I decided to start a new thread for my Mom. As of now, things are not getting better. We had a family meeting with her surgeon today. If the antibiotics don't show that Mom is getting better, she'll have surgery tomorrow. If she doesn't have surgery, she'll still be in the hospital 1 to 2 weeks to get rid of this infection.

If she has surgery, they will be removing her colin and she will have to wear a colostomy bag for 3 to 4 months. Then they will do a second surgery tp put her back together. If they do surgery, she will be in the hospital 3 to 4 weeks.

I will be st aying with my Dad until Friday. Mom has always been the one to pay all the bills, so my sister and I will be helping him with this. Also, my Dad feels totally lost right now. He and I will be giving each other moral support until I have to go back home.

My Mom's current status is that she gets fluids and meds to keep her BP up, she's getting antibiotics to try to fight off the infection, and her temp fluctuates from normal to as high as 103. Because she's in ICU, they keep a very close watch on her. At this time she does not know where she is or what has happened. Thankfully, she sleeps most of the time.

Thank you all for praying for her and the rest of her family. Please continue to pray for her and her family, as we are having a hard time dealing with this. It was supposed to be one night in the hospital and then home.

Thank you.

Our continued prayers for your mom as she goes throught this and may the doctors give her the best treatment path for her medical situation. May God also give your dad an extra blessing to give him strength to make it through this as he feels lost without your mom's presence. Prayers for you and your sister to hold the family together.

Oh, Pam . . . what can we say other than ask God to heal and comfort her. I remember your first request for prayers when you mentioned it would be a quick in and out. We just never know what lies ahead. I'm so sorry you are having to face this - and it is great that you and your sister are both there to help with your Dad. Continued prayers.

Oh dear, I have been where you are with my Mom, 50 days in ICU. And like your Dad, mine was lost, too. I pray for all of you and for the doctors and nurses who are taking care of her. Lord, grant them the wisdom to know what is best for her.

Please keep us posted on her progress.

Thank you, everyone, for your prayers. Last night the ICU nurse told my sister and I that in cases of septic shock, they usually get worse before they get better. Today they ended up intibating Mom and starting dialysis. My sister, God bless her, is doing everything she can to keep our spirits up. She keeps telling me that Mom will make it through this. As for me, until I go home, I'll be holding vigle at the hospital.

my love to you all,
Pam in Vegas
