Jamie posting again. Just wanted to let y'all know that my mom has not had her permanent pacemaker put in yet. She has developed pneumonia, her white blood cells(the ones that fight infection) have been very high. She is on 3 different antibiotics, still on the vent(machine that breathes for her) and still has the temporary pacer wire. She has also had to have several blood transfusions as her platlets and red blood cells were too low.
They hope to be able to do the permanent pacemaker tomorrow, but that has been the case all week. I'm trying to stay positive. Once again, thanks for all of your good thoughts. She stays deeply sedated most of the time, but has roused and been responsive several times. She has even attempted to communicate by writing to us(since you can't talk on a vent). She wrote out "I don't think I'll survive this", and we all told her yes she would and she has to fight. She is getting tired. I really hope that the surgery can be done tomorrow. So that's my prayer tonight. And that she can get off the vent.
Sunny & Scooter seem to know something is going on. They seem concerned for me. What would we do without our dogs? My 2 sisters from CA are still here. My daughter has been here every night until tonight, she had to go home this evening. She'll be back tomorrow though.
That's about it. One of these days soon, I am hoping things will look up and we can visit our wonderful DWB friends. Sunny & Scooter hope so too!
God Bless all of you for the wonderful support. I really appreciate it very much.
Hugs to you all.
Jamie and the kids
