The aorta aneurysm has grown rapidly. The chest xray this afternoon resulted in ER admittance and now an ambulance transfer to a larger (heart) hospital.

We are looking at surgery either tonight or in the morning. This will be the third surgery in so many weeks.


Would GREATLY appreciate prayers.

Thank you all for the prayers, good thoughts, and love. It's been a really really rough week. The surgeon was concerned that infection was what had caused the aneurysm to grow so rapidly so he wanted a consult with the infectious disease department before surgery. Infection would cause risk to the success of the surgery and she would need a regimen of AB before he could operate. However we couldn't start any AB treatment until the infectious disease department concluded all their tests. Even after they did, the surgeon was not satisfied and still requested the AB regimen. This has resulted in her basically lying in the ICU the last 6 days and us just praying that the aneurysm wouldn't rupture before we could get to surgery (which would likely be fatal almost immediately).

All that to say - surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning. Honestly, I'm not even sure what we will be looking at after that - I keep getting conflicting info - I've just not been able to think about anything other than just getting to the day. I initially had joked that there would be balloons and ice cream tomorrow - but a different type of apprehension is starting to settle in this evening.

If you still have prayers and are willing, I would so appreciate them. I'm sorry to have basically disappeared but I did read the responses and just knowing that my fellow SIers were covering me has been such an incredible comfort. - And if you will extend your graces once more, I promise I will do better and update tomorrow.

Much love to you all. And stop right now and go hug someone you love (even if you can only do it in thought).
