She Can’t Breathe

The phone rang in the middle of the night from the hospital. I was afraid to pick it up. A nurse informed me that my mom had moved to a closely monitor unit. She had trouble breathing. Without the Vapotherm, her oxygen level dropped to 70%. They cranked the device all the way up and her oxygen was at 95%. If she continues to get worse, they will put her on the mechanical ventilator. I am hoping and praying that won’t be the case, but the odds are against us.
