I’ve been trying to call Penny at the hospital for the last two days but unsuccessful. Her son just called me about an hour ago to fill me in.
They took her into surgery at 6am yesterday. They were in there working on her for 10 hours.
They cut out everything that had been done up here with the last 2 surgeries. Both legs are cut from the soles of her feet to her knees. The incisions in her groin area are much larger and deeper because they had to install a suction pump tube.
Apparently, during the 1st surgery 5 weeks ago, there was a piece of plastic left in there that has caused sepsis to set in!!! She is full of infection that they are trying to get under control, so much so that they had to install this tube to keep it pumped out as much as possible.
On top of that, she has pneumonia too.
She is in the ICU on a ventilator and sedated. They are going to attempt to take her off of that later today and see if she can breathe on her own. She had been doing well up until last night when her blood pressure plummeted and they had to give her some blood. So far today, things are better.
Their biggest concern right now is the infection that she is full of and that is what the family is asking that you pray for. With her diabetes, they are worried about her body’s ability to fight it off sufficiently.
One bit of good news, her foot is regaining is color and warmth!!! So they think she is pretty much out of danger as far as losing it 🙂 Thank you God!!!!
Please join with me and her children in prayer for her speedy recovery from this current infection and pneumonia!
Thank you all for your continued support!
