The Friday continues

Sue will be so proud to hear how her family and friends have come to support her. Bill and the kids have been with her around the clock, especially after last nights incident; they all want to be there as much as they can.  Today we talked with the lead doctor from the hospital that is coordinating the care and instructions given by each of the specialists. They have determined that Sue has a fungal infection in her lung, so they have begun a broad spectrum antifungal medication while they continue to wait for the exact strain of fungus to be cultured.  Her heart function is somewhat improved.  She is still on the ventilator, and she is still heavily sedated.  They did try to lower the amount of pain medication today, but she became very agitated, so they returned back to the higher level of medication.  Her coughing is still a problem, but when sedated, it is less frequent, and can be calmed down much quicker.  The nurses are able to help her get all the mucus out of her throat, and she does not have to struggle.


Today the family was introduced to the coordinator of TLC team.  The TLC team offers counselors, clergy, social workers, pain management personnel, and many other support staff, all available to the family at any time during this process.  The staff at Ridges has been amazing; they have given Sue great care, and have also been very supportive of the family.


We are hopeful that tomorrow will be a good day and Sue will begin to respond a bit. The nurses say that even though she does not show any reaction, they are sure she can hear all tha we are saying, and what goes on.  We told her today that she really needs to recover.... it is only 3 days until the Twins home opener…you know how she loves the Minnesota Twins….she actually has tickets for that game!  Sue really had to put the family to work to get the tickets for that game…Bill tried to get them from Bachman’s, but they were sold out, so Justin went on Craig’s list to buy them for his mom….and they were no bargain, if you know what I mean!!  So if she is awake, we will at least have the game on so she can listen, and Lindsey and Emily will go to the game in her place.  Last year we went to the Twins opener in Fort Meyers, and this year we thought it would be cool to go to Seattle to see a game…if she is able, it may be a good fall trip to take….we can only hope…and pray….


Sue has always said throughout this whole journey that God has put the right people in the right places at the right time to carry her.  We have witnessed that time and time again.  She has also said that she knows people all over the world are praying for her, and she can feel that deep inside….so please keep your prayers coming.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea
shepl and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed
the shell to hher ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this iss entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
