  1. Well, let me start out with how close I am to my grandpa. He is pretty much my best friend. He's always been there for me. He's proud of me for just, being me. I can keep going on and on and on and on.

    A while ago, he had something bad happen with his heart. Earlier, he had a heart attack.. He's been in the hospital for a while now. He has a quintuple bypass and they said he was going to be okay.

    Well, my mom just came home from the hospital. She made me go into the other room, and she told me stuff.

    My grandpa's not looking too good.

    He has a REALLY bad heart disease right now. His heart stopped. Twice. And they had to use the shock thingy to bring him back to life. There's a balloon thing in his heart right now. It's working at the moment, but the doctors said that if that balloon doesn't work, that there's nothing much more they can do. When my mom went back to my grandpa, he was pretty much "What are they tellling you?"

    He doesn't know what's going on. He doesn't know that the balloon is pretty much his only option.

    I am so scared right now. I need to talk to someone about this. I don't know.

    im sorry to hear that amanda, but if with the balloon thing you mean angioplastic surgery, then there is a good chance that it goes well its a relatively safe surgery and helps out alot so there is hope
