I hope it is something that simple. My grandmother has gotten pretty stubborn about hers. She doesn't want to be put in a nursing home, so when she falls (due to passing out), she doesn't call anyone. Or she'll call, but not tell them why she's calling (that she's in the bathroom, messed herself, and can't get up). That's her biggest problem. She falls, due to fainting, due to blood sugar, and then can't get back up... so she stays there, for hours. She's been moved to an assisted living the last couple of months, but her doctor said if it happens again, she will be forced into a fully assisted care nursing home.

I hope that in this case, it's just a simple procedure like monitoring blood sugar for awhile to see if that's the problem.

Good luck and keep us updated!
