We got the test results back from Zeeland Hospital this morning and my mom has MRSA. She is under quarantine and still in ICU. They feel the infection came from her port where they do the dialysis which they removed last night. They are hoping to hold off on dialysis until Thursday giving the antibiotics more time to work their magic in her blood stream. They also said if they tried to put in another port now it may become infected if the antibiotics haven’t kicked in enough yet. They have finally been able to stabilize her sugar and blood pressure as well. My dad is still shaky and dizzy in the mornings and so far no word on the echocardiogram he had last week.
Wow, I can’t believe the outpouring of thoughts and prayers we’ve been getting. They are so appreciated!
