Two weeks ago Susan went to ER after several days of confusion. She had been week and low on energy for last couple months. Thought it was low iron and needing transfusion. She then went into extreme dehydration and I couldn’t get her to drink. Confusion, like when she was asked who president is, she would George Bush or where do you live, Mesa. And took her to ER.
After a week moved they moved her to Minot. 2 hours away bigger hospital. She has acute liver failure. Also kidneys shut down and a cyst revealed in MRI blocking her pancreas. They they are not concerned until they can get Acute Liver failure under control. They are keeping her immobile to prevent injury and internal bleeding. They’ve started steroids. Kidneys have shown improvement. She is still very in and out of consciousness and still having trouble keeping Amonia levels low. GI Doctor concerned cyst is cancerous.
Starting this after encouragement from friends and family. Wanting to know how to help and what they can do. Prayers healing energy please. Commuting back and forth 4 hours daily, missing work, recent job changes and no insurance, are making things very difficult for Gavin and I to handle alone. So we humbled ourselves and are asking and allowing for help. Stinks so close to Christmas. But looking for Christmas miracle. Thanks for all your love and support.
