Board Magic, please! Anuerysm the size of an apple...

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
My grandma is chronically sick, and had her first bypass when she was thirty five. In recent years, she goes almost every winter for a stint, bypass or some other operation. This past summer, they found an anuerysm on her Aorta. Considering her location, though, they thought it best to merely monitor it. This past week they took a look at it and decided it was bad enough now that the risks for the removal during surgery were about equal to the risks of of leaving it be. This afternoon she went in for a consultation and a sonogram type thing. She just called me and told me that it appears to be the size of a small apple now (granted my grandma is a hypochondriact and does exxagerate, however, I'm sure it is still rather large)They should be finished running tests tomorrow and then will procede to operate.

The family has gotten a bit used to her illnesses, and we joke and call them her 'yearly tune up', But they have never been this bad before. And for the first time, I'm actually worried and concerned. So, would you all please send some prayers, good vibes, and thoughts to my grandma and our family for these few days of prep work and then the surgery. Thanks.

Amber, I too have a grandma who is "unbelievable" sometimes, so I know how it feels. Lots of prayers for her, that all goes well, and its not as bad as she says. {{HUGS}} and prayers for you and your family too, during this stressful time. If you need someone to talk to, just give me a buzz, I've got broad shoulders and a listening ear.

My boyfriend's father also had a brain aneurysm, around the age of 35, and survived.

Sending lots of good vibes and board magic to you and your family!

My grandfather had three aneurysms, one on his aorta, one on a blood vessal that ran to his thigh, and I'm not sure where the other one was. He was 75 at the time. He had a full recovering, and it's been five years and he's still doing great. (I had to stop and think about how old he was. He's 80 going on 65, I swear.)

I hope your grandma is better soon. I'll be keeping you and her in my thoughts and prayers!
