Hey everyone! I usually don't to get to detailed in my personal life, with only tid bits of info. Today I'm gonna share something that's really on my mind.
I was planning on doing Wednesday Wish List as usual but this morning at 6:30 we got a phone call. My Great Grandma was in the hospital. I was very close to her. At the hospital we were told she was in the ICU and had a tube down her throat. That alone was upsetting because she is 90 and has signed a DNR (meaning don't try to safe her life if its her time).
Finally after hours of waiting in the waiting room we were told she has a staph infection, that she was not breathing on her own at all, and had very low blood pressure. Her daughter, who is not my aunt. told me I couldn't see her. I wasn't having that so I was allowed in. To see her I had to wear a gown and gloves.
I held her hand and told her I loved her, that it would all be okay. I have never had to say goodbye, never had the chance. I must say that was the hardest thing to do. It is now up to her daughter on when to turn off the machines keeping her alive.
Happy new year to me...
