i dont know why im soooo upset!!

Friday, July 18, 2008

ok so as some of you know my grandmother had a hip replacement surgery. she had it done in trinitas hospital. in the hospital they neglected to chenge her and turn her after you have hip replacement you have to be turned in the bed to prevent bed sores well that was not done and she devoloped a bed sore. this was around the time when that super incurable strain of a deadly staph infection was going around. it is called MRSA a 12 year old boy died from it. anyway she was infected with MRSA. ok so they scrapped the infection for whatever reason. it became a stage 4 wound which is the worst stage there is. it was so deep that the bone was able to be seen. all the skin around it was dead and black. ok so after that she went to a nursing home 9 a different one then now) there she was being given physical therapy well her legs started giving out from under her. the infection spread to her blood stream. she was taken to princton medical center you know the one house works at ( a little comic relief for myself) there she was put into the ccu the critical care unit. then the icu. amazingly she made it out of the icu alive but barely. while there she could not eat at all. she had a feeding tube put in. this was what saved her life. she is now off of the feeding tube. which is very good she did lose 30 pounds and almost died. ok so after all of this her bone has been found to be infected. today she was at the orthapetic doctor and her blood pressure dropped so low she passed out she has been taken to jfk hospital. i am just upset for her because she has been through so much and it is just terrible to see her feel ill again......

    Two people from our church were healed from the MRSA. I pray your grandma will be too. May the God of heaven and earth bless and keep her. emoticon
