I don't really understand what is happening, and I suspect there has been some confusion of the real story in its successive transmission from the doctor to the patient and from the patient to our reporter and then to us.  In the modern world of medicine with its systemic antibiotics, it is not necessary to find the source of the patient's infection to be able to treat it, since an i.v. dose of strong antibiotics will attack micro-organisms everywhere in the body.  Yet despite this, for some unexplained reason, the doctors are acting as though their inability to pinpoint the exact source of the infection is an excuse to give up on the patient and recommend hospice care?!  If they can control the pain with morphine, control the toxins with dialysis, and address the unlocated infection by systemic antibiotics, what on earth is the problem?!

They shouldn't give up on Susie.  They don't know how much we need her!!  I just can't lose another dialysis friend!

Yet, I don't want Susie to be suffering and in pain.   I hope and pray that she is comfortable.

Susie, Peace be with you~

You are right, Stauffenberg--there is more. It is a series of events that has brought it to this level.   I have been crying all day and now I just want to scream or hit something. The doctors have been trying to work miracles.  Susie has been much sicker than she wanted anyone to know.  She has been in so much pain, even with the morphine. I am sure more details will be posted later.   I can't say how sad I am today. :'(

I just saw this thread and it is so sad.  Like others said Susie was everybody's friend. I really enjoyed the few chats I had with her.  She is a very special person.   :( :grouphug;

Goofynina would be so proud at the determination of her IHD family.

I would explain this in more details if I could but I by no means want to distort the truth. Unfortunately we have to except what is happening even though we don't want to believe it. The way the infection has grown all through her body faster then her cells can keep up to fighting it off. John explained it to me in medical terms and I am so sorry I cannot relay the information as I heard it, maybe when Karol talks to him she will be able to better explain it.

Sluff buddy, you are doing a fantastic job keeping Susie's IHD family in the loop about what is going on with our dear girl.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I know how difficult this must be for you.  You two are very close and you love her so much.

You are appreciated, my friend.

Many hugs

Sluff, we don't need all the details.  Thank you so much for keeping us updated.  I am sure this is one of the hardest days you've had.  Please know you are also in my prayers.  Thank you for being such a faithful leader.  I need to say it loud and clear how important this site and everyone here is to me.  I truly would be lost without all of you.  Now all our focus is on Susie and Sam.  Thanks, also, Okarol for all the calls and emails you have been making.  My love to all of IHD :grouphug; :grouphug;

Sluff or Karol,
Please let us know more as you soon as you hear it.  You have been so good to keep us all informed.  Without you, we wouldn't know what was happening, and we wouldn't have the chance to say a prayer and/or send positive thoughts for our Susie.


Come on, Susie girl, hang in there!  And, please God, hear our cries and bring our Goofynina back to us.

I felt a sense of dread when I saw goofynina's name in all caps I hoped it was good but knew it was not. All my prayers and well wishes Goofynina. I am sorry you have to endure this.

Thank you for being real road warriors Sluff and okarol I know it is hard to have to deliver bad news.

Her brother says she's got about 15 family members with her, she's been sleeping for hours.
I feel her so strong right now - I know she can feel all the love from this group.

I too, remember her post about being scared as hell.  Oh Susie I am so sorry this has happened to you.
Sounds to me like she may have MRSA (staff Infection)  Antibiotics will not touch it  And hospitals are a breeding ground for it.
My prayers  are with you Susie and Sam.  Susie honey, keep fighting as hard as you can.
