I just received a kosmail from the oldest daughter of beloved Kossack racheltracks, asking me to inform her friends and admirers here that she is on life support. Please go to the linked profile page and, if you are an editor or admin of any of the groups listed, republish this to your group.

Whoever or whatever you believe in, please send your prayers, good intentions, and/or healing energy to this wonderful lady.

Here's what we know so far:

Hi Nurse Kelley.

This is Rachel's oldest daughter, [name redacted]. I need to ask a huge favor of you. My mom is in ICU on a ventilator fighting for her life. I can't cope with things right now so I was wondering if you would ask people in the groups that you know she's in to please send as many prayers to heaven as they can. I am too upset to go into a lot of detail but my mom had knee replacement surgery on Dec. 19th. Ten days later she was back on the table due to a suspected blood clot or possible infection. No infection shows up and no blood clot either. Three days later she is back home with me and the swelling, pain, redness and heat are getting worse by the day. Last night we go back to the ER because her whole body was blowing up. She gained 30 pounds in 21 days and she was not even eating much at all. I had to come home to my kids last night so her best friend came up there to stay with her. They both told the nurse that it was way past time for her night time dose of heart medicine. The nurse never brought it to her. As the night progressed her lungs and heart sack started filling with fluid and she could no longer breath on her own. Her BP spiked and her chest started hurting. At that point they put her on life support. I know that my mom has made many friends here that she cares for very deeply. That is why I am asking for your help. I am so emotional right now that I can't remember her password and I don't know which groups she belongs to. Anything you could do would be deeply appreciated. If you need to reach me my number is XXX-XXX-XXXX. Thank you and God bless,

Rachel, if by some chance you get to see this - or someone reads it to you - please know that I love you. The candles are lit, I'm sending all the healing energy I have from Pikes Peak, and I beg you to fight. Live, Sweetie, live!

UPDATE: Although Rachel's family didn't expect her to survive, she's now off life support. Sara R is making a quilt for her; if you'd like to add a message, contact Sara.

I am so bad at knowing what to say, (1.96 / 26)

Kelly, what kind of nurse are you? (2.00 / 16)
A little off topic, I do apologize, but I was just curious as my wife and I are also nurses.

I was a neonatal and transport RN. (2.00 / 13)
My career came to a screeching halt in 2001 following a bad fall on black ice.

That's fantastic (2.00 / 13)
The NICU folks- even when I worked in the PICU, the NICU folks did a job I couldn't do, and it obviously shows here in how much you care about the people you write about. I've lurked your diaries for a number of years, but this is the first I've commented- and if I'd had to guess before you asked, I would've probably said "NICU nurse". Those are always a different breed.

[ Parent ]
See, I couldn't work PICU. (2.00 / 13)
That's the thing I love about nursing - there's a niche for everyone. I know a second generation burn nurse [shudder] who thinks he's the luckiest guy in the world. :)

Oh, God (2.00 / 13)
But you're right. Yes, burns were some of my least favorite, but a very astute assessment- there's just so much to do, there is generally a niche for anyone.

Saw this on Orange, as well. (2.00 / 9)

Thank you, mapamp. Hugggs. (2.00 / 7)
