Prayer Request

I have a friend who is currently in the hospital. She waitresses with me at the Tidewater Grille, is in her early 20's, and just had a baby back in April. I ask you to pray for her.
In the middle of the month, Holly went to the hospital with pains in her back and abdomen. Initially, the doctors thought that she had colitis, and she was hospitalized. Within the next few days, they determined that it wasn't colitis, but a blood clot in a vein in her intestines. She was moved to University Hospital in Baltimore, and has been there ever since. She's been on blood thinners, with hopes that the blood clot would either dissolve or be absorbed back into her body. Last night, she went into surgery where they found out that part of her intestines had died, so they cut that part out. Tomorrow morning, they're going back in to see if any more of her intestines have died, before reattaching them to her bowels. Then they're going to try to attack the blood clot. There's been internal bleeding and infection, and hopefully the surgery tomorrow with cure that.
If you believe in the power of prayer, please, please, please include Holly in your prayers.
