Prayers, please! *3rd Update*

Late 3/31 Per Nina - Just an update, my mom was an organ donor, so we are now waiting for a surgeon to come in and harvest her kidneys and her corneas. This will take place tomorrow morning at 11:30. My aunt is here, she was able to see mom this evening. Hug the ones you love and remember to tell them. Thanks for the prayers, please keep them coming.

3/31 Per Nina - We have a very difficult day ahead of us, decisions have been made to terminate my mother's life support. Due to the stroke she has suffered severe brain damage. She would never return the fabulous, glitzy woman she was, thank you all for your prayers . Please keep them coming the next few days are going to be hard.

3/30, This is from Nina this morning - My mom is not doing good! They have taken her off sedation and she is not responsive. We need a miracle. They will be doing an EEG and a second cat scan, will update you all later! Please keep praying. 
It will be at least 48 hours before we will know if she is going to wake up, I'm so blessed to have such great friends and family to keep our spirits up.

After arriving here at 5:45 this morning, we are at the hotel. going to have dinner and get some rest. We are awating the results of some tests. But so far my mom is not responsive to any kind of stimulation. Keep the prayers coming..

Please pray for GBusy, she had a stroke today and is now on life support.  This is my girlfriend Nina's mother and she lives in North Carolina.  Nina and family are traveling there tonight, it's about a 7-8 hour drive - please pray for their safe journey and that they can make it there to say goodbye if that's what's meant to be.

She came to the boys "Superbowl" football game in the fall and she was as rowdy as everyone else!  She's got a lot more BUSY in her, please Lord, let her show it!

Prayers and thoughts for all during this difficult time. It is never easy to lose someone dear to you but losing a parent is a little harder. Hope your friend is comforted by the amazing life her Mom lead and the wonderful memories she will leave behind. Hugs!
