Saturday night, my grandma, who lives alone, fell in her bathroom. This happened at 8pm. She was unable to get to a phone till 5am and then called my aunt who lives down the road.
They tried to move her to the bed but she went into convulsions and had severe vomiting. The EMT's came and took her to the hospital.
The CT scan revealed cerebral hemorrhaging in the cerebellum. This caused a stroke which affected her balance and equilibrium. She cannot walk or stand.
Yesterday, she was moved from critical care to the neurology unit. The doctors said the bleeding had stopped. My parents went there yesterday and are in the hospital with her today. She's not doing good. Her mental capacity is gone and she realizes that my dad (her son) is there but doesn't quite know him.
My sister and brother are going there tonight and I have to remain here in CO, she is WA state. I am lucky I saw her in June but its still freakin hard to stay here while they are out there. That is the part that is ending up being the toughest for me. I have things on my mind and I need to focus on class and the academy but its downright a fuckin nightmare.
She is 87 and her name is Billy.
