02:09 pm - FYI
ravenholdt is in the ICU due to complications from a collapsed lung from dealing with pneumonia for the last week and according to the doctors her chances don't look good. Just passing around the news to people who might want to know.

Her husband is asking for help :

"I'm so sorry and ashamed to have to ask this request but, with everything that's going on right now I really don't have any other choice... With all the medical issues she has been having lately I lost my job about 2 weeks ago due to having to call out more than my boss was willing to work with -to take care of her and Lex while she has been ill, and, with Syl now in the hospital I have no way to even go out for interviews and/or work with no one else to watch Lex on a daily basis. We have bills that are due now with more coming and expenses that must be taken care of so I can make sure Lex is taken care of while we're going through this or we will be in so much worse a place than we already are that I won't even be able to ensure she will have a home to come to if/when she pulls through this. So as much as I hate to ask (because I'm usually the one to help others... not the other way around) I have to ask that if there's anything anyone can spare to help us cover our expenses while she is in the hospital. Any financial assistance anyone could help with would truly be a life-saver for our entire family right now. If you can help please send us what you can. "

They will set up a paypal account for anyone who wants to donate, there will be updates on this page :
