Back to Cleveland...

Well, Cindy was not even at her new rehab place 24 hours. We were ready to go see her on Sunday, when a nurse called and said her blood pressure is low and keeps going lower. She was also bleeding. They ended up life flighting her back to Cleveland Clinic. Warren went up right away. She was put in the ICU and given 4 units of blood. They scoped her down her throat and also did a colonoscopy. I went this morning and she was still in ICU, but they said she'll possibly go to a room sometime today. They found an ulcer in her colon that was bleeding and they cauterized it. I HOPE this is the last thing that will go wrong and that she can soon go back to rehab! I can't believe all that has happened when all she was going to do is have a rod put in her leg and an overnight hospital stay. Now it's two weeks later...a rod, a quadruple bypass, a bleeding ulcer and a helicopter ride!

I'm so sorry! She's definitely been through a lot. I'm praying that this is the last set-back and she will be back on her feet before you know it!

It is unbelievable all that has happened to Cindy. My first thought was that one of the bypasses was leaking, who would have guessed a bleeding ulcer. It was good that Cindy was in a facility being monitored so that they recognized the low blood pressure - if she had been at home she might have gotten a lot worse before the problem was discovered. May God continue to watch out for Cindy - and you! Take care.
