Hospital, Take 2

My Grandfather called 911 to take him to the hospital today. He was bleeding an awful lot (I won't say where from as it may gross you out). They took an X-ray to try and figure out what was happening, but it did not show them anything. They would like to give him another test, but can not do so until he stops bleeding. The doctor said that at this point there are three possible causes. But they can not pin point anything, or suggest a course of treatment until further testing is done. Right now he is in ICU. His condition is listed as a 2 out of 10, with 1 being the worst. Visiting hours are over and no one can see him until 11am tomorrow. He has been given 2 pints of blood so far. Thank goodness they did not give him those blood thinners when he was released from the hospital last time. If they had, he would have died from blood loss before even getting to the hospital. I am trying to keep busy and get my mind off of the situation, but I keep wandering back to it. My eyes tear up, but I refuse to let myself cry. It will do my no good and only make me even more upset, so I am fighting it. There is nothing that I can do right now but wait for the time to tick past. I will be going to the hospital tomorrow morning. I just hope that nothing bad happens, and that I will be able to see him.
