As my grandpa was admitted to the hospital last week.
He got COVID from one of his friends (he wasn't one to stay inside), but ultimately he was committed because he was dehydrated and got some urinary tract infection, which also messes with his brain.
He was dehydrated because apparently he couldn't feel when he had to pee anymore and peed his pants, so not drinking === not peeing, which sounded about right in his head.
To make matters worse, he had a heart attack last Friday.
Got a call on Saturday that it might be his last day.
He's still alive though, so I'm going to say my goodbyes tonight in case he doesn't make it, which currently seems like the most likely option.
He's on oxygen, but he's also delirious and keeps pushing away the oxygen, so they're keeping him under the weather with sedatives.
He can't talk, but he probably registers company and knows his family is there.
The good news is that they haven't given up on him yet.
Also, this is my grandpa and he's survived four heart attacks already, bypass surgery and a cerebral infarction, so he's about the strongest person I know.
If he dies before next week I think he just didn't turn 88.
