Prayers For My Mom Please....



This morning, my Dad had to call 911 because my Mom was in respiratory distress. She has COPD and unfortunately is still a smoker. She's been fighting a cold for several weeks and yesterday and New Year's Eve Day felt progressively worse and short of breath. She had an Asthma attack yesterday morning and couldn't sleep all night. This morning she told my dad she wanted him to take her to the ER. He went back upstairs to get dressed, and when he came back down she told him to call 911.

My mom is in ICU and currently on a respirator and oxygen. She's been heavily sedated all day, so we haven't been able to talk to her at all. Lab tests came back this evening and her cardiac enzymes were elevated which my indicate that she also had a heart attack. They are going to run more extensive tests tomorrow to determine if she did or not.

It's going to be a long weekend at the hospital. I will try to update you all as soon as I can.

The picture above is of my Mom and I almost a year ago. She is my rock and my best friend. I'd really appreciate any prayers you can send her way!

Thanks!!

Monica,
I'm sorry to hear this, please let me know if there is anything you need help with on this end of town. I know it's hard when you want to be at the hospital as much as possible.

I'll be thinking about you and your Mom, keep us updated.
