Christ is Born! Glorify Him!
My friend, Resa Ellison, went into the hospital November 4 not feeling well. She had H1N1 with pneumonia which quickly became life threatening. She had to be sedated and put on a ventilator to breath for her. She has been in a coma ever since.
Here is today’s report: Resa had a challenging night: her stats moved around quite a bit. After comparing today’s x-ray with the past few days, the pulmonologist believes that Resa’s ARDS looks significantly worse. The lower quadrants of her right lungs have collapsed. This is not due to a NUMO. He performed a Brochiostomy to extract any possible mucus blockage. Resa’s nurse stated that the interior, upper quadrants of Resa’s lungs looked fine and highlighted that Resa did not crash during this procedure that required the vent to be temporarily disconnected. They were able to determine that the problems in her lower right quadrants are not due to mucus blockage. The pulmonologist presented Resa’s condition as very grave because he believes her ARDS is advancing. On the other hand, the nurse attending Resa today felt that the good signs indicated we had reason to hope Resa could still recover.
