My sister

Wednesday, February 04, 2009

I am sorry but I am too tired to reply to all emails or messages but know I am reading them all. Trying to anyway
It has been a very long day.I was at hospital for about 8 hours which is a long time for me.
Joanne now has pneumonia in both lungs and fluids building up around the lungs.They are going to work on removing fluid around lungs in the morning.She was resting well when I left at 6 tonight. There is always hope but she isn't improving any yet.
Will update tomorrow.

    Yes, take care of yourself and your sister. No need to respond. My prayer:

Dear God, hold Eleni, Joanne and their families close. Guide the medical team that they find the right combination of medicine and treatment to restore Joanne to healthy. May Eleni find rest for her weary body. Give her strength to care for her sister. God, you are the Great Healer. May Joanne feel your healing touch. In Christ's name, Amen.

Nothing new

Tuesday, February 03, 2009

My sister Joanne is about the same.They did a cat scan this afternoon and put her in a better bed.They started a stronger antibiotic so hopefully we will see an improvement tomorrow.

On a lighter note.Our daughter will be induced on Friday and we will have a new grandson.I will not be going but Bill may wait and go see baby on sat and come right back.I may or may not go with him

I am just taking it one day at a time.Hopefully I will not gain too much back.If I do I will just have to work harder to get it back off. Right now I am mainly focused on my sister.
Thanks again for all the prayers etc

    Don't worry about any weight gain at this time, you can focus on that when things are better. I hope you see an improvement in your sister with this antibiotic. Keep your strength up tho so you can help others, but take care of yourself first!!!

Congrats on newest grandchild, babies are precious.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, keep us posted.

Take care,

Kim

    Dear Friend...I am so sorry for all your sadness. My computer has been in the shop and I just got back on today. So I'm just hearing about this. I am glad that the last news was positive and will pray for your sister's recovery and for you as I know you are going through a very stressful time right now.
And I will keep your daughter in my prayers and that precious grand baby...
What is your sisters name, I think I used to hear from her on 3FC? Or is it someone else I am thinking about?
I'm doing a lot of catching up tonight, so will get off...just please know you are in my thoughts!

Update on my sister

Sunday, February 01, 2009

I wish I had some good news but not yet She seemed a little better and after I got there she slept for a long time and even ate a little container of jello. Altho she is stable she is still critical and could turn worse at any time.I am getting tired as I have spent a lot of hours sitting by her bed.I also had to tell her two kids they needed to make a decision ahead of time whether they wanted her on lift support should she take a turn for the worse.She is almost 76 and pneumonia is not good for someone her age.Her husband is not capable of making decision. It was a shock to me that she and I have never talked about this.Not for her.I have spoken to her about me as I wanted her prepared.I have been the one everyone thought wasn't going to make it.I made sure all my family knows I do not want life support so they would not hassle Bill when the time comes. I am hoping very much my sister makes it as she is more like a mother to me. And I will talk to her about it. i may have to talk to her about it tomorrow if she is lucid.
But I just don't have the time to post like I normally do.But I am reading all my friends blogs and my team threads so don't think I have forgotten anybody if I don't leave you a comment. I am still keeping my eye on you.Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes.They mean a lot. Ok I woke up awhile ago and I think I will head back to bed.

    You, your sister and the entire family are in my prayers. I know it is hard to face this with someone you love. My Mom and I went to visit my aunt today. She is down to 80 pounds. I worry about getting too fat, but I see the other side also. She is so small. We all have to trust that the best will work out. Maybe you will find her better tomorrow.

    My thoughts are with you ELENI...it is always difficult to see someone you love so dearly, sick and weak!!! She is very fortunate to have you by her side!! You take care of yourself my friend. Try to get some rest so that you have energy to support those around you and hopefully you are getting lots of support as well!!
