You deffinatly need to call her doctor or take her to the ER, where ever you think she will be seen the quickest. (sometimes my doc can see me quicker than waiting in the ER) I am one of the rare people that a water pill actually clogs me up more! But she does need to be seen ASAP! Please don't wait any longer!!!!!!!

Please let us know what happens, I will be praying for her!!

Hey there! Thanks for the update. Do they know what caused her to become blocked up in the first place? Also, how is she doing now?? Has the swelling gone down yet? Has she gotten discharged from the hospital??
