My dearest KC friend is in Intensive Care, on a ventilator. Her condition has been deteriorating rapidly over the few months. Last week her potassium and sodium levels were so out of control that she nearly had a heart attack. She's been on oxygen and major IV meds for more than a week now.
Yesterday, the docs placed in stint in one of her airways, strengthening it to resist the pressure of the tumors pressing on it. During the procedure, they put her on a ventilator to help get through it. They say she'll get off. They say she may recover enough to go home on portable oxygen. She wants to go home. She wants to see her cat and sit at her meditation altar. She wants to have a cup of tea on her beautiful deck.
I ask God to be gentle with her, to bring her peace. Please join me in that prayer.
