I believe Wee's family does things like this too.
My Pop-pop is 92, he had a pacemaker put in this morning because his heart rate was 36.
No one told me, or my mom.
Last year my aunt was dx with a terrible gi issue, and lost a ton of weight, and no one told us what was going on until I was finally like "WTF is going on with you?".
Seriously people, not only am I a grown up, but I'm a nurse, you can tell me things.
