We've hit a rough patch with my mom. Her body continues to make way too much fluid. The doctor drained nearly 2 liters of fluid from her abdomen on Monday, and nearly all of that fluid is back already. Her feet and legs are so swollen, as is her abdomen.
They are working her in early tomorrow morning to drain the fluid off again, and they are going to put in a drain that will stay in and continually drain the fluid out of her body while they try to figure out why she's still producing so much fluid 6 weeks post surgery.
My mom feels lousy due to all the excess fluid (her weight is up 15 pounds, and believe me it isn't fat or muscle). This makes it even harder for her to eat and drink, which means she just can't gain any strength. She is pretty frail and weak.
She needs healing in the name of Jesus Christ. We just can't seem to get her over the hump. She is very discouraged, and tired of feeling bad. Her surgery was April 6th. She just wants to be well.
Please pray for my beautiful mom.
Her name is Donna.
