I rarely speak to my uncle. My dad has been dead going on 11 yrs and my uncle's voice sounds eerily similar and I can't talk to him without ending in tears. Well, yesterday my cousin facebooks me saying her dad wants me to call him.
My grandma is in the hospital. They found her unconscious in her apartment on the floor with her futon tipped over her. They don't know how long she was like that. She was bleeding some and after my uncle called his cousin to go check on her, she couldn't get through and the fire department broke down the door and they found her. She's had a blood transfusion due to the blood loss and now is in critical but stable condition. She could swing either way still. Please pray for my grandma Haydee.
My uncle lives in Texas. His flight should bring him to Jersey by 4pm EST. I live in upstate NY, but won't have money to make it out to Jersey until tomorrow afternoon after s/o gets paid. My uncle doesn't want me to go to the hospital if she is deemed to be on the mend. He wants me to take legal guardianship of grandma and care for her since I work just part-time M-F and the kids are homeschooled. He wants her here with us because he knows someone would be with her round the clock. I have an empty bedroom we can set up for her, but I still want to go out there to see her, but he's right. She is very stubborn and to see him, her niece and his aunt all ganging up on her to go either with me or her sister, will make her insist more so to go back to her own apartment.
My grandma has been released from the hospital and is now recuperating in a rehab center for the next few weeks. Between her diabetes, anemia, and previously undiagnosed ulcer that ruptured after the pain was keeping her from eating and she lost sooooo much weight, it seems that she fainted and bled from the ulcer and was unconscious for likely two or three days. She doesn't remember how she ended up at the hospital at all. The doctor no longer wants her alone. My uncles cannot relocated from PR or TX so it is up to me to relocate back to the NYC tristate area and have her move in with us. I love my grandma and she is my main connection to my dad, so it's no problem. Now it's all about requesting job transfers and packing and saving money. I have so much to do. The best part about relocating from NY to NJ is that homeschooling is sooooo much easier in Jersey than in NY. I need to think positive. Please wish us the best. This is my grandma and I 31 yrs ago
