Kathy Spooner, Kris's sister, just sent an email out about her condition. I'm afraid it isn't good.
Hi, for those of you wondering why you haven't heard from Kristeen I afraid I have sad tidings. Saturday morning the nurses called from the facility she has been at since January. Her blood sugar and blood pressure were both low and would not come up with medication so they were calling the paramedics for transport to the hospital. She had been having problems for a couple of days and very lethargic. Friday night when I left she said she hadn't felt good all day but was confused enough not to be specific with thew reason. Since Saturday morning she has been only responding to painful stimuli. They have run multiple tests, cultures and CT scans and have found no medical/physical reason for the "coma" She is breathing with assistance and her blood pressure sometimes drops but comes back with medication. As for now I keep trying for a response but nothing has worked. in my opinion she has just given up. I saw a change in her starting last month when they informed us they were looking for another place for her since she did not require any of their particular services any longer and was refusing to get out of bed at all. Someone mentioned nursing home and that was not a place she wanted to go.
I would appreciate you passing this new alon to anyone you may think would be interested. I will let you know is her status changes in any way.
Her sister, Kathy
