Visited with my grandpa for a bit tonight and I was so relieved to see a change in him.
I don't think I really let on to how worried about him I was, but he was not well last night.
There was mention of infection in his brain causing the bleeding, he is a complicated patient with heart issues and prior strokes, so taking him off his coumadin (which they had to do because of the bleeding) presented it's own risks.
Because the coumadin is still in his system, they are kind of in a holding pattern. Unable to do a spinal tap (or "LP" for "lumbar puncture") or surgery to relieve the pressure, they are blasting him with antibiotics. Which appear to be working!
Last night, it was obvious to me that he wasn't recognizing me. He would barely nod "yes" or "no" to direct questions, looked confused, was agitated, slow to follow commands, and not answering questions appropriately.
Today, tho? While he is still FAR from himself, he is SO much better! He was talking, giving direct answers to questions, and was less agitated. Still complaining of a headache, still weak, still unable to eat or drink...but better.
And "better" is such a relief to see! Thank you for your prayers!
