Sickness at the most unexpected time

Well today was interesting to say the least. I was on my way home after a productive day, and all was going well...then I got the call. My dad rang and shared that my mom who had gone to the hospital to recieve a few tests for some fainting spells that she had been having for several years. The doctors had always connected the spells to her hypoglycemia, however after she failed one of the tests today so badly, in fact her heart stopped for 33 seconds and sent the doctor team into panic. Her heart finally started. Dad preceeded to tell me that they would need to go in tomorrow to put in a pace maker. This was extremely troubling to say the least. My mom is only 47 years old. She has had more than her fair share of trials. Ovarian cancer, a severe back injury that occured while getting out of a van (go figure), breast cancer, and now this. My mom is one of the most important people in my life. But I know that she is really scared right now, and so am I. I can't help but think is this really God's best? I struggle to find the answers and the simple answers and things that people say in times like this though well meaning just don't bring comfort. An ordinary day, with simple tests that turned into the unexpected and extraordinary. I hope and pray that God will not let me or my mom down. I hope that this will be the last of this nature and we can move on. God please act on our behalf.
