OMG! Grampa!

Taking a loved one to the hospital is never fun. When that loved one is elderly it’s even more painful because the prognosis is less often good.

An elderly man had a massive heart attack and the family drove him to the emergency room. After a while the ER doctor appeared wearing a long face.

“I’m afraid Grandpa is “brain-dead”, but his heart is still beating.”

“Oh, Dear God,” cried his wife, “We’ve never had a liberal in the family before!”

Sometimes the doctors have no choice to give the family the worst of news and pray that they can bear the horror and pain.
