weekend, but my grandmother is not doing well. Three weeks ago she fell and broke her hip and had surgery. She then went to a rehab place and was doing well and then Friday she was rushed to the ER.
Her kidneys were shutting down and she was too weak for dialysis. Yesterday they tried a 24 hour milder form of dialysis because her body couldn’t stay stable for regular dialysis, but they said it wasn’t looking good. Bobby and I decided to drive to Louisiana yesterday morning and go with my parents to see her in the ICU, not knowing if these are her last days.
I went in with my dad to talk to the doctor. Apparently on top of the kidney failure she has a GI bleed and a drug resistant strain of a UTI (she has ecoli in her urine). You had to put on gloves and a gown to go in and see her and since I’m pregnant we decided it was best for me to just watch through the window. She’s not coherent, not talking, not moving when asked to wiggle fingers etc. her blood pressure is super low and the long term prognosis is not good. Yesterday her body was fill of lactic acid and her body chemistry was out if whack.
She is my last living grandparent, so it’s just sad. I don’t want her to suffer but know she is in pain and ready to go. Please say a prayer for my family as we wait to see what happens next and decide on what to do. Thanks for understanding, and sorry for lack of real post today.
