Mardonna - very ill
Typically I post updates in the Miscellaneous section, but lots of folks never look there anymore.
Today, she was transferred from Hillcrest Hospital South, Tulsa to Post Acute Medical Specialties hospital, also in Tulsa... the latter is a LTAC unit.
She has been very unresponsive for the last several days.
She underwent dialysis on Tuesday and it hurt her quite a bit...
the pain did not stop so the hospital gave her some morphine and somewhere around the same time, they gave her an Ativan because she was highly anxious about nearly everything.
After that, she did not eat or drink or wake for for 36 hours... they gave her some Narcan that cancels the effects of those two narcotic drugs. She woke up in 120 seconds. I was amazed at what that stuff can do.
We arrived at Post Acute at 5:30 PM, at 6:15 they said she had low blood pressure and rushed her to ICU where she is now. The called me about an hour ago and wanted verification on her 'DNR' wishes which happens to be don't resuscitate if she has a heart attack.
Cyndi and I have been doing 12 hour shifts with her since before Christmas and we are both just totally worn out. I guess the effect was showing on my face so bad that the hospital folks told me to go home and get some rest.
So, I packed everything back up in the car and went home.
What does the future hold for her? I don't know, but she is one very sick lady right now.
Please send up some prayers to pull her back into the Light of Day...
