Laura is in the hospital. She became critically ill on Thursday, June 1. She was diagnosed with severe pancreatitis and air lifted to the U of M hospital in the Cities. The serious issues were respiratory distress, Abdominal Compartment Syndrome, and multiple organ failure. She was intubated and placed in a coma, where she remains. 

Her blood pressure has been difficult to manage. Her triglycerides were extremely high, which is a common cause  in pancreatitis. 

Your prayers and healing wishes are welcome. The support has helped us put one foot in front of the other. 

Her address, if you'd like to send a card, is: 
Laura Smith
4A Surgical/Neuro ICU
East Bank Campus
500 Harvard St SE
Minneapolis, MN 55455

Visitors are welcome after she's transferred to a regular care room.
