Day 138: So Much Better

Thank you for the well wishes and prayers for my Grandpa. He is doing much better. You all know my Grandparents’ are in their 90’s and their health is getting bad now. My grandpa has an infection on his leg and he had skin flaking off. So, my Aunt Bernie took him to the doctor’s and they ran some test and that was that. The office called her on Thursday night and told her to take him to the hospital now. So, they went over there, and my uncle stayed with my grandma and my aunt took him to the hospital. They have him on antibiotics for the infection, but what they were really worried about was the low count in his white blood cells and that is affecting his kidneys. So, they decided to keep him there.
We went there yesterday to see him and he was eating and drinking his water like he’s supposed to and his count is going up. The problem is they don’t eat right and no matter how many times we make them something to throw in the microwave, the two of them would rather eat a doughnut or those Ensure drinks and call that a meal. We were there when he was eating lunch and he ate everything. It depends on the count to his white blood cells on whether or not they’ll release him today or tomorrow.
I’m sorry I didn’t jump on later last night and post, but we were so tired from everything. Thank you for the prayers. I tell you this man has nine lives, but seriously he is doing better. We’re getting ready to head over there.
Have a great weekend!
