my only living grandma is in icu right now. Apparently she had a colonoscopy about a week before thanksgiving and was released to go home. They cut out 11 polyps, but the 12th one was too big to cut out. They are doing a biopsy of it and my grandmas internist has told her that they have a plan to treat her...All the while, last friday she woke up to go the bathroom and was bleeding internally. By the time they got the bleeding stopped shed had lost half of the volume in her body, about 4 pints of blood :(. Thank god that she has never been a JW, or she mightve died right there.
I found all this out by an aunt of mine, not my mother. My aunt stated that mom is just too emotional to talk about it right now, and thats probably why she hadnt called. I am calling later on to find out whats going on.
Im sure that my mom thought about the blood pumping through her mothers veins and freaked out?
Very weird, since I called out to my moms house, little bro answered the phone and said nothing about anyone (or maybe hes just being a good jw and not telling me anything).
All this....and finals coming up in school....babys birthday in 3 weeks and christmas in 4. Im not going to say "Can anything else go on?" coz it probably will.
Keep my grandma in your thoughts and prayers....shes a wonderful, smart woman and the world will be a much crappier place if things go wrong.
