heater went out

Sunday, February 24, 2013

My 79 year old grandma lives with me and its really cold out and soon will be in here.
we are snowed in. its not like can leave. im really worried. she on oxygen. im scared that the cold will affect her breathing and hurt her.

im trying to calm down and be assured that God will take care of her, but its really scary.
feel like im on verge of having a panic attack.
plus i didnt sleep until 4am and usually bed by 10pm so add tired to stress.
oh well tomorrows a new day and hopefully it will magically start working again.

    What I would do is call her doctor and ask him/her what to do to prepare for an emergency and then do that. Also, ask your grandmother. She probably also knows what works for her. Ask her to keep you posted on how she feels so that if she doesn't feel well, you call the ambulance way ahead of time. I have multiple sclerosis and asthma and have learned to plan for emergencies thus making my life easier to deal with. Take care and please let's us know how things are. emoticon Love, Chelsea

    You should be able to call your utility company and let them know you have someone living with you on O2, and that your heat is out....they maybe able to get someone out there quicker to help fix it. Make sure to say she is elderly and on oxygen, and that should move you to the top of the list, and will mark that for future reference. If she starts having trouble breathing call 911 immediately. If you have fleece blankets, use those too, and dress in layers. Also, if you like to bake and still have either power or gas....start baking....kill two birds with one stone ;)

    Sending my prayers your way but stop stressing. Stressing will not help you or change the situation. It is what it is so you just have to deal with it and do what you can do.
