We are Home

For now. My mil is still in SICU and still very critical. She will be getting a transfusion soon and they are still drawing bile and blood off of her stomach with a tube down her nose. She also has one down her throat. I cannot remember what it is for though.

She cannot eat or drink anything. She has a cathiter and iv's. They will be doing an upper gi in the am.

She is somewhat coherent. She looks really bad though. No more chemo even to help with the pain. She is just too sick. They should take her port out of her chest I would think since it is so uncomfortable for her and she will not need it for the chemo.

Anyhow, I have a migraine and am going to rest a while. the boys have occupational therapy tomorrow and I am zonked. Also, please say a little prayer over our finances. The transmission work on hubby's truck today was $900.00 and last week the service and tune up was $194.00. He also needs a new fuel pump and soon. that will be another $300 + labor. Monkey's medical bills will hit week after next (the 8th) and the 13th he gets glasses. We do not have insurance for those. they will have to be special made and will run between $400 and $700. Unless God supplies another miracle and heals his vision and the hernia. Pray....................

Thank you for your prayers.
