PostSubject: My Younger Sister   Tue Mar 01, 2011 11:16 am

Received this email from my youngest sister about the sister between us.......I hadn't heard from her this week like I normally do and now I know why....... Blue

Shelly is in the hospital. She went to ER on Wednesday for bronchitis and was sent home with meds for that, which seemed to set off her sensitive blood pressure. Friday, after monitoring her own BP for an hour or two, when it hit 199 she drove herself to the ER in Ridgecrest. They were attempting to stabilize her BP, gave her valium in her IV, and when she woke up, she was @ the hospital in Bakersfield. They still haven't told her what happened with that. While poking around on her, they found a lump on her kidney, they suspect it's an adrenal tumor. ( I looked it up, 99% of them are benign) They took an ultrasound, ct scan and an MRI, haven't gotten back with her as to any results yet. This tumor may have been the cause of the last BP episode she was hospitalized with. She's still not feeling very well, but they have her stable now.

Mine was the only phone number she had with her, so she asked me to pass on the info. She will update with any results as soon as she hears anything.

She is asking for all of our prayers.

Oh my! I'm sorry to hear that she's having such trouble. No But it's sure good to hear that they're keeping her in the hospital. So often now they release people before they're really ready to be released. Prayers going out for your sister, Rhonda.

I will be praying for her, Rhonda. I know what it's like to find yourself in the hospital and not know how you got there or what's going on.

Thanks all.....I talked with Shelly a few minutes ago and she feels "icky" as she put it......She had a hard time getting her breath to talk and the meds they have her on makes her sick to her stomach.....She will have to be transported to UCLA for surgery on the tumor and not sure how long of a recovery that will take. Thank you for the prayers and please continue to do so...... Blue

I'm sorry to hear she is still feeling so miserable. Did they say how long it will be before she has her surgery? If that is what will bring her relief, I hope she doesn't have to wait long. She continues to be in my prayers.

Got a text from Rhonda tonight asking for prayers for Shelley's safe travels as she continues treatment. She really appreciates prayers for her.

Shelly was transported to Cedar Sinai last night, which would've been a 3-4 hour drive by ambulance or shorter if they flew her there......Her surgery will be there since the hospital she was in isn't equipped for that type of surgery.....Thank you all for your continued prayers. Thumbsup
