good thoughts please

Got a call that my grandma was vomiting blood and had bloody stool. Paramedics were on the scene. I live 2 min away and was able to ride with her. Prayers and good thoughts please. She wants to die. My grandpa passed away a year ago Jan and she hasn't wanted to live since. This baby has been her one bright spot. But I am so afraid it won't be enough. In the er with her now.

They transferred her to another hospital. Disagreed with the last hospital and say she has an internal bleed. She is on her 2nd pint of blood via transfusion. Her bp is like 116/35, and not really increasing. Plus just found out to my doc that I am now considered high risk for preterm labor. So I will be going in for u/s every other week. And on the off weeks, I will see my ob.

We will all keep our positive thoughts and prayers for grandma. I was at risk for having my baby early too. Everything was fine with baby but I have a blood disorder that was causing complications to me and my dr was afraid that it would put both our lives at risk and she would have no choice but to deliver me early. It really helped to take it week by week. Although a baby born too early can have some major complications there is so much that can be done these days for preemies and the survival rate is waaaayyy higher than it used to be. I literally just focused on getting through the week and knew that each week closer I made it the better it was for my baby. Once I made it to 34 weeks it was a huge relief. I knew it was still way to early but I also knew that she would more than likely make it without too many lifelong complications if she had been born. Then when I got to 37 weeks I knew I had made it. I did make it all the way to my due date but my dr didn't want to mess around too much and induced me the day after. Just really focus on taking it week by week.

I know med help helped me out a lot. I found it on a google search when I became high risk and 3 months after my baby has been born not only have I not broken away I became involved in the maternity ward forum as well.

I'm doing ok. Even after 2 units of blood, we can't get my gmas bp above 85/35.

( all of a sudden a theme song pops in the crazy mind of Emma....)

So no one told you life was gonna be this way ( clap clap clap clap )
Your job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A.
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, but
I'll be there for you (When the rain starts to pour)
I'll be there for you (Like I've been there before)
I'll be there for you ('Cause you're there for me too)

Haha. Love you ladies!

Getting some run around. Might end up switching hospitals if they don't pull their heads out of their butts. At this point 50/50 chance. She.has pretty much given up on living...she makes comments to my aunt how she's not going to be here in June. So it diesnt matter. But when she talks to me she says she will not go anywhere if there is a chance that I deliver early. So confused, concerned, and so stinking tired....but cant sleep.

Think positive. I know its hard to hear people speak this way and knowing they are giving up. That's when we gotta pray harder and hold on to the hope that they are loosing. My mom did they same thing. ( but she really didn't have a chance due to her addiction ).. I will continue to pray. Try to rest. You and baby need it.

I'm sorry you having to go through all this especially while pregnant. My thoughts are with you and your grandma. I know how awful it can be having to watch a loved one struggling to hang on. Remember to take care of yourself.

Thanks. We finally got some answers. Looks like we will have to continue going through this process over n over again until it kills her or she has a miracle healing in her esophagus.

Found out her heat almost went into cardiac arrest yesterday. She's more herself though.  I'm taking the day off to go to a wedding. The crummy part is its for my husbands ex gfs twin. That was back when he was 19.... But still kinda uncomfortable. Had increased contractions yester, but today at least they seem to be under control. The wedding is an hour ferry and a 40 min drive away. Will head back to the hospital after. thats todays update.

Just take it a easy as possible. Good luck. Glad your grandma is doing better.

4268628_tn?1375044776
So she should be discharged in a day or two. She did have a heart attack, but nothing to do dor it. If she goes in for any kind of surgery, she wouldnt survive it. The wedding was awkward but survived. So ready for a couple days off to relax. Family is still on town and I have a concert I am part of (just not playing right now) today so I am in charge of everything else. Thanks again for all your support. You've all been a huge part of my sanity.
