The hot water thawed out yesterday and it pleases me! What could be more pleasing is Arlene's current update...
Alrene is retaining fluid which affects her breathing/lungs. She is on a C-Pac (or is it C-Pap?) machine to assist in her breathing. (It is the same machine used for sleep apnea patients)...forces breathing. They are trying some med changes to assist in both ridding her body of this fluid and to try to get her heart rate more stable(still high).
She will remain in ICU until these problems are remedied.
She is aware, but very sleepy. Can still speak yes or no. She is not on solid food because of the breathing problems, she is getting ice chips.
Keep those positive thoughts coming... GO ARLENE!
