Gram Update

Just a quick update on what is going on with Gram…
Yesterday I got a phone call from Molly saying that at midnight they gotta call from the hospital saying that Grams hear rate was SUPER LOW and that she was in extream pain and that it could be the end and they should come up. Mind you the hospital is an hour and a half drive from my father. My uncle was on his way home from the hospital at that time with my fathers car so they called him and found out that he was literally right around the corner. They waited for him to get home and the 3 of them piled back into the car and headed to the hospital. When they got there her heart rate was low as they were told. By 10am they had spoke to the doctor and they were told that Grams chances of returning to where she was before she went into the hospital last week were 15%. Dad and my uncle decided to put Gram on comfort care and they set up a appointment with hospice for a evaluation. About 3:30pm yesterday I got another call saying that Gram was officially in the care of hospice. 
It breaks my heart to know that my Gram is having such a painful death. She does not deserve that. She suffered enough through her life and the last thing I want for her is to suffer at the end. I can only hope that hospice will keep her as comfortable as possible in the next few days so she can pass as peacefully as possible. I dread getting THAT phone call but I know it is coming. I cringe every time my phone has rung the past few days. My heart pounds when I see that it is either my uncle, my father or one of my cousins. This whole situation just blows! 
  Hugs, Nikki

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    I hate to hear that about your Gram. I can only imagine the pain of having to see her suffer. Thinking about you.

    I am so sorry. It is so hard to see the ones we love in pain. It’s awful going through this, and I am praying for you, your family and grandma.
