I am sorry to have to share this news with our family here at IHD. As most of you are aware Goofynina (Susie) went in to surgery on or around January 21st to have calcium deposits removed from her stomach area. The intended surgery was a success but unfortunately Susie developed an infection which was first thought to be peritonitis due to the fact that Susie does PD, this was later considered to be false and the Doctors are unable to find the source of her infection. The infection is causing her severe pain that is almost unmanageable leaving the Doctors with no other recourse but to send Susie home and offer hospice care. I talked with Susie's husband Sam this morning and learned that they are considering a two week window of which morphine is being administered to keep the pain to a minimum.

I will update when I learn more. I am trying to give her immediate family space and time to visit.

UPDATE Noon FEB 13th
I heard from John (Susie's Brother-in-law) Susie has taken a turn for the worst and may not make it through the evening. Last night the family was there and she was alert for a very short time after doing dialysis. She has not been coherent except during that brief moment.

I sent this in a personal message last night, and my feelings are magnified today.

We are all in this together, good times (like Vegas) and bad - today.  Heartbroken is an understatement. 

It is comforting to know that we are not alone, and that Susie knows how much love we have for her.

Susie is someone who, in the short time I've 'known' her online, has touched my heart. I am so sad right now, I can't even believe this is happening to her. Prayers and loads of love for her.

WOO HOO NEW KIDNEY PEEING !!!(Transplant 23/10/07)

« Reply #24 on: February 13, 2008, 11:48:14 AM »

So that's it, doc's can't find source of infection so they will send her home for hospice care ! This is making me so angry.
With all of the available tests today they can't find it ?
Susie deserves so much more.
I hope the pain is being managed as much as possible, but also hope that the doc's aren't giving up finding out what is wrong and fast.

Massive Hugs for Susie, Sam and families.  :cuddle;  :grouphug;  :cuddle;  :grouphug;  :cuddle;  :grouphug;  :cuddle;  :grouphug;  :cuddle;  :grouphug;  :cuddle; :grouphug;  :cuddle; :grouphug;
