Sp;ring/Summer Hospital Stay Day 14 Comment #2

May 30, 2016

Angela's sleeping pattern is very disruptive but she is at least resting.
The doctors reported that her respiratory rate has significantly improved and that her creatinine value has dropped from 2.1 to 1.9. These are indicators that fluid removal through the use of Lasix is improving lung capacity and kidney function. If recognizable positive changes continue she will be discharged from ICU and readmitted to the general care unit by tomorrow.
Once breathing rate and kidney function are restored focus can return to white blood cell count . Today it was reported that her WBC is now 6.3 up from the 5.2 that was reported yesterday. This continued progress shows that the bone marrow is actively repairing itself.
This mornings report brought tears to my eyes. #heartofalion is up from the mat and now taking command of this battle.
