Gaye developed colitis and infection with fever raised her heart rate. She was medivacted to Alaska Regional Hspt. and is in the Critical Care Unit.  She is on antibiotics, morphine, and a respirator to assist with oxygen.  Her septic shock caused fluid swelling in her body. She has some lung infection as well.  Overall, she is very sick, but perhaps over the worst.  Sam Smith is here with her. His cell phone is 756-1637.  Gaye will be here for weeks, then to rehab. She needs your prayers and thoughts. thank you
