Pray for Aziza

Please keep my friend and her daughter Aziza in your prayers. She took Aziza to the hospital yesterday because she thought she had a stomach bug. She ended up collapsing and was in a code blue. They rushed her to another hospital where she went into emergency surgery. They think she may have a bowel obstruction but they're not sure. She is out of surgery now but in a medically induced coma and they were unable to close the incision from her surgery.

Since surgery, her kidneys are failing and they are unable to put her on dialysis because she is bleeding out too fast to attempt to put the lines required in her body. Her heart function is compromised and her blood pressure is crashing... She has liver damage and she is septic. They said the loss of blood flow to her various body parts from the unknown obstruction causes a snowballing of complications. She was mottled and dark purple from her chest down to her toes going into surgery. She is a very, very sick little girl. The doctors just keep saying that she is critically ill.

 Aziza is 6 years old and has Down syndrome. Please be praying for her, for my friend and for the doctors as they figure out what's going on with her and how best to treat her. She is updating Aziza's blog as she can. You can follow along here
