Still hanging in there…

Mom pretty much stayed asleep all day and night from Friday, Oct. 26th until Friday, Nov. 2nd. Dad had not talked to her in about a week. This past Friday evening is when she really started to become more alert and stay awake longer. She was weak and groggy from the surgery. She wants real food, to go home and a shower. Bless her heart!

On Wednesday, Oct. 31st they found bleeding around her spleen. They went in to repair one spot and ended up finding and repairing three spots. This stopped all of the bleeding.

The infection that she has in her blood is not getting any better and is growing. They have changed her antibiotic to something much more “lethal” to try to get it under control. The potential problem is that it could cause harm to her kidneys. We will know more this Wednesday how the antibiotic is working and how her kidneys are handling the medicine.

We are hoping and praying for the best and we appreciate all of the support from all you bloggers!
