You may need to check your source water too, let it degas for 24h with an airstone for an accurate pH, but the ammonia, nitrite, nitrate can be checked as drawn, also shake the heck out of the reagents, give them a bang on the table and shake some more...being new bottles they tend to settle and you will get inaccurate reading at first....do you have fish in this tank or are you doing a fishless cycle, if so, how are they looking?
With fish...keep doing water changes until you get 0ppm ammonia and nitrite...nitrate 5-10ppm...your pH looks fine
Also, family come first...I hope you grandmother has improved or at least stabilized......
