My father is in an induced coma in an ICU and has been for 5 days now. He has Heart failure, respiratory failure and kidney failure. They performed Dialysis on him for one day and took him off as his Kidney started functioning again and is producing 150ml of urine an hour (however not purifying the urine yet) opposed to 1ml when he was admitted. His heart and respiratory system aren't looking as good currently. The doctors told me to prepare for the worst as its likely he wont make it, however every day his body is looking better to me, he's no longer swollen, he's got his colour back, his skin looks good, the nurses are saying that his heart readings have now steadied at a good rate and he twitches his eye when we talk to him. I mentioned this to the doctor to say surely this is a better sign, but the doctor told me to not be deceived as the inside doesn't replicate. Just as you steady your upset mind to stay positive, you get shot straight back down again. Im having to push the doctors to even tell me that there is a chance of him pulling through, this experience is destroying me. Has anyone experienced a loved one progressively looking better which in the end led to recovery or is the doctor right saying its just deceiving ?
