Thing's aren't looking very good for Grandpa..

Hey everyone...

I just wanted to give you all an update on grandpa.
Last week grandpa went to the Doctor and found out he had fluid in his lungs...  and they told him the fluid was so thick that they wouldn't be able to do anything for it.
Well yesterday morning grandpa was unable to breathe, so grandma rushed him to the hospital, and he's been there since.

Well when they were in the waiting room, I guess grandpa drank some coffee, and he started choking really really bad, and they didn't even think he was going to make it through that.. Thankfully he did.

So once he got his own room, a few hours later they had a lung specialist come in to check him out. Well, it turns out that his lungs weren't the reason he couldn't breathe. It turns out that it's his heart.. :'(
So tomorrow a heart specialist is going to go in to see him, and hopefully he'll be able to do something..

Here's the worst part of the news though...
The Doctor said if they can't do anything.. then it's not looking good.. and he doesn't think grandpa will have much longer.

As you can all imagine.. I want to spend as much time as possible with him..Just incase, so we've been up at the hospital a lot lately.. So I probably won't be on for the next couple of days.. IT all just depends on how things pan out.

I'll keep you all updated.

  3. I am so sorry for what your grandpa and the whole family is going through. It is hard when one of our loved ones is ill. Try to keep good thoughts and when all you want to do is cry, think about happy memories with him. That is what got me through my grandfather's illness. He's been gone 5 years now and I still miss him greatly.
    Best wishes and thoughts for your family!

  10. I'm so sorry, I know what you're going through. I'm extremely close to my grandpa. What you're describing sounds almost exactly what my grandpa went through, but he went to doctors in Santa Barbara and now he's much better. You might want to look into different doctors. Anyway, my thought are with you and your family.
