Vickie is being admitted into the hospital. Moving her from swingbed to ICU. Her O2 stats dropped to 80 on room air. At dialysis they had a tough time keeping it running hover completed a full session. 
 When Vickie came back from PT she had chest X-ray. They picked her up to give her a c-scan of lungs and an ultrasound of her legs to see if she any clots in them. She has a blood clot in her lung.🙏🙏🙏🙏
