Respirator

Two days ago, they put the respirator make in Mom. She couldn't breath and was wearing herself out trying. She's had more blood work, x-rays and several other procedures. The last couple of days have gone backward, considerably so, rather than forward. Yesterday they put in another Arterial Line, removed 700 cc of fluid from one side of her lung. We were there about 14 hours yesterday and left last night feeling very low. The plan for today is to remove more fluid from the opposite side of her lung. They now question if she has fluid around her heart as well. It's almost visiting hours, and so I need to get ready. A brief call tells us she has improved; specifics though are not known.

Please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers. My apologies for not being able to visit, or keep very current here. I'm behind on The Bridge (perhaps I'll get to do that later). I did manage to update Traveling Suitcase, I needed a diversion. Please visit, comment, rate. I look forward to your visits.

  2. Hi Sandy,

    I'm so sorry this is going on. I know how hard it is to have a parent in hospital with the future cloudy and lots of doctors and nurses floating around. Take care of yourself. I'm thinking good thoughts for you and your family. ((hugs))

  3. Sandy, so sorry that your mom is so ill. It is emotionally draining on those trying to help but that is what we do when we love someone. Take care and I'll keep your mom in my prayers.

  7. You're in our thoughts & prayers. Hopefully your mom will be turning the corner soon & improving once they get the excess fluid off of her.

  8. So sorry to hear things are not going smoothly forward. Sometimes it takes a while, especially as we age, to recuperate. I pray she gets stronger and is able to fight this off soon.
