    I haven't been around all that much because my sister-in-law has been back in the hospital alot lately. Three years ago she had a massive heart attack and had to have a triple bypass. Well about two weeks ago she had another heart attack. She has been in the hospital since the heart attack waiting to have surgery once again. But there are other complications in the matter. She is on dialysis three times a week now and the last time she had this surgery she wasn't. You see, my sister-in-law is a diabetic, she has been her whole life, and as far as I know noone understands what brought the first heart attack on. Hell, my brother says that they aren't sure what brought even this second one on. Now I am not sure whether or not her having to have dialysis complicates the surgery or not, or if it will affect it at all, I do know that my brother says that the doctors want to wait to do the surgery. I just wish that I knew what they were waiting for.

    Anyway, I started this to ask for your prayers for her. I know that it would ease my mind some to know that others were praying for her too. I am not a religious person in any aspect of the term, but I have been praying for her night and day.

    Prayers for you and your family, Darkesheart.

    Diabetes can complicate any invasive surgery. With her kidneys not able to perform their function, infections, etc., are a real concern for her medical team. They have to monitor her vitals very closely to find the proper 'window of opportunity' for the best outcome for surgery.

    I've had many surgeries over the 23 years I've been on dialysis, including just last week, and they are very good at it now. Whether you're religious or not, prayers just have to be good karma. I'm sending some now, get ready, it'll be coming in from the east.
    Good luck to her,
    HR
