These last 10 days hav been very difficult for a sweet young lady, Saroun. She is just 35 years old and suffering from serious heart failure. Sue's guess is that she has had high blood pressure for a couple of years at least, leading to heart enlargement and her present condition.
Saroun came to us with her sweet, poor village mum. Eight nights ago Saroun went into unconsciousness, resulting in a mid-night dash to an ICU. We got her back the next day and have continued to care for her. However, today Sue rightly judged that she was too sick to continue with us as we continue to live under the 'no dying permitted' ultimatum.
We succeeded in having her transferred thru' to CSI, a most excellent Christian clinic here in Phnon Penh. Now, CSI believe that her heart is so weak, it is unlikely she can continue to live. Late this afternoon Saroun has been taken by ambulance back to her home, about four hours from here. It is tough.
