Please Pray.

My dad's cousin is in not so good condition.
She had cancer a few years ago. With Chemo and Radiation the cancer went away. Everyone thought she was better. Sometime this year her heart showed that it had been weakened through all of the Chemo. She went in a few months ago to get something fixed in her heart or a pacemaker put in, I'm not sure. No one ever said exactly what she had done. While she was recovering from the surgery there was either a blood clot or a clot of plaque that causes her feet to swell and her toes turned purple and then black. The hospital she was in did not care for her very well and couldn't even tell her exactly what was wrong at first. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving she was doing better. Not great but better. They moved her to a nursing home to recover more because her insurance would not cover her staying in the hospital any longer. Monday night at the nursing home she was talking to her mother, sister, and boyfriend and told them that she was just going to turn over and rest for a bit. She told them they could stay and didn't have to leave. When she turned over she had a massive heart attack. When they got to her she was not breathing and her heart was not beating. The nursing home didn't have any oxygen or heart paddles. Her mother and sister are nurses and were trying to revive her. They weren't successful. It took the ambulance bringing in paddles to bring her back. She was out for a long time. They took her to a different hospital. She had another massive heart attack while in the hospital. They did tests on her and have told them more on what was wrong in the last 24 hours than the other hospital did in a month. She is heavily sedated and hooked up to every machine imaginable. They have her strapped to the bed because she keeps trying to pull her tubes out. They don't know how much brain damage she suffered because she was out. But she is responsive. I took my dad to see her last night and she nodded when he talked to her and squeezed his hand in response to things he said. This is hard for my dad because they were best friends when they were kids.
If you remember would you please pray for her. Pray that if God wants her to remain on this earth with us that He will heal her quickly and if He wants her in Heaven with Him that He will take her quickly and end her pain.
