My Mother is Back in the Hospital

My mother is in the hospital again for congestive heart failure and shortness of breath. She was hospitalized for the same thing three years ago in October, 2015.
Last time she had fluid drained from her body, which has built up again.
She recovered fine last time, and I'm sure she will this time, but could use some prayers.
Thank you.

Thanks. She is currently hooked up to a breathing machine, and will be transferred to the ICU for dialysis, as they fear her blood pressure may drop during the procedure.

Her dialysis was successful yesterday. She is going for another one tomorrow.
She is still on oxygen, and it is being decreased every day to wean her from it.
The doctors think she had a heart attack, probably some time last week, when she started having breathing issues.

She's still on a breathing IPAP. The machine has her down to breathing 35%...normal room air is 21%. The nurse said they are going down to 28% before they try to get her off of the machine.

She is a little better today than she was yesterday...she is slowly improving. It'll take some time.

Thank you for your continuing prayers.

She was taken off the IPAP and now just has the small tubes going up to her nose, so she doesn't have to wear the bulky mask.
Her heart Dr. said she will probably need to be on dialysis the rest of her life, as it was her poorly functioning kidneys that caused a fluid build up in her body that put a strain on her heart.

The doctor put her back on the IPAP machine for overnight only, to help her lungs get stronger.
She had a fever of 99 this morning, her temp was 98.6 this afternoon, and was 101 about 40 minutes ago. The doctor was going to hold off on antibiotics because her fever had gone down, but now she will probably be given some to prevent whatever infection is causing her fever.
