Wed morning my Grandmother Jesse went into the hospital for an aortic valve replacement. We were told that it would be a simple surgery that she is very strong. But then after she got into recovery there just seemed to be complication after complication. she coded once, and now she’s still on the ventilator, barely stable, and her lungs are filled with fluid. although she has made a slight improvement since yesterday.
i’m hopeful that she’ll pull through, although part of me is being pestimistic. medically i think she just needs time. but my grandfather larry is having a hardtime understanding everything. he’s getting old, and most of this medical stuff is new to him, not to mention that his close friend was on a ventilator/life support a few months ago and didn’t make it. plus their 64th anniversary is in 2 weeks. i hate seeing him like this, he’s all but given up hope no matter what we say to him.
i just hope that someone will help me pray for my grandmother to pull through, and for my grandfather, he’s having such a hard time and its breaking my heart. they already had to bury my father (their only child) 10 years ago, as well as many family members since and i don’t know how much more he can really handle.
