Well what a start to the day. We thought we were in for a sleep in this morning as Josh and Teagan had a curriculum day off school. Well that was not to be!
Mum rang me this morning at 9.30 (i was awake just not out of bed...lol) to tell me that she had walked into find Rani vomiting blood. Something that we have been warned about for months but never thought it would happen. She pressed the Emergency Button on the wall and then the Nurses called a MET call. Another thing that we never wanted to hear for her room.
Poor Mum was left to deal with all the Nurses, Doctors etc, plus of course seeing her Granddaughter vomiting blood. We were on our way - but it takes 30 minutes to get to the Hospital.
When we got tot the Hospital we found Mum sitting in the Foyer of 5W with the Chaplain Keith, so we left the kids with them and went to the room. There were so many Nurses but when they saw John and I they made room so we could get to her bed. She didn't look to bad, although through tears I could see her legs kicking - so I felt a bit better.
Eventually once they had settled things down a bit she was taken to ICU. Thankfully she stopped vomiting blood at 11am and didn't have another episode for the rest of the day. She had wto blood transfusions and lots of other medication to clot her blood, but she remained pretty much stable most of the day.
We took Josh and Teagan into ICU to see Rani once they had cleaned her up and they said there good byes as did Mum and then she took them home with her.
We were happier when she grabbed for a wet face washer, knowing that she was starting to feel better. They are keeping her in ICU for the night...we would have been back up at 5W but an overnighter is staying in her room. So both John and I were happy to come home when my brother came in at 7pm tonight.
A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that has SMS'ed, left emails and comments on my Blog...it is truly appreciated that you care so much about all of us. So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
