Our Poor Granny

This is been a terrible six months for Granny. She has had about six surgeries and been in the hospital for a few blood sugar lows. Two of these happened this week. Last Thursday morning MaryLou found her passed out with a blood sugar level of 23, and again today she was found passed out with a blood sugar level of 23. Both times 911 was called and she was taken to the hospital. She has 'bounced back' amazingly from these experiences, but you wonder how much an 83 year old lady can take. She is in the hospital overnight for observation. Hopefully she will be released tomorrow. This weekend was a trial run of her staying at her house with a 24 hour care giver. I believe it went well despite the low this morning. I hope she enjoyed being home. It has been a LONG time since she has been home!

Wow, that's a lot for one little old lady. I hope she's feeling like herself again soon.
