Keep my sister in your prayers...

As many of you know, my sister is handicapped. Cerebal palsy, to be exact.

Well... she got very sick over the weekend, and it got worse and worse. You all know that my Mom had a major stroke back in May, so I've had my hands full with her, ever since she came home. I had thought my sister was getting better, since my Dad kept downplaying everything. Yet, she hadn't eaten since Sunday, and her breathing was extremely poor. I didn't know ANY of this!

I took my Mom into her room earlier, and she noticed how bad she was. She was furious with my Father, and made him take her to the ER. Once we got there, they didn't waste any time taking her in the back.

After many tests, needles, etc... they were pumping her full of fluids.

Doc came in to talk with us, and it wasn't good news. She tested negative for the flu, but she has got a bad case of pneumonia. So bad, that she's got a 50/50 chance of living through this.

Telling my Mom was the hardest thing about tonight. Given my sister's condition, my Mom has taken care of her for her entire life. My sister is 33. So, that's a lonnnng time.

I got word, a little while ago, that they got her fever down, and her heart rate is stable. But they've got to run more tests, and we're hoping she can pull through this.

So, take a sec and keep her and my family in your thoughts. As bad as 2012 was for us, we could use a better start to 2013. Just last week, my Aunt lost her battle with cancer. We could really use a turnaround.

Update: It's not the flu. It's not pneumonia. They're still running tests to find out what it is.

Good news, however: I think we're through the worst of it. Once they hooked up the IVs to her, and pumped her full of fluids and meds, her body started to react, right away. Came to see her today, and she looks SO much better. She is still in pain because of the breathing tube, but I'm glad she's starting to recover. Once they diagnose her, I'm hoping she can get back to her normal self.

The doctors constantly complimented my family for caring for my sister so well. Her medical history only has a few incidents on it. I had tell them: She can thank Mama for that! They even said that if we would've waited one more day to bring her in, it would've been too late. Her organs were already shutting down. So even in her current state... Momma knows best!

Ok, so now they're saying it IS pneumonia. Jeez. And she's still in critical condition, so we're no better than we were two days ago. It's been a rough couple of days, to say the least.

Her blood pressure was dropping earlier, but they're giving her meds to get that back up. Before we left this evening, her BP was back up to almost normal. She's trying like hell to wake up. So... I'm hoping she'll be awake by the morning.

She's still fighting, and I hope she continues to do so.

Thanks for all the well wishes, everyone.
