jaime30024's Journal, 13 September 2013

Okay a stressor for me...my Dad called and said that they had to move my 96 y/o grandmother to Macon for observation. She is in a nursing home in Jackson and last night she got violent yelling and actually slapped some nurses and then again this morning. Totally not like her. I know that dementia can cause violent reactions. They told him that no family can see her until they finish observing. Now as you all know I am planning a stop to see her as soon as we return. So it will be a week from this Sunday. I am praying that maybe her meds are not jiving. However, I don't want her to suffer. I asked Daddy if he was okay and he said he was (my Aunt was driving her to Macon). He did start to get choked up and said that he doesn't want her to have to be here like this. I know there have been plenty of times that Grandmama told me that she has asked "the Good Lord, why am I still here. Why don't you take me home". She said, "then I have to apologize because I know He has His reasons and I have to trust that". She is such a wise woman. So I guess just please say a prayer for these sweet woman named Rosa that God will have His will...that is what she would want. Thank you all!

Hi, Jaime! Hope all turns out well with her! My thoughts and prayers [as always] are with you and your family! I surely hope it's just an adjustment that needs to be made...and I hope you get to see her! [Wish her well from all of your Fast Secret Buddies!]

Like everyone else hope it just a meds thing. Often the elderly can be dehydrated and that causes these problems, it's usually something very simply but completely terrifying for 'us'. God's will be done, as you said. Thinking of you all.
