  • Prayers Please

    Today I got a call from my dad: my grandmother had a stroke on sunday night, she is unable to communicate. They say she does not have much time left. They are not going to put a feeding tube on her so that means she is only on IV and that does not give her sustenance. I guess the feeding tube is another operation and they don't think it will help anyway, so why put her through that. Anyway my family and I could use the prayers. Thank you in advance.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
    This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

        Thoughts and prayers for your ailing grandmother, and for you and for all her family and friends, sshadowss. May God heal and keep her now, and may He grant her comfort and grace and peace, in her final hours in this life. When Jesus comes to claim us, may Our Heavenly Father preserve us all in everlasting life in His House of Many Mansions, where Our Lord has promised to prepare a place for each of us.

              God bless your grandmother and your family, that you all may get through these trials and tribulations. May God be with you and your family, everyday, through thick and thin and through the perilous waters. God Bless and Amen. Psalm 46:1 says God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Trust is the Lord. God Bless.

                    Thank you all for your prayers. When dad called me on Monday he said that she couldn't move or respond in anyway, that if you held her hand she would squeeze but that was a reflex.

                    Well my sister and I went to see her on Tuesday. My sister had to leave after about 5 minutes but I stayed for a bit longer. While I was there she moved her left hand to her nose to scratch it--twice. And she yawned and used her left hand to cover her mouth, she almost opened her eyes. I thought that was great news, so when the nurse came in I told her.

                    Then I find out on Wednesday that the Doctor took the IV out in the morning. So she has no sustenance at all. There is supposed to be a meeting with the family and the doctor today. Some say she only has a feew days but I know of some people who were told they only had a month or two to live and that was 2 years ago and they are still around.

                    I have come to accept the fact that she will be going to be with the Lord, soon. and that it is the best thing for her. HOWEVER I will miss her and I know that some members of my family are not going to do that good when it happens. So please continue to pray for my family and for my grandmother to be with the Lord when she goes. Thank you for your continued support. God Bless.

                      I guess I was wrong. My grandmother is improving. She is now eating pudding, which means she is awake, and laughing at my mom. So your prayers have been working.

                      THANK YOU!!

                      but please keep those prayers coming, they are WORKING. God Bless

                          Religion is flawed, because man is flawed.

                            Glad to hear about the improvement!

                            My family was told that my Grandmother had terminal cancer and would not be able to make it 4 months. Well, that was more than 5 years ago. She declined any treatment to fight the cancer, the following year she went back to the same doctor and had more tests done. There was no sign of cancer at all.

                            In my mind, that proves that no prayer goes unheard. Your Grandmother is in my thoughts and prayers! Stay strong
