MIL in hospital

Monday, November 19, 2012

Yesterday we had a call from the home at noon that the doctor advised them to send MIL to the emergency room. We went and got her and took her over, its just across the street and they admitted her. Within hours she had eliminatd more than 1000 ccs of fluid from her body. I think she was drowning in it, you could hear her wheezing from across the room. We think it is only a matter of time. She will have recovered from this episode but there will be another. It was only 3 weeks ago yesterday that we were in the same situation at the hospital. Another day.

4:00 p.m. Just left her at the hospital, not good. Can't be much longer.

    My heart goes out to you. It is not easy to care for an elderly relative. One part of you wants to keep them around as long as possible, and the other part wants their suffering to be over and for them to go home to be with the Lord.
You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    We went through similar issues with my mom, it is so hard to control.

    Thank goodness, your MIL did seem so very poorly. With the edema under control she will feel so much more comfortable.
