First, I wanted to thank everyone who has been sending their thoughts and prayers and messages of support. Second, I wanted to explain the situation a little better. I know quite a few family members and friends will see this through Facebook, and wanted to keep everyone as updated as we can.
It’s bad. Sometime yesterday, Mom had a heart attack. We didn’t know (and don’t know when) because she was asleep. Later, in the evening, we found her aspirating vomit and called the paramedics. She was rushed to the ER, where eventually they managed to stabilize her.
Today, they discovered damage to her heart, kidneys, and liver. She won’t respond to outside stimuli and toxins from her medications are building up in her kidneys and liver. She also has pneumonia from inhaling vomit and a high fever.
The ICU doctors keep stressing that things can change rapidly and she might make a full recovery. A this point, we don’t know what’s going to happen and will just have to wait and then wait some more.
If you can keep praying and sending positive thoughts her way, I’d very much appreciate it, and thank you very much for your concern.
For now, we’re going to try and get some rest because between us we got six hours of sleep last night.
