It’s been such a long month. She went from calling/texting all day every day to needing to be sedated for weeks and is now having issues with her kidneys. They started continuous dialysis and want to switch to intermittent dialysis to see how her kidneys do and see if they will recover on their own. If not she will need that transplant also. She’s also doing physical therapy daily to build her strength back after being sedated so long. Because of all that, she’s not currently activated on the transplant list. They want to work towards getting her up and walking before they reactivate her. She’s now on veno-venous ECMO and a ventilator. They’re working on bringing down the vent some to rely mostly on the VV ECMO. They are also slowly tapering off most the sedatives as well. They want her comfortable, not sedated. We went to visit yesterday and she was 90% alert and communicating a ton. Which is the best I’ve seen her since this all started!!

She’s been put on an Ecmo machine. It’s working well for her thank goodness because the next step was intubation, which we don’t want. Now all we need is time & a donor
