I’m just writing to let you all know that I haven’t forgotten about my blog family. The last few days have been a whirlwind for our family.
Ellen’s mom, as you have seen in recent blogs, has a lot of health issues. Last Wednesday, she fell getting out of bed, broke her ankle in three places, and went to the ER. At the ER she was given morphine for pain. They gave her too much. She has since been on a ventilator in the ICU. They went ahead and did the surgery on her ankle, but the seriousness of her problem is with her inability to breath without the machine. She has an extremely small breathing tube due to a car accident over 40 years ago.
At present we are awaiting a CAT scan of her throat in order to determine if she can breath without the machine and without a permanent trachea implanted in her throat. Please pray that she can breathe on her own and won’t need this apparatus. I will try and keep you updated.
