Bad news continues

So Grandma is not in good shape. She’s in a coma, and on the respirator. The stroke has affected her heart, so they are giving her blood thinners. After the tests today, the doctors are not hopeful that she will recover. It appears that there is going to be major damage from the stroke, and she may have to remain on the ventilator. There’s a DNR (do not resuscitate) order if she has a heart attack. The word that I’m getting second and third hand is not good at all. Dad’s other brother who lives out of town will get in tonight. Then it sounds like Dad and the uncles will may need to be making a decision about the respirator. It is going to be tough. If you would keep us in your prayers, I would appreciate it.
