My mom called me while I was in my doc appt. this morning and left me a message that they took my grandma to the ER and she was unresponsive. They were driving down to the hospital. Her phone is off and I don't know what is going on.
She has been in the hospital for a couple of weeks but she was supposed to be getting better. I live 2 states away and was planning on visiting her in Oct. on my son's Fall break. I have epilepsy and I don't drive so getting home is hard for me.
Well now I am hell bent on getting home like today or tomorrow. My mom is going to need me. Hubby is arguing with me over it but too bad I am going. Enough screwing around. Even if she comes out of this, I at least want to be able to say I saw her one more time in case something should happen. I haven't seen her since last Christmas.
Just wanted to vent because I am a little frustrated right about now.

Thanks guys!!! Just got off the phone with hubby. He is more understanding now. We are just 2 different people. I was raised a real family oriented person and he was not. So I think I am going to fly there after I talk to my mom in a little bit. I feel a little better now that hubs called and we aren't arguing anymore.

Just wanted to say thanks for everyones kind words the other day. Turns out I did not have to travel home. The nursing home overdosed my grandma on Vicodin!!!!! She ended up finally waking up later in the afternoon wondering what the hell happened to her. The nursing home claims they only gave her 1 pill. Yeah right, the woman almost died. So she is doing as well as can be expected right now, thanks for all of your Hugs and thoughts and prayers. It was much appreciated.
