JOY

This is an urgent prayer request! My sister, Joy, (will be 21 on Tuesday) had a bone marrow transplant last July because of aplastic anemia. she has done remarkably well until two weeks ago when she came down with pneumonia. My mom just called and said after the doctors report this morning (Joy is back in the hospital because of the pneumonia), Joy is seriously ill. She is at a critical stage. her heart has swollen to accommodate the lack of oxygen. Within the next 24 hours, she could be on a ventilator. Her oxygen level should be at 90 and hers is at 60. They are feeding her through a tube, because she can not eat enough to get the calories and protein that she needs. she is awake and joking and looking good. Her transplant is good, but the pneumonia is too hard on her body. PLEASE PRAY!!!! The next 24 hours is very critical!!!

Just wanted to let you know I'd lifted up fresh prayers for your sister tonight.

I have never had sisters, but I can't imagine that kind of weight if one were ill. My SIL's are such a gift. I need to let them know they are my "joy-bells".
