Going South....

....yep. Am going to Southern Indiana again this weekend. My Grandad is still in the hospital. And I think that maybe a visit to see him will cheer him up a bit. He's had a setback. I know that they're to be expected, but suck, they do. His heart rate was elevated and his blood pressure low after dialysis one day, and he vomited, aspirating.....again. Pneumonia....again. Intubated....again. My poor Gran and Mom are getting the runaround with being told that certain tests NEED to be run, only to be told a few days later that they don't need to be. It's been two months since this noise all started. Grandad only wants to go home. But he can't go home until he can do dialysis as an outpatient. Or he's off dialysis altogether and is only needing all the other stuff.

...Keep up with the positive thoughts for my family as they go through all this. It's been so tough and is getting extremely wearing for them.

Sometimes it does get to be such a cycle! I hope he feels better soon. Y'all have a great visit.
