Update on my sister.
Thursday, January 29, 2015
We were so excited that she was responding to us yesterday then they said her lungs are so bad she may never come off the Bpap machine. She can't breathe on her own with just oxygen and she is not interacting with us, she will respond then fall back asleep. They said we will have to put her somewhere where she can get 24 hour care, and she most likely will just sleep the rest of her life, except for when someone deliberately wakes her then she might respond with a word or two, but that is it.
It almost would have been easier if she had not responded at all. Now we know she is still here with us, but just does not have the breath or energy to even sit up or talk or eat or anything. She hasn't eaten more than 4 bites of jello and a few sips of Ensure all week. I'm afraid she will starve to death at this rate.
It is so up and down right now, I don't know what is going to happen. This is so hard.
Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts! I hope to catch up this weekend with SP:)
