Thank you again for all your prayers and kind wishes; I'm sure they lit her way home...
LATEST UPDATE: As I was leaving to fly back home, the doctors discovered that her trouble breathing came not from the COPD as previously assumed, but pneumonia, picked up I guess while she was lying on the bathroom floor before I found her. They're treating that now, too.
UPDATE: Mom has stabilized. Her blood pressure is back up, respiration and heartbeat are closer to normal, she's lucid and eating. My sisters, both medical professionals, are optimistic. Now it's watch the kidney function, and a long period of convalescence and physical therapy.
Thank you so much, everyone who answered my request for prayers.
Flew home to NY for Christmas with the family.
Woke up Saturday morning to find my mother on the floor.
She's in ICU now with sepsis and undetermined cardiac problems complicating pre-existing diabetic and COPD conditions.
All the prayers you can spare will be greatfully accepted.
