My grandmother has congest heart failure and she is so swelled up she has fluid seeping out around her ankles. She refuses to go to the dr or hospital and I dont know what to do. Is this serious ? she is already on water pills
Have her Baker Acted (admitted to the hopital against her will - at this point she is a danger to herself, and not thinking clearly) - she'll be mad, but she'll be alive... and that's what's important.
