Update: 11:00 am

Pat IV went back to Houston yesterday morning because my grandma seemed about the same as the day before. Since then we've noticed that although the extra fluid is going out nicely, her heart rate is high and her blood pressure is low. Unfortunately, they're directly related... Also, they still haven't been able to make the feeding tube go all the way down through her stomach and into her intestine which it has to do in order to work. As I type, the nurses and technicians are giving another try at inserting it. If the feeding tube is not installed, although she has IVs which they can put energy into, within a few days her blood will start breaking down...

"The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed." -Deuteronomy 31:8
