Urgent Prayer Request

I just recieved word from my brother that Mom is in the hospital.

She's been sick with the flu, hasn't been able to keep anything down for two days, including medication. Considering that she's bipolar, diabetic, and has some heart problems, this is a very bad thing. So today she had an appointment and her sister was going to pick her up at 10:30. But Mom apparently left way early for her appointment and was already there when my aunt arrived to pick her up. Understandably, my aunt was both confused and very worried.

Mom didn't bring her cell phone or anything else...she just went.

The clinic sent her to the Emergency Room, and she's since been admitted for observation over the weekend for dehydration, low blood sugar, electrolyte issues, and very low blood pressure.

My brother is on the way down to get some things from her apartment and will hopefully see her yet tonight. Please keep her in your prayers.

Those fluids(with electrolytes) will make a big difference. Praying for your mom and all your family. Thank God she arrived at her appointment safely.

Just read your post, and prayed and will pray more to Fr. Kevin. He's a powerful intercessor for me, and he's been in heaven now for over a year. Pray to him, I recommend him. He and St Therese are a dynamic duo, a tandem I always pray to everyday.

PAX,
