My grandma went to ER

United States
June 6, 2016 8:16pm CST
Well , every day has been a busy day, I just haven't been able to get back here. Yesterday my aunt called to say my grandma was having a heart attack. First thing to know my grandma lives two doors down, second thing to know is my aunt will assume it is a heart attack any time she is not feeling good. I did not panic but went outside and a lot of people are gathered with the ambulance and firetruck. They want to see what happened she is 98 years old, they know of her. They took her she didn't look too good when she was leaving , she was gone for over 6 hours in the ER. Good news it turns out she had bad, bad indigestion, not a heart attack. My dad wishes when my aunt calls she doesn't panic so and does not say heart attack. She says this because the doctor told her when it is my grandmas time it will most likely be a heart attack. I think she is going to live to be past 100, I can feel it, she is a strong woman.

My dad was really worried and my aunt, my grandma, doesn't sleep much she is up all day, night, she has dementia really bad. The family is exhausted, taking care of her, no one wants her in a rest home, so she needs constant care at all times.

@CookieMonster46 Don't say that, even if she has dementia, she needs love and care from all of you and be patient to take care of your grandma. I can relate you, my Mom who is 86 years old has Alzheimer's disease but I'm the only child she has now here because all my siblings are living far away, so I'm taking care of her all the time. Love your grandma and cherish this moment while she is still with you, if she leaves you, I know, you will miss her.

@CookieMonster46 I think it is understandable when at that age an old person has dementia . Although there are some who doesn't have it , but i think most will have it at that age .

@SIMPLYD My other neighbor has it too, but not as bad, but she gets out and I see her, i take her back home. Her family has a necklace on her neck with her name and address to say if she is lost please bring her back home She lives with her grand daughter and daughter, when they fall asleep she takes off on them. some times she will know me other times not. I worry about her too.

Your aunt should stop saying that it's a heart attack. At 98 people do not die of heart attack, but of a cardiac arrest, or respiratory problems. She should be more relaxed.

On their last doctor visit, the doctor told my aunt, when my grandmother passes it would most likely be from a heart attack and will be fast, as her heart is bad. Not sure why the doctor would even say that, but this is what she told us. So anytime she is sick, she thinks a heart attack is coming.
