My dear prayer warriors,
Melissa has returned to ICU as of last night.
Her O2 Sats had been dropping and since there are only a few nurses on the bone marrow unit trained to work with critical care patients, the doctors felt it was better for Melissa to be back on the ICU.
We are hoping this is only temporary.
They believe she may have a mucus plug in her lungs (the mucus plug would most likely be blocking her airways so that the alveoli would not be able to expand as they are suppose to--in layman terms) or the reoccurence of the CMV (Cytomegalovirus).
She had a bronchialscope yesterday and they still awaiting the results. Melissa's mother (Patti) will keep me updated on what she finds out.
I will then keep all of you informed as I find out as well.
I ask for continued prayers and for all my Catholic prayer warriors, please offer up a "Hail Mary" and even your daily Masses for her.
She needs us and we cannot let her down!
Blessed be God Forever!
