Prayer for my Momma please....

A few months ago, on October 22nd to be exact, my Momma (Debbie) was diagnosed with breast cancer. On 11/3/10 she had a double mastectomy and then on 12/3/10 she had reconstructive surgery. And during that time I asked for prayers from all of the people reading my blog.

Well I need your prayers again. I probably should have posted this sooner but I honestly just haven't had a chance to post anything but copy and pasting my reviews from the books I read.

On 12/26/10 my Momma was running a fever of 104.8 so my Daddy took her to the hospital. He went ahead and took her to the hospital that had preformed the surgeries in all instead of the one close by because he figured all the doctors could work together. Anyhow, when he took her in they admitted her and when she finally got into a room they couldn't keep her blood pressure up so they moved her to ICU. She was in ICU until Friday, 01/07/11. We rang in the new year in ICU. It was a LONG process and she had a breathing tube and feeding tube in. They were also giving her a ton of fluid and she wasn't putting out much so they started dialysis to take some of the fluid off of her and to do the work that her kidneys wouldn't. I stayed the week after Christmas at the hospital with my Daddy. Poor thing has only been home about three time since the 26th. Anyhow, they finally took out the breathing tube on 01/06/11 and she was doing really good. She's weak but she was improving. Well, they finally moved her to a regular room on 01/07/11 and then they moved her to a bigger room on the dialysis floor on 01/08/11. BUT last night they realized that she was bleeding in her stomach so they put a tube down her nose and found an ulcer and a place that she was bleeding. They think that that is all due to the trauma and stress she's been going through while she's been in the hospital. So they moved her back to ICU early this morning to keep an eye on her and they are giving her medicine to heal the ulcer and stop the bleeding. I know she's tired of being in the hospital, so will you please pray for her. Also pray for my Daddy as he will not leave the hospital but for a few hours at a time. AND also pray for the doctors, that they'll have the wisdom to help her get better.

She was supposed to start chemo on 12/22/10 but they said she still looked to tight and weak from reconstructive surgery that they postponed it til 12/29/10, which she didn't have. So now we have no idea when she'll start chemo.
