My poor grandma
This is a diagram of nasal feeding with a tube. This is what they are putting in my grandma right now. She had a stroke but that was in October and she has been choking on the food and liquids she is trying to eat. Finally after 5 trips to the emergency room they admitted her and are evaluating what is going on. The Dr said that its not the stroke that is causing the problems he is running some tests but he said its about a 33% chance its ALS (lou gehrig's disease)that has no cure and she will just get worse. We are praying it is the other disease he mentioned that can be treated but he is leaning toward ALS. I know that most of the people that read my blog are of different religions but I also believe that no matter God listens to prayers. So if you wouldn't mind remembering her in your prayers I would be thankful to you.
They sedated grandma to put in the tube and that tiny tube cut off her airway so something is really wrong in her throat. They were unable to place the tube. They are weighing the options at this point. SIGH!!
HUGS to all!
