Well, apparently my "no news is good news" thoughts didn't work this time.
My step-mom was was put back into ICU on Monday afternoon. She couldn't stay in a regular room because her heart rate and her respiration rate were both high. She just started to have some liquids today and hopfully, the feeding tube will be taken out in the next few days. She has a slight fever, but the doctors can't figure out where it is coming from. They've done 3 blood cultures and CT scans of her lower and upper abdomen. There is thought that the feeding tube might be the cause of the fever, but the doctors aren't for sure.
Anyway... I hadn't heard all of this until today... Thursday. Obviously, my dad has had a lot on his mind. I would, too.
