Prayer request

I told you about my aunt who is ill.  She has been in ICU in Worcester MediClinic since Monday and is struggling.

It all started when she woke up on Monday feeling off.  They drove back home to Cape Town from Mosselbay but halfway she became very sick and was admitted to Worcester MediClinic.  She went into ICU that same day with breathing problems.  They discovered a bite mark on her leg and started treating her with antibiotics.  Her fever started coming down and things were looking well. 

Wednesday evening her blood gas levels were off and she was put onto high pressure oxygen.  Yesterday they found that she has a blood clot in her lung.  Her oxygen levels didn’t improve and last night she was put on a ventilator.  She has trouble with fluid retention, her fever is back and she needed a blood transfusion.  The bite on her leg is badly infected and they don’t know what it is. 

Please pray for tannie Santa and for oom Nico, Lizbé, Pieter and Nico and their spouses and children.  They need your prayers in this very difficult time.
