November 27, 2010

Over the last two days Mom has managed to spiral downward again. They put her back on dialysis yesterday morning because of the pressure the kidneys were experiencing from the level of antibiotics. They removed the majority of the cadaver skin as it had begun to slough off, though some did take. She is also having a difficult time maintaining her blood pressure and has been given a few units of blood to counter-act the instability. The doctors are still planning to take her into surgery on Monday for evaluation.

I would like to ask everyone to continue to pray that she will overcome all of this quickly so that the antibiotics will not begin to impact her in other ways that are even more counter productive to her health. We need her to make a huge effort at this point and get over the hill so that we can all see her laugh and smile again.


  1. We will continue our prayers. My thoughts will be with her tomarrow as she goes thru surgery evaluation. I love you. If there is anything I can do please let me know. Love KK

  2. Amen and Amen,
    Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace in time of need.
    Hebrews 4:16

  3. Katrina,

    Our thoughts and prayers are with your family as always. We hope and pray that her surgery goes well Monday.
