That's awful. I don't understand, though. I thought the heparin was supposed to get rid of the blood clot. Is it not working?

From what I've gathered from these updates, the heparin isn't as effective for her because of the location of her clot.

Thank you for posting the information.

For those having a problem, I also have gotten the sign in page occasionally, but I just hit the board index button without signing in, since the sign in didn't work awhile ago.

Yeah, they mentioned they were having registration/log-in issues.

As for the deal with the heprin, they said that the heprin is stopping the clot/clots from getting bigger or moving further into the bloodways it's currently jammed in, but the clot/clots are to large/thick for it to break up, and because it's at an inoperable spot, they can't get the clot removed one way or another, and clot removal/break-up is what needs to happen to help cure her, basically.

If she weren't having all these other problems, would the clot eventually just be reabsorbed?

For those who still can't get in, there's a new report posted by Rugrat0ne:

Update from Stas this morning, based on the nurse's report, January 16th, 2018, 9:01 am -
Twice last night her heart rate went down from ~60s to 30. She was given Atropine both times. They are bringing her temperature up to 34C to help her heart.

They attempted to perform another cat scan, however they could not go through with it, because she was unable to lay flat long enough even for 10 min of the CT, because the oxygen saturation in her blood started rapidly dropping from 99 to 80%.

haven't seen the doctor yet

Here's the last post that was put on the thread:


Summary of doctor's conference, posted January 16th, 2018, 6:49 pm:

Unfortunately, the doctor feels that they have crossed the point where the treatments they are giving her are having very little effect, and are, rather, treating things just to treat things.

They have reached the maximum limit on the saline treatments and on one other medication already, so those can no longer be used effectively at all.

Pupil reactivity has continued to drop, meaning there is increasing damage to the brain, possibly even the brain stem, itself. If that degrades completely, there will be no one for them to save.

There is nothing more they can do for her, surgically, with medications, with treatments like the cold wraps, or any experimental or radical treatment.

At best, if a miracle should occur (and the doctor does use the word "miracle" as what is needed), and she should wake up, she would have significant disability and very poor quality of life. She might need to spend the rest of her days in the hospital.

Stas is not ready to let Sunni go, yet, (understandably) but we're reaching the point where her heart may give out on its own, or some other "point of no return" may be reached. Please send him your love and support in our thread for that, here. He's going to need it.

I would suggest everyone please do send a message to him-he needs all the support he can get right now. It's a terrible ordeal he's been going through and I'm pretty sure he will appreciate it.

(I accidentally logged out of PBK and can't log in again...)

Life isn't about how long you live, but how well you live. As terrible as this may sound, if there's nothing more they can do for Sunni - then there is already no one left for them to save.

I'm so sorry. I wish there was something we could do.
