A Better Explanation

Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers in my behalf and my mother. I really, really can't bear the thought of losing her, she is so much a part of my life.
I re read what I wrote and realized it sounds like she got life flighted for her eye.
Let me back this truck up a bit. A few weeks ago, my mother was having a lot of pain in her eye, she went to the eye doctor who told her she had a strep infection in her eye. Some days after that is when her cornea was perforated from the infection and all the liquid behind her cornea had leaked out and her cornea was now flat. She has had TWO emergency surgeries now to patch up her eye, but last night it began to leak again.
AND to top it off, she began bleeding from her colon in the wee hours of morning, and had to call my niece to drive her to the local Reservation hospital. They worked on stablizing her from her extreme blood loss with IV fluids and some transfusions and then she was life flighted out to Rapid City. We do not know why she is bleeding so badly or what is going on. My sister is driving in her car, and will meet my mom at the hospital. Your prayers and good thoughts are much appreciated.
