Familiy Care Givers Now - Caring for Family

CCU

My Mom got moved to the critical care unit a few days ago.  The docs and nurses are really nice there.  We are getting straight answers to anything that we ask.  My brother came to town this weekend because we thought that my Mom was going to be having a heart procedure and he wanted to be here for that.  It turns out that she may not be strong enough for the procedure.  She's currently on a ventilator with lots of fluid still in her lungs.  There are lots of prayers going up for her.  I pray for her and I pray for me too.  I pray to be able to know what the right decisions are.  I pray to be able to hear her voice and carry out her wishes.  It's a really tough spot to be in both in the hospital bed and sitting along side of it.
