Latest Update on Granny

Hey all. Instead of sending out the mass emails, gonna use this forum for updates, just check in here. Another stressful night, Granny had some additional surgery to install some stints on the output of her kidneys, seems to have helped the fluid buildup problem she’s been experiencing. She’s still in pretty serious condition, non-responsive, and weak vitals. Please keep her and Grandad in your prayers. He’s got some tough decisions to be making, and he really needs some guidance. We’re hanging in there (by a thread) as well as everyone else. Thanks everyone for all the thoughts and prayers so far; it’s obviously made a difference! Let’s see what another day brings.

Talked to ICU nurse; She is doing “better”, a little improvement, is still not out of the woods. The kidney surgery didn’t fix the problem with the fluid buildup, still not enough kidney output. Her BP is still low, but not dangerously low, they are trying to wean her off vesopresin which is the medicine to control BP. To quote the nurse “We have her right where we want her for the moment”. She said don’t want to raise your hopes, but there is a glimmer of hope right now.

Until next time…..
