Prayer Request

I think I am fixing to pack for a trip to Nashville. My sister-in-law had an episode Saturday where she couldnt breathe and had chills. It apparently went away and then Sunday, she had another episode and an ambulance was called. Briefly, once she got to ER in Chattanooga, they diagnosed pneumonia and started IV antibiotics. Around 3 a.m., she took a turn for the worse and she was vented and sedated. Later Monday, her heart rate shot up in the 150s, put her on a med for that, didnt work, did EKG, showed abnormality. Did arteriogram, which showed a small blockage on a side vessel, but doctor didnt think that was causing this. By late afternoon, they decided to airlift her to Vanderbilt in Nashville. They tried taking her off the sedation meds today and her blood pressure shot up, so they put her back on a low dose. My brother said she opened her eyes briefly once during this period, but was quickly back out. Right now, they think it is something viral and it is affecting her heart.

Today, my brother sounded upbeat as they were going to take her off the sedatives and were looking for her to wake up. I was later told by mom that she had another episode, so the sedatives were given again. Please keep her, my brother and their 2 beautiful teenagers in your prayers!

It?s obviously due the comfort and easiness arriving with the online casino that many people, at present, are choosing to stick with online casino rather the traditional land-based casinos.
