Heart is happy, lungs and kidneys are in competition

23 Sep

This morning my mom was able to move to the non-rebreather mask which is much less irritating than the bi-pap. She’s fully alert and remembers all the conversations from yesterday. Unfortunately, the lungs are still struggling and are full of fluid while the kidneys need more fluid to function well. The physicians are talking about putting her back on a ventilator for a while to give her body rest and a chance to get back to equilibrium. Obviously she’s not thrilled with that idea, but just the fact that she can process it is an amazing testimony to God’s grace. I’ll update as events come up.

    Marian, have been thinking of you. The web site on Sara Lu’s letter wasn’t clear that it was “TEAMduggan” instead of just duggan.com, so I’ll pass that word that your other Scottie friends will be in touch. This latest sounds good! Keep your chins up! You are loved! Mary Clayton (Bryan DuBard)

    Marian! Didn’t know you were a fellow Scottie! I’m class of ’69.
    Continued love and prayers from all of us at Siskey YMCA!
