She is on a ventilator, she has copd. She's been in the hospital since Jan 3 2016 and and off the vent a total of 6 days. 3 days each time then her carbon dioxide levels spiked and she had to be intubated. She now has a trach. She's not weaning off the vent well:( she's in a nursing home/rehab now over an hour away from her family and the place is awful. Shes been in this place for a little over a week now. I just can't see her laying there day in and day out when she could be home with her family.
