Terry's in the hospital*UPDATE*5/2 HOSPICE CARE

Postby 3sweeties » Mon Apr 30, 2012 4:44 pm

This is Terry's daughter. Terry has not been doing good for a few days but today she was worse so my dad drove her to the hospital in Green Bay per doctors orders. She can't talk much, coughing, short of breath, raspy sounding and weak. They now have her in a room and are going to be giving her blood because her red count and some other things were low and also some meds for her pain. The Oncologist said she will be there a few days. Her oxygen level was 82 but with the mask it stays around 94. So as for right now they want her to just sleep and be comfortable.

Strong thoughts that the doctors can turn this around. She's shere she needs to be to get the help she needs as quickly as possible.
