She did it again

Grandma did it again!!!!! For the past 3 years, between Thanksgiving and New Years Grandmas health deteriorates to where the doctors say that she won't live through the night. Well, she has proved the doctors wrong... AGAIN!!!!! I hope this annual tradition does not continue next year. Grandma is going to out live us all.

Grandma was released from the hospital today to go back to the care center. She still has some pneumonia but it should clear up soon. The rest of her infections are cleared too.

Grandmas update

We just talked to Grandmas doctor and he said that she has between 2 days to 2 weeks to live. Her entire body, including her skin, is filled with infection. The infection is completely resistant to all of the medications that the hospital is giving her.

Two nights ago Grandpa and I spent 6 hours with her. She cried the entire time we were there, she never woke up but she just cried in her sleep. When she cried it made her coughing really bad. She had to be suctioned out a lot because she couldn't spit the gunk out. G-pa and I tried to comfort her but she would just cry harder if we touched her or talked. The only comfort that would work for a few moments was when I would hum (not sing) to her. We spent the entire 6 hours listening to her cry and cough with no way to comfort her. G-pa and I did a lot of crying too.
