    Mom had some fluid taken out that was outside the lung and she feels a bit better breathing but is sore from that procedure, she still not sleeping well, she did not like to sleep aids that they tried one night. She notes her knee pain is milder and the infection seems to be receding and they might try and transfer her to a nursing home early next week, she seems to be improving slowly

    So,my mom developed a leak in her previously repaired aortic aneurysm and requires a 2nd similar surgery immediately, they attribute this leak to her sepsis and infection, she had been trending in a good direction as of yesterday but they discovered this today. Additional prayers would be appreciated.

    Mom's surgery went well, they have shunts to drain the fluid around the lungs still they are draining, she is is supposed to have the intubation gear removed today and they changed their policy to allow visitors starting today, thanks again folks.

    Good news, hey

    They decided to go in endoscopically and get the rest of the stuff around her left lung from the aneurysm bleed suctioned out, so she had another procedure yesterday, hopefully gets de-intubated today or tomorrow and then can go visit.

    Not meaning to "bust your chops", the old paramedic in me just sneaks out sometimes  :o 
    My apologies

    Prayers sent for your mom's full recovery! 
  • CHIRO1989CHIRO1989 Senior Member Posts: 13,655 Senior Member
    Mom is doing better, her mood was pretty despondent after having multiple surgeries, being sedated for 3 days in a row, and not seeing anybody for 3 weeks except for hospital staff, we were finally able to go see her this week and several of her friends stop by before we got there. Mom basically has not had any significant health problems into the last couple of years and has not been any significant medications until recently and this has been quite a change for her body in general. Her sense of humor is still  there, she told her Asian physician with a heavy accent that now he can tell his friends he has seen a white p***y :#

    Mom is getting transferred to a swing bed today supposedly if all goes well, town next door to me was the closest one, got the naso-feeding tube out and a PEG tube put in about a week ago and her mood and condition improved greatly quickly, passed the swallow test and is eating again after a couple weeks, hopefully rehab will get her back on her feet and back in her house by summer, thanks again for the continued prayers.

    Mom is getting there, eating some better, I wish they would quit the PEG tube feeding all together, she will get hungry eventually, she walked 1/2 a hallway yesterday with the walker, got sore, flipped off the OT and PT, and had to take a nap, trying to motivate her has been a bear, lots of anxiety and poor sleep for her and she is up and down all day with her mood. Still, she is improving.

    She's a a rough go of it for sure, but sounds like she's getting there! Prayers for continued improvement and getting her back home!
