    My mom is in need of all the prayers and good thoughts she can get.
    She has been in the hospital since Monday due to her emphazema and her failing health. Long story --- she has been going on 4 hrs of sleep everyday for the past 48 years due to my handicapped sister and then it was compounded with my dying fathers illness. She has had open heart surgory, asthma, chronic bronchitis, she is still needing surgory for artarie blockages & cateracts in both eyes.
    She was in the hospital for phnomina over 3 weeks ago and sent home and has not recovered. So this is why she was taken to a different hospital this time. Now her emphazema is in what they call the final stages and they were/are talking life support if she doesn't improve, while there they have run every test you can think of to thoroughly be able to treat her. They have found a very nasty bacteria in her system called klebsiella this bacteria can be deadly. Now to top it all off all of this is being compounded by her weakend immune system and the fact she weighs 92 lbs and barely eats.
    She is on breathing treatments and an aggressive round of antibiotics. So please include mom in your prayers??? Her name is Mazie! Thank you!

    It's always amazing to me just how much the power of prayer can be! My mom has made a fantastic recovery!!!! The doctors at the hospital in Chattanooga sure know what they are doing! When she went into the hospital the talk of life support was high, she never went on life support thank god! God put his hand on her and made the bacteria vanish, has her breathing better with her oxyegen and she has went home!!! I am also happy to report that my 92 lb mother is starting to eat and gain her color back! She will still need prayer to continue get better as she has a long way to go! Thank you to all of you who answered my plea and have prayed for mom, Our prayers have been answered!!1st
