Sudden illnesses are scary because one minute you can be standing upright and fine, seemingly the next minute you could be on death’s door.
The horrific part of all of it is that sometimes they come on so quick that what you think is just you catching some bug that you have dealt with a hundred times over is the one that eventually gets you.
It’s always sad to hear about things like this happening to other people and even more sad to have them happen over the holidays.
Which is why no matter what whenever you think you might have to go to the hospital always prepare yourself for if you have to leave five minutes from now. Put a small bag together of some things even when you are not sick to take with you to the hospital in case you might have to go because when minutes and seconds count you don’t want to be wondering where your insurance cards and whatnot are.

It was a heartbreaking shock to all who knew her or enjoyed her work. News has broken that conservative writer for The Federalist and frequent Fox News guest Bre Payton has passed away.
Co-workers and friends took to Twitter to share their shock and heartbreak. Some tweets began with prayer requests for Payton when she suddenly took ill.
A post on Caring Bridge explains what happened. “Around 8:30 this morning, December 27th, Bre’s friend went into her room and found her unresponsive and barely breathing.”
“She immediately called 911 and Bre was taken to the hospital where she was admitted to the ICU, sedated & intubated, and doctors began working up a diagnosis. After a CT scan and hours of testing, they have determined she has the H1N1 flu and possibly meningitis.”
“The doctors are concerned that her neurological signs are not great at this point and have informed us the next 24-48 hours are going to be critical for her. George is in the hospital with her in San Diego and at this time we’re just asking that you lift Bre up in prayer and ask for a healing miracle and a full recovery.”
“Everyone in the family is overwhelmed at this turn of events and is focusing all their attention on blanketing Bre in prayer and love. The outpouring of support the entire Payton family has received since Bre’s hospitalization has been amazing and this site will be updated as often as possible so they can continue to focus their attention and love on Bre’s recovery while still having a place to see all the well wishes and prayers from everyone.”
