My sister Debbie and her son Troy

My sister Debbie was doing well last night but today her oxygen level/saturation has been fluctuating and just isn't as high as it needs to be. Of course, it is painful for her to breathe deeply but she needs to just hug her pillow and do it anyway. She's been hyper-ventilating some but as long as we are there to guide her to breathe right, she comes back around. We are just concerned because she is at such a risk for pneumonia and that is exactly what doesn't need to happen.
Then, last night, her oldest son Troy who was there at the hospital with all of us, of course, had a bad reaction to a particular medicine that he has been taking, was taken to the ER and admitted a short time later. His liver enzymes are very high (this is a bad thing) and he is in critical condition. He has improved today but will still be in the hospital for a few more days as they endeavor to get the enzyme level down.
He is on the fourth floor of Fairfield Medical Center and his mother is on the third floor! We teased him and told him that he had to do something because his mother was getting all of the attention! *smile*
Please join with us in praying for them. I don't know what I would do without them.
I may be going back to the hospital tonight, depending on how Debbie's condition is. Her daughter, April is supposed to call me at ten.
Hope everyone is having a great week!
