Sending Sissy Home

My oldest sister, and the second to the oldest of our nine siblings , just turned 38 on August 22. Sissy, is what her nickname is since childhood. Three weeks ago she had a major stroke that lead to herbeing  hospitalized. Within a few days the docs found that she had a infection in her brain, meningitis. They had to put a drain in her brain from all the fluid. From there they found that she was having mini strokes from time to time which has lead to an extensive amount of brain damage. She had lupus, an auto immune disease, which is making it harder to treat the infection. 
At this point, our family is praying for a miracle , but preparing for reality. 
Gloria , aka Sissy, got married at 20 yrs old to a great man, Manolii Alexiou. Together they had a beautiful family of 5 kids. Sadly Manolii passed away from cancer in 2008 . She then had a son 4 years ago , with a great friend, Aaron Rosenthal.
Now her oldest is 20and the youngest only 4. 
She's always been there for everyone else, but never herself. She neglected her health and wellness because she lived to make anyone she could happy. She loved to help anyone in need. 
Now it's her that needs us.
And her beautiful children ! 

Please help make this difficult time alittle easier. Prayers and Anything is most appreciated ! 
Thanks for taking the time to read and share.
