Prayers for my Pamangkin "Owie"

I got text message from my older brother informing me that Chloie my pamangkin is now admitted in San Juan De Dios Hospital due to dyspepsia and dehydration because of continuous vomiting. Now she is in IV for fluids and vitamins.

Please Please pray for my pamangkin's fast recovery.

Dyspepsia
Dyspepsia (from the Greek- dys- and pepsis "digestion"), also known as upset stomach or indigestion, refers to a condition of impaired digestion. It is a medical condition characterized by chronic or recurrent pain in the upper abdomen, upper abdominal fullness and feeling full earlier than expected when eating. It can be accompanied by bloating, belching, nausea, or heartburn. Dyspepsia is a common problem, and is frequently due to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or gastritis, but in a small minority may be the first symptom of peptic ulcer disease (an ulcer of the stomach or duodenum) and occasionally cancer. Hence, unexplained newly-onset dyspepsia in people over 55 or the presence of other alarming symptoms may require further investigations. (from wikipedia)

Dehydration
Dehydration (hypohydration) is defined as an excessive loss of body fluid. It is literally the removal of water (Ancient Greek: ὕδωρ hýdōr) from an object, however in physiological terms, it entails a deficiency of fluid within an organism. (from wikipedia)
