Sitting, Waiting, Hoping

Joe’s grandmother has been in the hospital since last week. She went to her cardiologist on Wednesday because she has been having a-fib (irregular aortic beats). The doctor admitted her to the hospital for tests, and she’s been there ever since. On Friday, they did a cardioversion, which is shocking the heart to fix the irregular beating, and that worked.

However, her lungs have fluid in them, and even though she’s had oxygen since she was admitted, she’s still not getting enough oxygen into her lungs. This afternoon, she had a ct scan, but we probably won’t know the results of that until tomorrow. Please keep her and our family in our thoughts and prayers. Joe’s mom is really scared, and I know Joe is too. Nana is his last living grandparent. I want her to live many more years.
