    Sunday Evening UpDate ~

    June 12, 2005 at 07:56 PM EDT

    After Sam's heroic day, she had some setbacks over the weekend.

    She was very agitated and in pain Friday night, and they had difficulty making her comfortable. The hospital's pain management team is now handling the treatment plan for this, so the pain control will be consistent.

    Unfortunately, the pseudomonas is back, and causing Sam to spike fevers; the trach will be put off until the infection is resolved. It is likely getting in through her very compromised skin, and she is being treated w/antibiotics and a topical cream, as dictated by the infectious disease dept. It's imperative that this--or any other infection--not enter Sam's bloodstream, as that would be devastating.

    Please pray extra hard for Sam, so we can get her past this.
    She was off dialysis for much of the weekend, but is now back on the constant kind (CCVH), as the intermittent kind (hemodialysis) is more intense/taxing, and they want to go easy on her until the infection is taken care of.

    In other news, I was able to hold her again Friday night--yay--
    and she has whirlpool treatment again tomorrow,
    so we'll hope that goes well again.

    She's resting comfortably right now, and
    I'm hoping for a peaceful night of rest for her.

    Thanks,
    Jessica

    Another "Swimmin" session ...

    June 13, 2005 at 12:16 PM EDT

    Well, Sam's back up from whirlpool, and she did fine.
    She was a bit "sleepier" this time, so didn't do much breathing
    on her own, but tolerated the treatment and was comfortable.

    She has a fungal infection along w/the pseudomonas,
    which is common in patients w/conditions like her.

    The plastic surgeon took a look at the skin while she was in whirlpool,
    and wasn't too bothered by what he saw;
    he plans on grafting more early next week.

    It looks like her trach might go in Wednesday;
    they feel she will have been on the meds long enough,
    and it would be safe to do.

    One possibly positive development:
    the nurse said there was a semi-decent amount of urine in her diaper.

    We'll take anything we can get.
    As always, it's day-by-day here, and
    we'll continue to hope & pray for the best.

    Thanks,
    Jessica

    *Swimmin* must be *PHUNN*!



    June 14, 2005 at 11:55 AM EDT

    Another problem-free whirlpool treatment,
    and she's back upstairs and napping away.

    The plan so far is to do the trach asap--the ENT folks had said they could maybe do it later this week, but the ICU folks want it done maybe tomorrow, so we'll see who wins that one.

    The pain meds seem to be working, so we're grateful for that.
    Other than that, no new developments,
    which is usually a good thing.
    Thanks for the continued prayers,

    Jessica

    Glad she likes her *Swimmin* sessions!!
