Lissa Update

Lissa (who?) has an intestinal infarcment in her small intestine, which means a part of the small intestine has died.  She also has a blood clot by her liver.  


They are moving her to the surgical ICU and will be doing surgery to take out the dead part of the intestine and fix it up either tonight or tomorrow.  They aren't able to give any blood thinner for the clot until after the surgery.


They have had to give her anti-anxiety medicine the past few days and had to increase her oxygen again.





She has been less responsive the last few days.  She will open her eyes when they say her name but won't respond in any other way.  The nurse said that she's not following commands anymore, like squeezing their hands. 


Her stomach and intestines are not working so they had to put her feeding tube right into her vein


The picture here of Lissa is during one of our many, many Hand and Foot games at our parents-in-law's.  She always wins, and she always drinks Pepsi.  I don't think there's a correlation.

I'm praying for her too. We need a Christmas miracle here to restore her to full health in time for the new year and a new start.

I'm thinking positively on this...and I am positive once they clean out that dead are of intestine and get rid of the blood clot, she is going to recover beautifully. Prayers will continue, of course.
