|Paging Dr. House?

First of all, thank you for all the well-wishes and prayers. Mom is doing better today. She is still intubated, but she's responsive and her organs appear to be coming back on line.|
The thing is, though, that the doctors have no idea what caused this. They did a CT scan, expecting to see blood clots that would have caused her system to go acidic and start shutting down. There were none. They have no idea why her body just unilaterally went nuts. They told my sister something about her system not processing her blood and that's what caused it. Which, what? She had blood work on Friday and was pronounced to be in great shape and her iron count was fine. By Saturday her BP was 50/30 and they were giving her transfusions again.
This is not the first time her doctors haven't known what was going on with her, but it is the worst. I really think they have no idea what they are doing.
So my current plan is that I am not flying to Montana. Instead, I am going to do everything in my power to get her to come out here and be seen at a real hospital. I do not know if I will succeed in this task, but I will seriously try.
Again, thank you all for the well-wishes. I have read and been buoyed up by them all. If there is any change, I'll let you all know.
