Late Tuesday after we left they had to reintubate her and sedate her again. She was working way to hard to breathe. Her resperation rate was 40 per minute! This morning they stopped the sedation and pulled the tube again. Today though shes able to at least talk some. She is still very weak and will need physical and occupational therapy to get back to normal. It also hasn't hit her that shes been there 10 days already. She has been getting her dialysis treatments and has started therapy so things are definitely looking up. Will keep you guys posted. Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes for her!

I just read HPs posts, one after the other to my wife. It scared me all over again. Her voice was cracking and her eyes were welling up by the time I was done. When our daughter was five she got a scratch on her finger that turned into a staff infection overnight. One emergency surgery and five days in the hospital later we got to take her home. One time my son had a stomach ache for a week (he was grown and lived in an apartment). I went and got him one night and dragged him to the ER. After some dufus ER Doctor told us to go home, that he was OK after looking at an X-ray, I insisted they go the extra step and do the MRI. Yep...he had critical Appendicitis and was in surgery an hour later. Jeez! Stuff like that changes you. You realize how friggin lucky you are. Were praying hard that your girl is as lucky as we were.

Got to spend the day with her yesterday. She is looking so much better. She still has a hard time talking from all the swelling from the breathing tube. She is in good spirits and is smiling and laughing. They are waiting for a room to open on the upper floor. Getting her out of the ICU is the first step to getting her home. She is doing well with her PT so far and should be allowed to eat soon. They still have no clue what caused the problem but I'm guessing there will now be a plethora of new meds to deal with.

I can't express how grateful I am to have so much support from everyone here. Thank you all.

Jim

They finally got her a room upstairs this afternoon. The caseworker is getting things set up so that when the hospital gets around to discharging her she will go to inpatient rehab. That's supposed to be anything from 5 days to 2 weeks depending on how she does. Of course when they will discharge her to rehab is still a mystery but it's another step forward.

You guys are the best! Your prayers are greatly appreciated.

Wow Jim, so sorry to hear about your poor daughter.
I missed this thread until just now. It was a shock to read your first post but at least it appears she is improving.
It is terribly stressful having a child in hospital, my oldest son has done that to us a number of times with a collapsed lung twice and a host of other issues.
I will be thinking of you and your family and wish your daughter a full and speedy recovery.

Well another surgery today. They put in a main line access to make dialysis easier for her as they still are not happy with how her A/V fistula has developed over the last 4 or 5 years. She has lots of little veins in her arms because of all the IV lines and blood draws etc etc. The renal Dr wants them tied off so the fistula will develop the Vein Dr keeps telling them if they tie them off she WILL lose that arm. So temporary access to let it develop more. The good news is she has improved enough that they no longer think she needs inpatient rehab! So she could be coming home by the weekend if we are lucky. She will still need outpatient rehab but the hospital here can do that. Again she has beaten the odds. I thank you all for that as I know its because so many people are supporting her with prayers and good wishes. You guys are amazing and I thank you!
