20080718 – early update on Al and Judy

Anna was on her way to work – Very early 4:30am, when she got a call from the hospital and Judy was moved to ICU from progressive care due to drop in blood pressure and oxigen level. Late last night the family received new news about options for valve replacement, validation from MRI’s and CAT Scans taken yesterday that no new strokes have happened this week. This is good news in that her cognative fuctions are impared because of the infection that has made her septic. So as you can see the information is very fluid and creates confussion. Good news is she may have options and this is a ray of hope for the family. This is all provided that they can perform the cath today to see the damaged and infected valve and she can hold her own. My father-in-law is being transferred to the same hospital this morning and he his making good progress. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers while the family is on this emotional roller coaster.
