Prayers please

Ben's grandma is back in the hospital. Her confusion became worse and his aunt, the one who pops in and out, decided to take her and she was admitted. Me and Ben's cousin went down there and as soon as his aunt seen we were there she left! So we stayed with her in the ER until they had a room and made sure she was comfortable, had eaten and was sleeping before we left. She is on the same floor that I work and I'm working tonight so I'll be popping in and out checking on her. From what I can gather, the ones who don't live here are making decisions and not telling the ones who actually take care of her, that she will spend a few days on the floor then come to my end of the floor which is the rehab unit and spend 21 days there and then supposedly go home to GA with one of them. Ben's uncle is in ICU in a different hospital with pneumonia and had an irregular heartbeat. He is the uncle that lives close by to us. I know you all have had grandma in your prayers and we all so appreciate it and would love for it to continue and for Ben's uncle. This all just brings me back to 2006 when we lost 3 family members and I can see the fear in Ben's eyes.

Gretchen
I'm definitely praying for her and pray for her recovery as well as that those who are making the decisions for her will make them for her best interest and not because of their own issues.

Gretchen, Grandma and Ben's Uncle will be in my thoughts and prayers. Hope those talking about making decisions indeed are doing what is going to be best for Grandma and not for selfish reasons. So glad you and Ben are there for them. Know it's not an easy time, hang in there dear.
