The hospital called me at about 10am to say that Katie’s blood pressure had dropped and that she was very unwell. She remains that way now. Her blood pressure has stabilised a bit but she has virtually no urine output – ie her kidneys have failed. She can not clear the toxins from the blood. I am afraid she will continue to worsen today. The next entry from me may well be the one we have all been dreading.
