Gosh, this is so terribly sad. I'm not sure I can help you bring her comfort, it sounds as if you are providing her with support by being present and determining her needs. This surgery is hard enough to recover from even without the complications of infection. My thoughts are with you and your family and I hope she pulls through.
my prayers are with your family. I know this may sound strange but is she allowed some soft quiet music in the room, one of her faves? just a thought. yyou seem to have things covered with the lips, that is quite annoying when the lips go so dry like that, especially seeing as the tubes will dry her mouth anyway. i hope things turn right, you never know there could still be light at the end of the tunnel for her,
thinking of your family amanda x
