Our dear Sr. Jackie Hudson has been in the Intensive Care Unit and on a ventilator for a few days. Good news today – she was taken off the ventilator this morning and is breathing on her own with just supplemental oxygen.
She is not out of the woods yet. As Sue Ablao said, “She has a long way to go.”
She is on pain medication as well as medication to control her blood pressure, and is getting her hemoglobin back up to normal.
Jackie has been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, which is a cancer of the plasma cells of the bone marrow. The doctors hope to get Jackie’s condition stable enough in the next few days so she can begin treatment for the myeloma.
Please continue to keep Jackie in your thoughts and prayers as she continues to navigate this difficult passage.
You can still send your good wishes to Jackie care of Ground Zero Center for Nonviolent Action, 16159 Clear Creek Road NW, Poulsbo, WA 98370.
