Busting out Grandma....

Sorry I have been a way for a while it is not as if I haven't needed you all or missed you terribly, but my Grandma was sick....

She is my Legacy and one of the Strongest woman I know. No really she is a woman of steal...coming to this country...at 15 yrs. old. Living through incredible losses...worked her whole life...

Last week I got a call from my Aunt and off we were " Road Trip". By the time I got there at 6:00 am she had been shocked with 260 J. My heart raced, I couldn't believe that my Grandmother had been shocked and escaped death. Her pacemaker (AV node, SA node failing). Pretty common really I have seen it many times and I have even paced someone externally in the ER. So, my mind was racing of all the things that can go wrong I gave thoughts ICU nurses a run for their money and they totally hated me been the task master but come on this is my grandmother that we are talking about with out her I would not be. She had a pacemaker placed at the end of the week and she is now up and running with her walker... asking for homemade tortillas and carne asada ...made with "Lard" Go figure! I say give her what she wants to eat. The hardest part is when the Dr. asked my Grandmother if she wanted to be intubated if anything went wrong...My heart sank when she said No, but it is her life and now we know....

God love my family but they are the craziest bunch around. My Grandmother has her adoptive Daughter living should I say off of her...and I had to do my best not to knock her out with her loud mouth and lies of telling everyone she was in "Nursing School". I seriously almost lost it! Anywho My family decided to go in shifts to make sure my Grandmother gets better and then my Aunt is going to take her shopping and break her out of the house she is living in. We are taking over! Some people use people for money and it makes me sick. I mean a week before we came...Wink wink someone broke into the house and took all of my Grandmother's gold and my Grandfather's purple heart...WHF?

Anywho seeing her reminded me of the strong women that I come from...able to withstand trials and tribulations of the heart...
And for now she is better and my heart lays at rest for now
