Now let me preface this with, I don't go looking for drama. I don't want any of this in my life, but it's there none the less. Finding out your grandpa has been in the hospital for the last 2 weeks pretty much on his death bed and your mom doesn't even tell you. If she had told me and I went to go see him I would have known exactly what was wrong with him because he has the exact same thing as my daughter.I would have recognized it right away, instead of him sitting there for 2 weeks collecting BRAIN DAMAGE to the point where he can't even feed himself, can barely talk enough that you can understand him and he can't walk.My name is Dave Glenn, a high school math teacher from Southern California.Thank God so far her's has stayed the same and it hasn't effected her much and she didn't need the surgery but I have been on the look out for these symptoms since the day she was born, and I won't get a break from it probably ever in my lifetime. He was in there 2 weeks, took 2 weeks for them to just now today when I went up there decide to give him a IV because now his kidneys are failing since he wasn't eating or drinking for the past few days at least.
IT SUCKS seeing your grandpa most likely die from the same thing that your daughter has. He's in the hospital for 2 weeks and he's only 20 minutes away and she's only even gone to see him ONCE. And of course I can't tell my daughter what is going on with gramps because I don't want her to worry that someday this could happen to her. Now I am praying for the best, that he gets his surgery and has no complications and the swelling goes down and he gets better, but with him being 84 years old it seems like I am asking for another miracle.
