While I'm away...prayers needed

Please send all the prayers you can spare to my aunt Anita in Omaha. As I've mentioned, she's battling cancer...multiple myeloma is the name of it. She is in isolation at a transplant facility where they are doing a stem cell transplant. As it's been said, they are taking her to death's door and bringing her back up again.
During this process they are killing all her white blood cells so her body will make new ones. She ended up catching a cold which has now turned into pneumonia. Her body has yet to make new white blood cells and so the dr's have basically put her to sleep (not in a coma from what I understand...just sleeping) to help her body focus on building those cells. They are hoping things will improve in 3-4 days.

I am having a hard time thinking of anything but her right now, so please send good thoughts and prayers her way. By putting her in isolation they were hoping to avoid something like this happening, but it did, and now all they can do is monitor her, wait, and hope her body starts recovering.
