    I got a call last night from my brother in law that my sister is in the hospital. She has pnumonia.....they found a couple spots on her lungs. They think she may have had a stroke too. I guess they will be checking that with a cat scan or MRI to see if there is any bleeding in her brain.
    She hasn't been well for awhile. They checked the ozygen level in her blood, and it was 79. I guess normal is 95-100. She is 52, and her name is Debbie.
    All i ask is that you all could keep her in your prayers. She's the last one i have in my family, and i have a sinking feeling about this. Our brother died at 43, our dad at 44 and mom at 59. So we don't exactly have longevity in our family. Maybe this will all be just a scare....i don't know.
    Thanks in advance.
    AL

    Lord, visit and restore your servant, Debbie, for whom we offer our prayers. Look upon her with mercy; give her comfort and sure confidence in you; defend her from danger and harm, and keep her in perpetual peace and safety, through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

    God, the strength of the weak and the comfort of sufferers, hear our prayers and grant Debbie the help of your power, that her sickness may be turned into health and our anxiety into joy, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Father, giver of health; comfort and relieve Debbie, and give your power of healing to those who care for her and those who minister to her needs, that she may be strengthened in her weakness and have confidence in your loving care, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

    Wish there was something I could do to help. Hopefully she pulls through and you two can break the mold that seems to be short lives in your family.

    Thank you ALL for the outpouring!
    My brother in law (who is more like a brother, then "in law") was really quite scared. He asked my wife for prayer for Debbie. It looks like it's working. I got a call last night saying she's doing much better. They didn't find any brain damage. (Although being related to me, you think they would HAVE to find SOME!)
    Anyway.........the pnumonia seems to be getting under control. They say she might get out of the hospital some time this weekend.
    She had been on the sleeping pill "Ambien", and they found out she was getting up in the night and medicating herself at home, without realizing it. So they think she was doubling her meds, and not realizing it. She vaguely remembers doing it, but it was like a dream. They think this might be what was causing the low ozygen level in her blood. The meds slowed her breathing to where she wasn't getting enough oxygen.
    THANK YOU alla again for the prayers.
    I would have been here earlier, but the computer server was down since early Thursday afternoon. Just finally started working just before 10am today.
