As many of you may or may not know, I posted an earlier topic about my friend who was admitted to the hospital. Well, they finally found out what was wrong with her. After some blood work they found that her Magnesium was dangerously low and they wanted to keep her until they could get it to a normal level. While in the hospital she had a pulmonary embolism, which is a blockage of an artery in the lungs by fat, air, clumped tumor cells, or a blood clot. The coughing was so violent she had to be incubated and put on a breathing tube. She has been unconscious for about a week with the assisted breathing. Yesterday they where able to take the tube out and she is conscious again. They said, if she was not already in the hospital when the pulmonary embolism occurred she may not have made it. Thank God that she went in before this happened. I don't know how I would've handled it otherwise. Thank you everyone for praying for her, and please continue to do so until she is well enough to come home. Thanks again everyone.
