Sister update...prayers appriciated

For those of you who have prayed for my sister, here is an update.

The blood clot in the right lung was huge. She also had a smaller one in her left lung. The right clot has caused some of her lung tissue to die and she also has buildup of fluid between her lung and chest which is very painful. The breathing difficulty and pain should get better as she heals and the clot goes completely away.

The good news is that she is going home to my parents today after being in the hospital for a week. The lung doctor wanted her to stay until Sunday but her primary doctor wanted her out of there because of COVID. Seems they have almost 90 COVID patients right now.

She will be on oxygen for at least a couple of months....maybe longer. She will also be on blood thinners for the rest if her life. She is only allowed to walk to the bathroom or the chair in her old bedroom for now because they do not want the clot to move.

Good news is that my Mom is a great cook and I think my sister was on a hunger strike the last 2 days. To be honest, it was comforting that she felt well enough to complain about the hospital food the last couple of days.

Continued prayers appriciated.

I will continue to pray for her healing. It usually is a good sign when they start to complain a little bit. <img border=">

Glad she is going home.

She has never been on blood thinners before..be VERY careful about not hitting her legs or arms on anything. Even the slightest bump against anything will create huge bruises and look like someone has beat the crap out of her..lol

And even the slightest cut will make you think you are bleeding to death. Keep plenty of band-aides on hand

Will keep her in my prayers


Thanks for the advice!

She was told to be very careful. If she bumped her head even slightly that she needed to get checked.
