My mother suffered a major heart attack sometime in her sleep Saturday night. She was without a pulse anywhere from 80 minutes to 2 hours, so the prognosis isn't good. They were able to finally get a pulse 40 minutes after She arrived in the ER. She has been put into a hypothermic state to preserve her organs and stop any further brain function deteriorarion. They're slowly thawing her to determine the amount of brain function (if any). Today, we will be deciding what the best possible care going forward will be. I know she did not wish to remain on life support if it was ever needed so once they've determined what her quality of life will be like after they do several scans over the next couple days we'll make a decision what to do going forward. Depending on what they tell me I will be taking her off life support by the end of this week. It's been almost 48 hours. She isn't responsive to pain so she's not on any pain killers. Her pupils are blown- not responsive. Shes twitching but that's a basic nerve response. They don't want to put her on pain medication because if she is able to wake up they dont want her to be too drugged to wake up. The prognosis is pretty bleak. Shes in full kidney failure. Shes not producing very much urine at all.
We're trying to prepare for hee cremation.
Any little bit will help.
