Another Update on Mom

Here is what the doctors told us about Mom yesterday...
  • Her pneumonia has worsened.
  • She has some blood on her brain, possibly caused by another stroke.
  • Her dialysis treatments have been changed to the 24 hour continuous type,which should be easier on her body.
  • She will have a tracheotomy performed on Monday, since having the ventilator tube down your throat for a long period of time can do damage.
  • Her tube feedings continue to go well.
Thanks once again for all the encouraging comments you have been leaving here on Mom's blog. I apologize for not responding to all of them, but I want you to know they are greatly appreciated during this stressful time.

Oh, Deann, I'm so sorry you didn't get great news your mom. We do understand that you can't respond to each comment. I think you are doing extremely well to keep us informed at all. As Tattycat said, "we continue to pray and keep all of you in our thoughts." One can never know another's exact feelings, but I do understand what you are going through. My heart is breaking for all of you, but especially for your dad. A big to you, Dear.
