What next???

On Monday, Cindy was moved from the rehab section into ICU again at Wooster because her blood pressure was very low, her heart rate very high, sugar high. They needed to give her fluids and couldn't access a vein, so they tried a picc line...couldn't do it...finally got a central line in. She is also anemic now. They gave her fluids and two units of blood. Yesterday she was stable enough to move to a progressive care room. Last evening she looked much better, all "pinked up" from getting blood. She was finally taken off oxygen too. Yesterday they did an ultrasound and found that she has a blood clot in the leg they did surgery on. So today they are going to put a screen in. She was discouraged at this news, but was better by the time we left. Please keep praying for her that things will start to go well and she can get on the right track. . . it's time for the setbacks to stop!

My goodness, I don't blame her for getting discouraged! I'm glad you were able to visit with her and help lift her spirits.
