I got a message this morning from my aunt down in NC: "HI, I don't know if anyone told you but your grandpa is in the hospital with congestive heart failure. He's having a pacemaker put in tomorrow..."
Me: nope nobody told me. How long has he been there?
Aunt: he went in last week complaining of shortness of breath. They tried to do stents and then balloon angioplasty but he kept coding so the pacemaker should solve that.
He...kept...coding... and nobody called me, or texted me...hell smoke signals or pigeons...something...
They used to do this to me all the time when my mother was alive and in and out of the hospital
Family is stupid
At any rate, I'm trying to figure finances out to go down and see him. He's old and little and frail and I'm worried... I haven't been down to NC since before my husband died. It's been awhile. It will be good to see the family...
Even if they ARE dumb
