OP here. Thanks for all the support and funny comments. To clear a few things up, my sister didn't post to Instagram from the hospital, she just took a selfie at home and complained about the things that aren't going well in her life. She had no idea that I didn't know about my grandpa and assumed that our mom had told me. Since my sister and I both live at home, our family tells my mom about any big family news with the assumption that she will pass it on. Right now, my mom is in a really busy period at work and I'm an American exchange student in New Zealand, so I'm sure she wasn't purposely hiding anything from me. Since I go away for college, she sometimes forgets to tell me things anyway.

Really? I for one prefer having all bad news broken to me in heavily filtered photos with little hearts and maybe "RIP" handwritten in the glowing multicolored text. You might be in the minority here, OP.
Sorry OP. I guess the best you can do is hope he's okay now. As for your sister, she's a little bit of a dumb***, but hopefully your grandpa will be out of the hospital soon. Take care OP :)
This wouldn't happen if you stayed in contact with your grandfather. I'm not saying you deserve it, but before getting upset you should take a look at the reason you didn't know.
Since I still live at home, my family often tells my mom about major family events with the expectation that she will tell me. I see my grandpa whenever I am home: I am a college student and my college is too far away for me to visit when classes are in session.
Sorry to hear that, I hope your grandfather is okay. I went through the same thing last year but it was my mum in the hospital after a heart attack. Dipshit dad didn't think of telling anyone...
I'm sorry, OP. That was inconsiderate of everyone not to tell you. Also, who the hell instagrams at a hospital? Like I'm just picturing an artsy photo of a heart monitor captioned "hanging with gramps ????"
