Imagine if... please pray

Imagine you wake up one morning and feel fine. A few hours go by and you wake up on the floor and don't know why. Well, that happened to my grandma today. She got rushed to the ER and the stupid small town drs said she was ok, just tired. She couldn't stand, when she talked it was slurred and her eye was droopy. Just tired huh? Well, my grandpa told the she needed to be a a good hospital and asked for her to be transfered so they let her. She had little to no potassium left in her body and her blood count was off (not sure if it was too high or low tho) so the new hospital started the testing and found her brain was swelling and she, more than likely, has luekimia. They have never tested her for any of this and now she doesn't know if she's going to make it. She's in the ICU and very out of it.

I couldn't imagine waking up feeling fine and then in a matter of 12 hrs be that close to death. They aren't sure of much yet but they did say it wasn't looking good.

And, to top it all off, tomorrow is my mom's birthday. What a birthday present...

Something similar happened to my grandma. Her and my grandpa went to bed, they watched the news and were getting ready to turn out the lights to go to sleep. She told my grandpa that she felt a headache coming on and asked him to get her some aspirin and water. He came back and she was gone. She had died in the short amount of time it took him to get an aspirin and a glass of water. The bad thing was she just had her annual check up that morning and was given a clean bill of health.
