Last Monday my nanny went into hospital for key hole surgery. She had an ateotic aneurism in her groin. What should have been 3-4 hours surgery turned into 9 hours because there were complications. Her arteries started breaking and she was bleading out. Now she has untold stents in her arteries including one in her kidney. That was Monday. It's now Saturday. She's been in an induced coma since, wires coming out of everywhere and she's on dialysis. There's a 90% chance when she wakes up she will be paralysed. This was supposed to be in and out surgery. Why is my 77 year old nanny fighting for her life? All I can do is sit there beside her bed in ICU, hold her hand and let her know I'm here. There's talk about if she shows no improvement over the weekend they basically giving up. But she's not deteriorating, she's just staying the same so I don't want them to give up, she just needs time! My heart is aching and I just want to talk to those who have been through similar, offer me any comfort/advise xx
