First and foremost...
I received an email from my cousin today who happens to live not far from me, his wife collapsed last night from complete heart failure. They are both in their 40's and have a 12 year old son. She was resuscitated after 1 hour of touch and go attempts at betting her breathing again. She was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where they induced a coma so that her body could rest the most while they evaluate. It has been found that her heart is only working at about 8% efficiency. Good news has been heard in that she woke up, despite all the medication to make her sleep, and she spoke, recognized people and wanted to be awake. She was convinced that sleeping was best right now. We don't know the path they will take but a transplant has been mentioned as a possibility. There is a history here that I must explain. She was very sick in her teens with a bacteria infection that effected her heart. Her heart is weak and approximately 8 years ago she had open heart surgery to repair damage. They've always known that her heart could give out earlier than one hopes.
Please pray for Hilary, Richard and Mark(her son).
