not a good day... in many ways

Friday, January 03, 2014

Yesterday was day 2 of my cold. I woke up feeling like hell with the rawest throat I've ever had. I took some Dayquil and I was feeling really out of it BUT I was feeling better. Im feeling better today but Im just so tired. Yesterday I never really had the chance to rest with everything that happened. My grandma started to complain about how she was feeling. She said it hurts to breathe. She says this all the time but her lungs are always fine. Then I got to thinking. Im sick, my aunts sick, and my little cousin that I was watching was also sick. Maybe grams is catching what we got. My aunt calls her dr to make an appointment but they said we should take her to the ER. We were there yesterday from 430pm to midnight. All her tests came back fine. They decided to keep her over night for observation and I believe to run a stress test since she is always out of breath from doing the littlest thing, like walking to another room.

When we were making up the dr appointment my aunt was at work so she had to leave an hour early. While on her way home I got a call from my cousin. My great aunt never showed for work and the police found her, passed away at her home. They are going to do an autopsy so we should know what happened in a couple days. She was the baby of... I wanna say 6. Im also not sure of her age, late 50s early 60s. Me and my cousins are going to try to head up to my grandparents place tomorrow to see how our grandma is doing. My mom reminded me that this was around the same time years back that we lost my great grandparents (my great aunts parents) I don't remember who went first but one passed after Christmas and the other a couple weeks later. Everyone said it was due to a broken heart. One couldn't live without the other. I hope the funeral is on a nice day because we are just having too much snow right now. I cried some yesterday but I think Im still in shock.
