Prayers for Ruthanne

bikerdude's wife Ruthanne, our sister in law, is being admitted to the hospital. She's been feeling poor and weak. Any prayers are appreciated please.

Re: Ruthanne

I just got home from hosp. She's in rough shape right now. Having a hard time breathing from effects of cong. heart failure.

Kidney function is not good, so pushing lasix/diuretics is hard. She may need temp ( at least) dialysis to help.

Blood hemoglobin is low, getting shots to stimulate production of kidney enzymes that does the job normally, if that don't work will need transfusion.

Kidney labs are all crappy.

Heart enzymes are elevated. Not saying it's an attack, possibly from stress on heart from CHF, and excess fluids.

She & I are in rough shape and need your prayers.

She tends to panic when moving about causes shortness of breath, takes a few minutes to regain oxygen levels and calm down.

That's all I have time for tonite, will update as I can.

Re: Ruthanne

she has taken off 2 liters of fluid overnight, helping with shortness of breath.

Slept well overnight; wish I could say the same, lol.
Continuing to push diuretics.

Have my computer here @ hosp, will try to update asap.

Re: Ruthanne

Docs from our primary's office were in, labs are stabilizing, & improving.
Has lost 5-6 lbs of fluid so far.

Getting meds by injection or oral now, no word on heart enzymes, (forgot to ask)
Able to walk to her bathroom unassisted, with MUCH less exertion.

She's in much better spirits as the day progresses. I'm pooped. But happy she's feeling somewhat better.

She's pestering me now to order her lunch. A good sign! :-)

Brought her home tonight, not 100%, but much better!

We appreciate all of you who offered prayers and good thoughts on our behalf!

A year ago March, she was in the hospital too; I told her she needs to consider a different "Spring Break"! LOL

That is very good news Jim and Ruthanne!

I hope both of you get some much needed sleep now to regain your strength.

Continuing prayers for you all. And of course, our love is always there for family.

May God bless you with even more recovery.
