On January 5th, Gayle had a brain hemorrhage. She was admitted to the UVA hospital in the Neuro ICU.  The doctors determined that she has an AVM (arteriovenous malformation) that ruptured.  They performed two angiograms to prevent further bleeding in the areas that it burst. They were able to do this in three areas, but the fourth will have to be done surgically or through radiation.  Gayle is currently recovering and resting in the ICU, where she is being monitored very closely. She has a stint in to drain the extra fluid/blood from her brain  to reduce the pressure.  She is off all sedation, but she is still unconscious. Doctors are regularly checking her reflexes. We are hopeful that her brain needs time to rest from this trauma, and she will be up and moving in her own time. 
Thank you for your thoughts, and love. They have been felt. 
"I lift up my eyes to the hills. 
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved;
he who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, he who keeps Israel 
will neither slumber nor sleep."
Psalm 121:1-4
