A close call

My mom was admitted to the hospital on Sunday. She has pneumonia. When she got to the ER her BP was 60 over 30 and apparently, her kidneys were failing. After they realized this, they admitted her right away. It was a close call.

She began to make some improvements, was feeling better and breathing better. Until Tuesday when her BP bottomed out again and she started feeling much worse. Turns out she also has sepsis.

5 IV bags full of antibiotics in 36 hours have helped, but she is still there. I do think she's feeling better and she's probably going to be OK now, but it's hard for her - she's pretty much NOT into being sick and really dislikes being forced to have a roommate. They're telling her she'll probably get out tomorrow. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
