UPDATED DOWN THE PAGE A WAYS!!!

She's been ill for a couple of days and I sent her to the hospital last night in an ambulance.  Initial diagnosis was a stroke. They almost immediately transferred her to the "Big Hospital" in Prescott where they found double pneumonia that had gone septic, a urinary infection, severe dehydration, and other less urgent issues.  NO STROKE!
 
Got things somewhat under control but she's going to be hospitalized for quit awhile.
 
Put in a good word for her if you will.
 
Thanks.

She's sedated to almost a comatose state, hoses into both lungs to remove excess fluids, oxygen, antibiotics, urinary catheter modifications of her meds plus some new ones. Last time I saw that much tubing, hoses, and wires was in the carrier Ronald reagan a couple of years back.
 
We have some great doctors here (less money, more freedom, better conditions) and I have total confidence in the ones working on her now.  When I left this morning the head nurse asked she could speak to me in the hallway.  BAD NEWS, think I but no!  She asked when I had eaten last, how much sleep I had gotten in the last few days and if I were hydrating properly.  I told her maybe Tuesday night, probably five of six hours in the last two nights, and I didn'y know how much I had been drinking.
 
Then she ORDERED me to get a good meal, take a hot shower, drink all the water I could hold, and go to bed for at least four hours.  She told me "I'm not a doctor so my prescriptions and orders can't be enforced, but I'll do my level best to kick your ass if you don't follow them".  I asked her how she could tell.  She stated very simply that she was the best nurse in Arizona and I looked like pure-dee hell.
 
On the way home I stopped at Taco Bell for the first time in four or five years, went home and drank the Brita gizmo dry, took a hot shower, and crashed for most of the afternoon.
 
Anyway, thanks to you all for the support, and when she wakes up I'll take her the print out of this thread.  I appreciate it and I'm sure she will, as well..

Prayers and smoke headed your way My Friend.  And don't forget what that nurse said.  I'm thinking of you both.

UPDATE:  not much changed.  Blood count is getting closer to normal and the infection seems be being beat back, but she'll be heavily sedated for a couple more days.  Her lungs are still congested way to hell and gone.

I want to thank all MY FRIENDS (many who I never even knew existed and few I've had cross words with) for stepping up with prayers and good wishes.  Go bless you all..... even the two atheists and two agnostics who asked their religious friends to put in a word.

Another update:
 
infection is being beat down, they are taking her off of one sedative, and adding a diuretic because her lungs are a bit worse than yesterday.  All of her other vitals are good and they can't even detect her heart murmur from a childhood disease.  I'll call again this evening and if she is even remotely conscious I'll go over and spend some time with her.
 
Thanks again.
