    I didnt know where to post this. ive had a very bad weekend. my granny went into the hospital friday morning at 6 am. and she is still there. so i have been at the hospital every minute that i have been awake. she went in because she couldnt breathe, come to find out the monday they had punctured her lung when they went in with a scope for testing. then by friday morning she had the flu and pnemonia. on top of all this she already has c.o.p.d and enfezema. they are giving her lots of meds and pain meds to keep her comfy. she was breathing better when i came home tonight. please say a prayer for her.


    this is for any of those who have missed me lately.

    I sure will say a prayer for her, 'bsxy'. Sounds like you're real close with her. It's hard when the matriarch of the family is suffering like that. I'm certain that your love and concern for her is comforting, as well.

    I'll have you both in my thoughts! I'm so sorry things have not been well with your gran. I remember when my great grandmother started getting really sick. It was really very terrible. I feel your pain.

    My mom has severe COPD (Emphysema), and was last hospitalized for nearly three months for an infection that ended up turning into a fungus. This disease is tough and debilitating, but with the right medical care your grandma can fight back. The puncture with the scope is a risk of the procedure, and you should make sure they keep her monitored for infection. Also, please do not let the doctors keep her O2 above 3 for too long, because too much O2 causes carbon dioxide issues. I am praying for you and your family, and if you want to chat about this further, please PM me. I know the pain you are feeling, and I applaud you for being by her side. My Mom is my rock, so I know how you feel.

    well come to find out she lied to me...she was trying to keep everyone from worrying. she had a biopsy done on her lung. they found a brown spot and wanted to check it out. everything came back fine. she told me this last night. i looked at her and said you dont lie to me. whats this? she was like i didnt want you to worry. i told her i love her and things were fine. she is breathing a lot better than she was. all the meds they have her on she is having trouble remembering what they are giving her and such. i appriciate all the prayers. they are keeping me and my family strong. i only live and work a few blocks from the hospital so i am at ease a little since im so close. ill keep everyone updated.

    I'm new here and don't really know yall or anything but I really hope your granny gets better.
    I just lost my mom recently after a long struggle so I know it's tough to go through with a loved one being sick. Anyways, I wish you and your family the best. :)

    We all know you are going through a hard time
    now
    So don't worry about the grammar we do understand.
    I didn't know Women had hernias, So we all learn.
    And we all hope She recovers soon.
