One more challenge

4 Oct

It’s fairly well known that staying in a hospital is not conducive to your health. And so it is with my mom as she now has a urinary infection to deal with that requires further medication that won’t stress the kidneys. She had her sixth thoracentesis to drain fluid from around her lungs, although this time it was less volume than before. But even with the steps backwards she continues to gain ground day by day. We celebrate the little victories, like a bath today that went much better than a couple of days ago, walking a little each day, and getting more tubes disconnected. Continue to pray for her full recovery and for the doctors that are working hard to get her back up to speed.

    They are still taking fluid off her lungs. Have her kidneys “normalized”? It looks like she may have to come home in order to get well! Tell her that Don and Barbara are still praying.

    Praying for strength for you all – but especially Merrimom. Love you.
