Justin's Aunt Gina has been in the hospital for a couple of days now--she has a blood clot in her brain, and was being given blood thinners to help dissolve the clot. Only, the clot has not responded to the blood thinners as expected, and the clot has actually grown bigger (and there may be more than one). My understanding is that the clot now starts behind her eye and wraps all the way around her brain. Justin's mom told us that the clot is actually causing part of her brain to shut down.
It's also my understanding that she has been transferred to a different hospital with a specialist--but this specialist has only performed the operation to remove the clot six times, and none of the outcomes of the past surgeries were particularly good (all ended in death or serious brain injury). Overall, what we've been hearing consistently is that the doctors aren't really sure how to treat her or how to proceed, and I can only imagine how terrifying that must be.
Gina and her family have requested prayers, and I just want to get this request out to as many people as possible who could lift up Gina and her family in prayer today. Our family would SO appreciate your prayers for the doctors, her family, and her healing.
