Hopefully she’ll pull through! When people have something to live for and have optimistic dispositions (which is sounds like your grandma has) they have better chances of recovering from this sort of thing.

Continue to visit her since it also does her good.

She hears you, even if she can’t respond. I’ve worked in healthcare for 12 years and have had many patients who were on full life support later talk about people who visited them while in ICU. It sounds like your Grandma is an amazing and strong woman. I pray she will come out of this, I’m so sorry your family is going through this.

Oh dear, I’m so sorry you and your family are going through this.  Especially your grandmother, she sounds like a tough cookie.  I have a short story to share with you.  My Aunt came in town and myself, my mom, and my other 2 Aunts and my Uncle all went out to dinner.  My one Aunt is 70 and walks with a walker but was doing just fine going any place she needed to.  She got up and went to the restroom by herself and about 5 mins later the waiter comes to our table and said my Aunt needed us.  She said that she opened the big heavy door and it came back and hit her in the leg and she heard a crack. So we called an ambulance to take her for x-rays.  We shortly went to the ER and they said she broke her leg and we figured it would just need a cast.  The next thing we know, the following morning when we call (she told my other Aunt she lives with to just go home and that’d she’d call in the morning for a pick up) she is in ICU on a ventilator…. WHAT?!  They said her breathing was bad so they sedated her and put her on a ventilator and was now in the ICU. What?!  We were just at dinner together?!?!?!? She stayed like that for a couple weeks, finally had the surgery and then went was discharged to rehab and then came home.  It was still the oddest thing to this day. Your grandma sounds like a tough cookie, she does know you are there. It’s always good to pray, it’s never to late to start.  My thoughts are with you.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your grandma! She can definitely hear you.  My sister was on life support for a month and when she woke up she said she remembered me reading to her and could hear some people when they came to visit her.

So, so sorry to hear this!  My thoughts are with you and your family.  Hopefully she’ll make a speedy recovery, her heart problems will be controlled (since they can rarely be “cured”, alas), and she’s back to her usual daily routine. ๐Ÿ™‚
