Hi friends, My friend Donna and I have been friends since she was 18 and I was 19 years old. We have a lot of history together. The story I could tell about us during our younger years would make an interesting short novel. The fact that her son and daughter are half brother and sister to my daughter would be the gist of it. Donna just had a birthday last Friday, April 8th. One of my granddaughters shares the same birthday with her. She just turned 49 years old. Much too young to be where she is today and that being in the hospital on life support. She was found very late Friday night unresponsive. She had a severe asthma attack and did not receive oxygen to her brain for at least 10 minutes before she was found by her roommate. The doctors have been running MRI's, EEG's and every other scan to determine how much brain damage she has, but most all tests come back with the same result and that is that she has severe brain damage. She is heavily sedated because her body keeps seizing for some reason, so she hasn't been conscious for quite some days now to even know what is going on. I am praying for the best that she pulls through. Sometimes you just know that even though you pray for the best, the best is not going to happen. I am not ready to lose her though. She can't not be a part of my life, she can't leave her children and everyone else who loves her. No matter what the final result is, can I ask that you say a prayer for her, her children, her family, for me and for my family. My grandson is taking it very hard because Donna was like a 2nd Nana to him. Pray that she feels no discomfort and that if it is her time to leave this world, that God welcomes her with open arms. Pray that God blankets us all with His love so we can forget about the unbearable pain we are all feeling. Thank you all for taking the time to read this.
