Hate to ask, but Need your Prayers yet again..

Got bad news this morning. Seems that my mother had to go to the hospital this morning. The doctors have determined that she has a blood clot in her lung and think she has had a small bleed in her brain. They induced heavy sedation to protect her brain from any further damge than may have already occurred.

The doctors believe that she came in to the hospital before any truly serious damage has occurred, but they don't know just what the extent of damage is as yet.

My parents live three hours away, and I don't have a vehicle dependable enough to make the trip, so, for now I just have to wait by the phone and glean information as I can. They may be transferring her to a hospital here in Indianapolis for treatment as soon as they determine just what they are dealing with. They are concerned, as she's been dealing with congestive heart failure for several years. It's been controlled with drugs and a pacemaker, but it does make treatment of her current conditions more problematic.

It's tough getting old, every body system just seems to fall apart a piece at a time. If you would, please add Josephine Meyer to your prayers tonight. It means a lot to us. I'm an Agnostic, but I do believe that prayers do help. That may be contradictory to you, but... call it a focusing of energy to help heal,
or a meditation of the mind..or just a comfort in time of stress.
