Mary went into severe respiratory distress yesterday morning, Kate and our nurse, Donna worked on her at the house for about 45 minutes but just couldn't keep her heart rate and saturations up, so they called the ambulance. There was a scary ride to the ER, thinking they might have to intubate her on the way. But luckily we didn't have to intubate her and we were able to wean her off oxygen and onto her Bipap. Her right lung is completely clouded with pneumonia. We have been doing treatments every 2 hours through the night and all day long, which is a little draining on Mary and on us, but very necessary.
Mary is doing much better this morning and her spirits are good. Last night she kept saying, "can I go home, please dada please..." It was so sad.
Anyway, we are hoping to not be here too long. Please keep her in your prayers!
