And again....

My grandmother has wound up in the hospital yet again. This is the 4th time in the past 12 months. Thank God for Medicare and secondary insurance.

A couple weeks ago she was sent to the emergency room because she had fallen flat on her face in the shower. They kept her overnight for tests and observation that time.

Today, she was sent to the ER because she was unresponsive. No wonder, her blood sugar level had dropped to 40 (normal is 100). But they discovered she had a MASSIVE urinary tract infection, so they've admitted her to the hospital. She's been treated for UTIs several times in the past couple years, so there's some worry that she might have some kind of antibiotic-resistant infection.
