Mom is Back in the Hospital

My mother was taken to the emergency room yesterday with back pain and a fever;
She coughed up blood and tissue and her blood pressure is low.
They think she has pneumonia and really needs prayers right now.
She is spending the night in the E.R.

Re: Mom is Back in the Hospital

Thanks Jon.

She is in the ICU now.
She is currently breathing on her own, is having a blood transfusion, and some other medications pumped into her.
She was thought to have a Urinary Tract Infection at first.
What I know is that she has a blood infection. The doctor thinks the catheter in her chest for her dialysis may have become infected. She has a graft in her arm now, and there had been talk of removing that catheter earlier this week.
Her blood pressure is still low, but not as low as it was overnight.

Thank you for your continuing prayers.

The catheter was removed from her chest and a culture was done to see if there was anything living in it.
She continues to be in stable condition, and will have dialysis in the ICU tomorrow.
She was more alert today than she was last night, which is a good sign.
Thank you for your continuing prayers.

Re: Mom is Back in the Hospital

Things took turn for the worse, and she had to be put on life support this morning, being unable to breathe on her own.
She apparently had another heart attack (she had her first one in 1994) this morning. Her lungs were filling with fluid because her dialysis on Wednesday had been cut short, and when they tried dialysis today, her body couldn't handle it.
Per her wishes, we took her off life support.
Surrounded by my brother and I, her sister-in-law and my cousin, and one cousin on my moms side of the family, she passed away at 2:50 pm today.

Thank you for your continuing prayers for me and my family through this difficult time.
