ANOTHER BUMP IN THE ROAD......BEGINNING 3/25/2008

 

On Tuesday night around 7:30 pm Bill found Sue lying on the couch unresponsive.  She had worked all day, and at around 2:00 she started to feel sick.  She stayed at work until around 4:00, and then headed home.  When she got home, she told Bill she didn’t feel good, needed to lie down.   So Sue lay down on the couch, turned on the fireplace and snuggled under a blanket to take a rest.  Bill took the dog for a walk, and when he returned Sue was having another one of her coughing spells. She waved her hand at Bill, a signal that she was okay.  About 15 minutes later, Bill went to ask Sue if she wanted something to eat, and found her in a fetal position on the couch, unresponsive to his voice and touch.  Bill called 911 and waited for help to arrive.  The emergency response teams arrived within 5 minutes, and began to get Sue ready to transport to the closest emergency room/hospital. They took Sue to Ridges Hospital in Burnsville.  For the next 4 hours they worked on Sue trying to figure out what was going on. The initial indicators were that she had fluid in her lung, the chest x-ray they took was substantially more cloudy than the chest x-ray they had done just two weeks ago, so there was a possibly of pneumonia and they also found out that her heart was very weak.  They did rule out the possibility of a stroke.  They placed Sue on a ventilator to enable her to breath.  They started her on antibiotics to fight infection. Her blood pressure was very low, and her heart was beating very fast.  She had a temperature of 102+.  After the preliminary exam in the emergency room, she was moved to intensive care.  She has been monitored around the clock, and her family has been there with her.

 

In the first 24 hours, she was visited by her oncologist, pulmonary specialist, cardiologist and care coordinator physician.  The oncologist feels that this episode is not related to her cancer. The pulmonary physician performed a bronchial exploratory procedure to examine and draw fluid to culture to see what the fluid around the lung is.  The cardiologist did some initial tests on her heart.

 

Today is Thursday. They still do not have any definite answers on what is going on with Sue. They are continuing their process of discovery and elimination. Sue has made some improvement in terms of her overall status. Her blood pressure is improving, her heat beats per minute is slowing down a bit, her fever is decreasing, and she is beginning to have a bit more color in her skin.  She is still on the ventilator, and is still hooked up to many different monitors, medication bags and is still unresponsive.  The plan for tomorrow is to continue to explore what is going on, but the medical team is encouraged by her progress. 

 

Please keep Sue in your prayers.  Also keep the medical staff that is working with Sue in your prayers, that they may have the insight and determination to find out how they can help Sue back to the recovery mode. We know that she is strong, and we know that she still has fight left in her, so keep praying for her strength! Also please keep Bill, Justin, Lindsey and Emily in your prayers.  This is so hard for them to see Sue like this.  In the past she has been able to prepare them for what is going to happen, and this time there was just the element of uncertainty, and quite frankly, it is overwhelming.

 

I will try to keep this updated as we know more.

Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
