Those 3am phone calls have to stop.
Tuesday, October 25, 2016
At 3am this morning I got A call from the rehab place my sister was in saying she was having trouble breathing & called 911 & she was on her way to the hospital. She was in critical care ER when we got there. Extremely labored breathing even with a bi-pap machine. She had more fluid in her lungs & was running a fever again. They somewhat stabilized her & sent her to ICU. they ran another million dollars worth of test & haven't yet determined if she had pneumonia along with the heart failure. After a very harrowing afternoon she finally regained consciousness and was breathing better with just a nasal cannula. Her fever was down but they were still treating all three things. One of the drs said she'd be in ICU for about 2 days if all went well.
I just spoke to her nurse who said she was resting comfortably and maintaining her oxygen level just on the cannula. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
