Sounds like grandpa has taken a turn for the worse. My mom didn't get all the details because my aunt seemed quite frazzled with a lot of different things going on in her life right now. But it sounds like he has some sort of infection (or the one he had has gotten worse....). He had been moved into a private room and was getting a blood transfusion because his hemoglobin was low. That sounds like what they did for Jason last fall when he was in the hospital with his bad infection. It also sounds like they have inserted a permanent catheter because he just can't go on his own anymore. Not sure exactly how he is doing at this point. He could hold on for a while yet....but it just sounds like we are getting closer and closer to the end. I would appreciate your prayers, for him, for comfort and peace. As well as for my mom's sister. A good friend of hers just suddenly passed away, and his wife just had a heart attack and is in the hospital down the hall from grandpa. She is feeling pretty overwhelmed with trying to look after grandpa's bills and stuff, as well as her own and cope with this other loss.
