Because I believe in the power of prayer, I’m sending this out into the big blogosphere.
My mom’s recovery from her accident suddenly took a wrong turn late last week. One of her medications became toxic in her bloodstream, and she was unable to stand or write as of last Thursday. The doctor took her off of the meds, in an attempt to detox her, and they said she would be feeling better in 24-48 hours. This was on Friday, and by Sunday afternoon, she was still asleep, and had been for almost 60 hours. Dad had her taken to the hospital, where they are using an IV to flush out her system. Last night she had a seizure, but is stable at the time being. She still isn’t talking, (partly due to the tubes that are currently down her throat) but will open her eyes when asked to do so. They’ve discussed the possibility of doing dialysis and are watching her kidneys closely, and have also discussed possibly moving her to the hospital in OKC. I’m going to our hometown tomorrow if she isn’t up here by then. It’s been very fast and frightening. Please send out massive prayers for her. Thank you!
