Daddy here, Kelly asked me to give everyone an update. There is so much to cover I don't know where to start. Over the weekend the hives got worse. They have covered her entire body. Her fever got worse. It got as high as 104.8. The fever went up and down between 104.8 and 100 for the past 6 days. She had the shakes so bad they gave her morphine and Demerol just to get her to relax. Then they gave her an overdose of narcotics over the weekend when they added adavant. Which put her into a kind of mental coma for 4 days. She was very incoherent. Not completing sentences and talking in a strange language. She still isn't sure what day it is. They put her on 4 different types of antibiotics. They don't know what they are treating. Her sodium & potassium levels got so low they got concerned about her organs failing. Not sure if that was a possibility. Over the weekend her heart rate dropped to 65 over 40. I think. I was scary low. That combined with everything else scared me to death. Her heart rate is back to normal as are the other things. They did a biopsy of her rash to see if it might be chicken pocks or shingles. They started treating it and she started to have a reaction to that medication. They have done 3 x-rays, 3 CT scans and an MRI to see what is wrong. Nothing so far. Sounds like our daughter. She is speaking much better today. Still very tired. The nurses have been incompetent to say the least. There have been more screw ups then I can count. She is constantly talking about her death and funeral. I miss my positive wife. I am sure she will be back to bossing me around telling me what I am doing wrong in no time. The normal wife I know and love. Sorry to be such a downer, but I thought you should know what is going on. We need a break here. Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers.
