View Full Version : Grandma Lost in Airport

07-22-2006, 06:08 PM
My grandma was supposed to come down from Illinois to see us. For the past year or so, shes been having memory problems and my mom thought it would be a good idea to take her to some doctors.

Anyway, her flight came in today around 6 and my mom went to pick her up. Her bags were immediatly found, but there was no sign of my grandma for another hour. My mom decided she should call her brother who also lives in Illinois to see if he knows anything. He told us that he had Delta (our choice of airliners) escort her from flight to flight and that he would give them a call to see whats going on. They told him that she made it to Atlanta, but never boarded the flight that comes here. Great escorts huh?

After awhile, they found her wandering around the Atlanta airport, and she now has to make a flight at like 10:40 when she normally falls to sleep at 8 so that she can get here by midnight.

they really can only speculate, because you cant be 100% certain of althimerzs unless you get a look at the brain. usually you can be about 99% though. also some medications dont affect people so you might want to get a doctor that knows ALOT, the doc for my grandma knew some, but my mom helped out because she works for the company that produces one of the drugs.

Claus just sounded smart; the world's gonna end. :crazy:

I couldn't help but laugh either, albeit a serious situation. Glad you got her back, and good luck with the doctor this coming week!

Wow leave it to the airlines to lose an individual, may want to let a buddy of mine know not to put his daughter on a delta flight when she goes home stateside for visits with her mom, he'd have better luck safety pinning a $20 bill to her chest than leaving her in Delta's hands :dodgy:
