    A good appetite is a good sign. I’m glad to hear she’s got an appetite and is happy to listen to music. That probably means she’s not in bad discomfort. Growing old isn’t for wimps. My mom said that yesterday when we were having a chat. She’ll be 88 this year.

    I was thinking about my grandmother (dad’s mom) this morning. She passed away 15 years ago at 91 years of age and passed her drivers license renewal test on her birthday that year. She’d be 106 this year and she’d probably have a Tesla model S with Ludicrous mode. She was very proper and strict but she was a bit of a gear head. Quite a weird mix.

    Well, she's got someone she can depend on, and that must be a great comfort. Sorry to hear what you're both going through though.

    I'm sure that scared the heck out of you. Glad you were there to get her the help she needed.

    I hope the pacemaker works for her. My dad's heart would stop for 30 seconds at a time before restarting. He never knew it until he spent several days in a telemetry unit. A pacemaker-defibrillator gave him an extra 14 years.

    lol, i just went to check on her and she said, "you gotta get rid of that crap".
    i guess i should have know that "hillbilly" meant " classic country", so i put it on a station with johnny cash, george jones, etc etc, lol.
    she happy now.

    sorry for your scare, but glad to hear she's home and doing well. A good appetite is always a good sign.

    Same thing that happened to my dad in late 2011. The 2nd time it happened they went to the pacemaker decision within hours, but from what mom said, he apparently flatlined during one episode while in the hospital.
    The pacemaker did the job and he never had any further heart issues... it was dementia that finally took him last year.

    Sounds like the same thing that happened to my mom, they gave her a pacemaker, her heart would slow down too and starve her brain.
    After the pacemaker she was fine, best wishes to your granma.

    Did you ever wonder why YOU ARE so tough?
    Take a good look at your GrandMa.

    Don't forget to tell her that we ALL say “Hello”.

    That's good news HS, and we all can use some of that these days!

    So is grandma your dad's or mom's mom? I know I got a 50-50 chance here, but based on your pop's pic in the paper the other day, I'm gonna guess she's your dad's mom! :):cool:
