Thanks

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and wishes.

My grandma, (Ommie) is in ICU at Meridian Park Hospital. Friday she woke up screaming at the care home she has been in since she fell and hurt her leg in August. (For those who don't know, my grandma lost her right leg to a combination cancer/surgery/ MRSA-infection nightmare 6 years ago.) She told the responding nurse she was falling. (She was laying in bed at the time) Her heart rate was 20. Ambulance to ER. Stage 3 heart block Friday. Yesterday & today its stage 1. (This is better) Friday she was in atrial fib. Today she's in normal sinus rhythm. This is better. We decided against a pacemaker as we don't feel she would make it through surgery. All we can do now is keep her comfortable. 2 hours, 2 days, 2 weeks. Unknown.
