aunt Paticia update!

Albumin- serum albumin is the most abundant blood plasma protein and is produced in the liver and forms a large proportion of all plasma protein. Serum Albumin's are important in regulating blood volume by maintaining the oncotic pressure of the blood compartment.
My aunt has a very low albumin level of .9 , normal would be 4-5. (albumin also means nutrition status)
She is on NS, blood, TPN, antibiotics, anti fungals, propofol, fentanyl, and has many tubes and drains. She is fighting for her life in the ICU, the ventilator is set with PEEP.
Please pray for her wounds to heal, and her sepsis syndrome to resolve!
Thanks to all my wonderful friends and family!
