My mom has been on ventilator for 15 days now. Her x rays were really bad 1 week ago and then suddenly she improved slightly. Her doctor says not a lot though. Since then she’s kinda been the same. No improvement for about 1 week. Her oxygen saturation is good. Although her ventilator oxygen is high (70-85%) she has stable heart rate, pressure etc. At this point we’re told that it’s a waiting period where her lungs can wake up and work or they can get worse and she can potentially die.
I’ve read a lot online about Covid pneumonia and have read that patients have taken months to come off ventilators. I hope I can find some inspiring stories here. I trust God and I know he has heard me. My mom coded and came back. I know he’s working his miracles, but it’s comforting to know that people have survived and that the possibility of her doing so is there.
