Very scary (day 4)


Nancy is pretty much the same this morning, sleeping a lot, and able to barely nod yes or no. She's retaining a lot of water, and her kidneys are working but weak. So we are watching and waiting, praying for her kidney function to pick up and infection to subside.

She had some brief periods of a fast, irregular heartbeat (v-tach), this morning, so she is back on IV amiodarone along with her antibiotic. It's working perfectly, her vitals are all good, and she has been resting comfortably for the last hour.

This is all still very scary. I've been giving her reiki when there are good opportunities. I'm not sure if it's helping her or me more.
