Update From Dave

7 p.m.

Thanks for checking in.

It’s been a BRUTAL week for Irene and it’s ending on a crescendo.  She experienced challenges today @ dialysis when her blood pressure dropped to 88/40 and they had to add more fluids into her system because her heart was laboring so heavily.  As a result, she was unable to remove the targeted amount of fluids.  The nausea is raging this evening…because it looks like it’s going to be a long night…she’s fighting for that comfortable, relieving position, bouncing back and forth on her bed like a fish out of water.

I continue to be amazed at her perseverence…and hoping she’ll recover and bounce by morning.

Thanks for caring,
