I guess I may have left you all wondering what is going on. Marty has a blood infection that probably came from her iv. She has a very high fever and the doctors are doing everything they can to break it as well as prevent organ failure. This has been going on for several days and there has not been much change. Sepsis is a very dangerous blood infection but is often treatable. She has been on xigris to try to fight it, but she has not responded to it. She has been unconscious (in and out...mostly out) and is breathing with the help of a respirator. It is all pretty scary. I've been trying to be there and be supportive, but I am feeling really overwhelmed. She used to talk about CSN and the people on it and I have come to find it especially supportive in the last week or so. Thank you all for that.
