Prayers, for DH's grandmother, please?

She is such a sweet sweet lady and she was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure today.
She is in her early 80's and can run circles around any of us She is very active. She has had stints put in before,but, this scared her enough that she told MIL to come to the E.R. for her. Anytime before, she has told her no, don't worry, it's fine. So, MIL naturally got scared with this one. She thought she was having a heart attack and called an ambulance, thankfully, her son is staying with her and called. She couldn't breathe very well at all. Now we know it was because of the fluid in her lungs. They are going in tomorrow morning to find out the extent of it. She has already told the doctors, no heart surgery and of course, no life support, when that time comes. I just want this to be a mild thing and get her better with medication. DH's granddad passed 2 years ago and she is just getting back to life again.

Texas, hang on, it sounds worse than it is most times. DH's mom lived 20 years with it, only had to be careful of fluid intake. She hopefully will be fine..I'll be praying for her and all of you..Let me know if you need anything ..

Thank you everyone!! I appreciate the prayers!!

kadesma, I've been reading up on it. I knew basically what it was, but, I feel better about it now. She is strong and healthy other than this. I'm sure that she will live a lot longer.
