Mia's Memoirs

Elevated respiratory rate

Mia's respiratory rate has over doubled overnight. She was in the normal upper teens to low 20's and currently is in the upper 40's to low 50's.

I'm petrified she may be back in CHF but I am holding on to hope that once she gets her morning lasix in a few minutes that it will lower.

She could certainly use a few prayers. The last couple days have been the best she has had for a few weeks. The port was healing and she was eating a little bit of food. For the life of me I cannot understand why this keeps happening. Every time she gets a bit better, something worse happens.

I'll post a little later if the lasix starts working. If it doesn't we may be taking another trip to the U of M.

Oh Denise, we are so sorry. Just when you get your hopes up. You and Mia are always in our thoughts.

Her rate is still higher than I would like it to be but it has dropped into the 30's and very low 40's.

She seems to be resting OK so we will continue to wait it out to see if it stabilizes. I will be happy as long as it doesn't creep back up. If it is no worse than it is now we can wait until morning and call her cardiologist.
