    So great she finally got that tube out! That has to be a huge improvement every minute of the day.

    Just got back from talking to Cardiologist. There a very small blood clot at the apex of the Left Ventricle, plus with her lungs bleeding last week she's on a RAZORS EDGE with regard to blood Thinners and A-Fib. They are giving her Heparin (low dose) for the A-FIB. Hopefully the Heparin will dissolve it. She's still really sick.

    Prayers continue daily for all of you. Glad she is able to at least be off the E-tube and able to communicate. I imagine her throat is quite sore now and will be for some days. We are all praying for her recovery.

    Heparin doesn’t resolve clots. Just makes them stable so they don’t move and then dissolve as they would naturally over time.

    That sounds like she is starting to turn around. I’ll pray for those kidneys!

    Good luck. I am a nurse and my Mother is on hospice with renal failure, diabetes and legally blind. Mom refuses to do dialysis, which is frustrating. Pray for a miracle.

    Do you have her medical directives laid out? Desire for DNR or Full Code? If you don't, discuss it with her when she is alert. Her life and yours will be different after recovery. Dialysis for 3 days a week. Restrictions on diet and fluid intake. The prospect for kidney transplant, is complicated.

    Friday update. She's going to the Step Down unit and getting an arm fistula inserted so they can remove the central lines, probably in the next couple of days. Her kidneys are still shut down. She's had a personality shift (180* out and I'm Dead, a Ghost, etc., None of which is true) since the Cardiac Event last week, and I'm not allowed in the Hospital now as her wishes take precedence over anyone else's. So I have to go thru one of my son's to find out anything. And they aren't talking to the Dr's., just the nurses, which in my opinion isn't enough.
