Mary1063 Posted August 6, 2013 Report Share Posted August 6, 2013 Shan is fighting a very tough battle with pneumonia and now a kidney infection. This is resulting in the engraftment process "stalling" because of these infections as well as needing more blood because of dangerously low platelet counts. She is on so many medications for the infections, for pain, for blood clots, and now to hopefully prevent Graft Verses Host Disease. She is critically ill. She is rarely awake. All I am thinking is that she is not wanting to fight because Leo is now gone. I can't pretend to understand what she must be feeling, even though she is very critically ill. The heart feels what the mind cannot grasp. I sat with her in ICU in an isolation room this morning. All suited up. Gloved. And masked. She did not wake. However, I spoke to her and expressed everyone's prayers and love. I told her to please keep fighting because she has so much left to do in this life. And Leo will forever be with her. Just as her Mother is still with her. Whether she heard me or believes it, I can only pray. Her brother will be flying back from CA on Friday. We are all very scared. I never thought this battle would be so difficult. Please please keep praying for a miracle. Thank you from our entire family. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
