Thank you for those of you who have been sending positive energy and prayers for my grandma.. Since I wrote about it here she has been through her second round of chemotherapy, and most of her hair is gone. However, on Friday – things changed a little bit. That morning she was home with my granddad, and her turned around to her getting up off of the floor. She had blacked out. She insisted she was fine, and he went about his day volunteering at the Senior Center – then came home, she was up and about and decided they needed to go to Costco. After insisting she was up for it – they headed over there. After getting their shopping done while checking out, my granddad went to get them a couple of hotdogs, turns around and where my grandma once stood writing her check was a crowd of people.
She had blacked out writing the check.
The ambulance came and took her to the nearest hospital and that is where she has been since Friday. Her white blood cell count was at nearly zero, and her blood pressure was extremely low. After having her on the fifth floor of the hospital where everyone must wear masks due to low immune systems – on Monday she was moved to the fourth floor – the cardiac floor.
This Friday she will be having a pacemaker put in.
Two parts of her heart aren’t working properly which is part of the reason she kept fainting/blacking out.
I went up yesterday, she is doing well, and taking things very well. She is up and about, and I think a little antsy to get home. She said that their dog laid at the door staring out the front window the other night when my granddad was going to bed. Poor guy misses her.
They plan for her to be going home on Saturday, which is good to hear. Her next round of chemo therapy starts next week unless they postpone it which I think is a good possibility at this point.
