This feels right to me, too, though I'm no physician. I do think she
passes out after seeing the white horse, as I don't remember any sign
of consciousness from here during the attack on Maddy. 

But here's the interesting question: does this mean we will see Sara
in a wheelchair next episode, just like Donna's mother? We never did
get an explanation for that...

Still shivering,
