Update on My Mom

Well..unfortunately I don't have any good news to share. My mom is still in ICU on a respirator. They tried three times this weekend to wean her off the respirator and each time she couldn't breath on her own.

She's also having some issues with her blood pressure. They did an Echo Cardiogram and Ultrasound on her heart on Saturday to rule out possible heart attach, but we haven't gotten the results back yet. Hopefully in the morning we will know how that turned out.

Your continued thoughts and prayers are great appreciated!

Thinking of you all!

Just a thought - are they telling your Mum they are trying to take her off??? When my Mum was on one (mind you it was 48 days at that stage) she would unknowingly get anxious and not be able to breathe and they would have to put her back to full..... My brother suggested they do it without saying anything and it worked - slowly but surely she was off.

Just a thought!
