I need your prayers. My beloved wife Tae is in the Albany Medical Center hospital in Albany, New York. She was transferred there from another hospital. Yesterday evening we were at a restaurant in Cobleskill. After we ate she used the ladies room and on the way out she got a sudden sharp pain in her right front quarter of her head. On the way home she began vomiting and neither the pain nor the vomiting stopped.

I called an ambulance. She was taken to FOX hospital in Oneonta. I could not go as we take care of developmentally disabled persons and they cannot be left alone. I will not be able to make other arrangements for them until today. Fox hospital advised when I called they had done a catscan and found a broken blood vesseland severe bleeding in the brain. They were going to transfer her to Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown. A few minutes later they called and said Bassett would not take her. No reason given. They sent her instead to Albany Medical Center. Albany called me at 4:00 A.M. Said they were going to put her on a ventilator, she was not responding and suggested I notify relatives that she may not live through the night. That is the last information I have. As soon as I can make arrangements for the developmentally disabled I am going to Albany.

Please give her your prayers. They are needed and I thank you. Her name is Kaneko, nickname Tae, Wickert
