prayers for my Mom

I just need some prayers and hugs probably

My mom is in the hospital with kidney failure - we have no idea what happened but she just started acting weird and not functioning right.

Last week she was admitted for low iron levels and received blood transfusions and a large iron infusion - the iron problem is believed to be a complication from her gastric bypass (from 10 years ago) - they believe they by passed the small intestines that absorb the iron and hse has just now used up all her stores - she has always been on iron pills but never had high numbers.

She had her first dialysis treatment today and they told my dad to expect several more treatments before she can go home - I don't even know how often she can do the dialysis.

From reading online (I know) kidney failure is a complication of blood transfusions that are given the wrong blood type - she is O+ so no idea what they gave her - I think she can ONLY get O blood right??

I just need this to go well - I don't even know what is happening
Thanks
