August 2, 2012

Please keep my mom in your prayers.  She had a bad fall today and hit her head, causing two bleeds in her brain.  She takes a blood thinner so that makes it even worse. They lifeflighted her to a hospital in Tulsa and she was already on her way to surgery by the time we got there.  She is stable but we probably won't know the outcome for at least 48 hours.  The surgeon thinks the chances of a good outcome are very poor.  The doctor at the first hospital thought that if she does survive, she will have brain damage and won't ever be the same.

Just before I came home from the hospital tonight, we saw her move her toes and she was also over-breathing the ventilator, so those are both good things.

If you could please keep her in your prayers, we would greatly appreciate it.
