Today my grandma is yellow-jaundiced.
Her kidneys and liver are still in failure.
Doctors are saying there is fluid building up in her lungs. She has been off the ventilator for two days-never passing the swallow test. Still no water.
My grandma’s white blood cell count is up-signs of infection.
I hear the nurses telling me all of this. I can see how much worse it seems to be getting but I still believe she is going to leave here. We’ll wheel her to my college graduation, or maybe we can live stream it on my laptop for her to watch from the hospital bed.
Either way, she is going to be alright. She is going to get better. She is going to go home.
