Rower Michelle Posted February 27, 2021 Share Posted February 27, 2021 Hello my family, I've been a little MIA of late. Almost two weeks ago my mother was hospitalized following complications from Keytruda. She had severe diarrhea that wasn't controlled with steroids. The Jersey hospitals are quite full (non covid) and she spent two days in the ED waiting for a CCU bed with acute renal failure. While her renal function is improved, she has a full bowel obstruction that can not be treated at this point. Her condition deteriorated rapidly from yesterday, so I fielded a few phone calls from the physicians and helped my Dad make the decision to end active treatment and transition to hospice today. My mom put up a pretty good fight with the endometrial cancer and lived much longer than anticipated with lung mets. So now we wait. I'm frustrated with my sister, in the midst of this family crisis, she decided to head into the office, leaving her husband and I to communicate with my father and the doctors. I know she isn't close to my mother, but I just don't get it. Please pray for a peaceful passing, we don't want Mom to suffer. Love you guys, Michelle BridgetO, Deb W, ChiMama and 1 other 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
