I am asking again for prayers for my Mother-in-law. It has been a very emotional weekend. Friday morning, an aneurysm she had on her spleen burst. After getting her stable, they took her to surgery to try to get the bleeding to stop. She coded twice on the table and her heart stopped for a total of 6 min (2 before surgery and 4 during). They were not able to close her up from this surgery because of all the fluid and swelling she has. Therefore she is unconscious and they have her paralyzed from the neck down. They have been concerned about her kidney function because she has not produced a lot of urine. As of today, she was producing more so that is a good sign. They started dialysis tonight to hopefully pull some of the fluids off. The doctors are saying they are cautiously optimistic about her situation. Another concern is her brain function. They have did one catscan and didnt see any signs of a stroke but need to do another one to be sure. If you know her, you know what a wonderful person she is. She has been through so much but you will never hear her complain or question it. She just knows God has a plan for her. Please remember her and our family through this extremely hard time.
