Prayer for my Aunt

  1. 0
    I would like to take a minute to solicit a prayer for my aunt. While at work I found out she was being admitted to another area hospital for abdominal pain, it turned out to be a toxic megacolon with complete necrosis of the large intestine and septic shock. She is now S/P total colectomy with an ileostomy on several pressors, the vent and multiple antibiotics. I am hopeful for recovery, but it's not looking good right now. Thanks in advance.

    Hello nurseboy - I read your thread tonight and just wanted to tell you how sorry I am to hear about your aunt's illness. I'll bet she is a wonderful person. I know how hard it is to have a family member we love ill or injured, and sometimes it seems worse for us due to our nursing knowledge. I went through a similar situation a year ago with my aunt.

    Please know my family and I will keep you and your aunt in our prayers. I hope you have a support system for you to share your feelings with. You also have your allnurses family here for you. If, at any time you need to talk or vent, please feel free to pm me. I know when someone is critically ill, it seems like we never see any progress. I hope that you and your family may see those little improvements while she is in the hospital. Please remember to save some time for yourself, because you have so many people depending on you, don't spread yourself too thin.

    Again, please feel free to pm if you need anything. Anne, RNC:heartbeat

    Well update for today:

    I am happy to say that she has been weaned off of one pressor and steadily weaning off the second maintaining hemodynamic stability. She is waking on the vent and following commands and appears to recognize members of the family. So far things are looking hopeful, I humbly appreciate the kind words and support offered here and truly appreciate your thoughts and prayers.
