More Prayers

Remember this post almost a year and a half ago about my Aunt Norma? Well, she's a tough cookie. She battled her way back from that and made it home. She had some major lifestyle changes to deal with but she was home and doing well. She'd have bad days still.... but all in all she was doing pretty remarkably considering everything she'd been through.

Right before Christmas she got a call to go to Pittsburgh for a transplant. Honestly right now I can't even remember everything they transplanted. I think it was stomach, intestines and pancreas. Or partial of some of those. But it was pretty serious. It was done to improve her quality of life so she could some day eat actual food again instead of relying on IV nutrition. Plus the IV nutrition was causing damage to her liver.

She's been in the hospital since that time and has taken many turns for the worse only to rally again. But she's really struggling right now. She's back in ICU. She has an infection, her kidneys are acting up and her liver is failing. She's now on the list for a liver transplant and I believe has made it to the number one postion because her need for a new liver has gotten so significant.

So if you're the praying type, please send some up for my Aunt Norma and her family.
