Vanity: Prayer request
me | 02-08-06 | samiam1972

Posted on 02/08/2006 7:07:19 AM PST by samiam1972

Please pray for my grandma. She was taken to the hospital last night in severe pain. She's in surgery right now and is expected to be under for 2-4 hours. She's 88 years old and may not make it through this. Her health has deteriorated rapidly in the last 2 weeks. Our priest is there with my parents. Leona is in a state of grace right now. Please pray that God's will be done. We're all hurting right now.

Samiam - requesting prayer for someone is never a vanity. God bless your Grandmother, may the Lord bring her through this. And God bless you and the rest of your family too.

Prayers up!

Lord,
It is hard to face that dark reality
that our life is limited,
and one day, easy or hard,
we will return to you.

And yet, even seeing the outcome,
you bless us with the desire to carry on,
and give us hope,
for you are our healer,
our light,
our salvation,
who has pity for our sorrows,
and care for all our ills.

Lord, today, we especially recommend to you our sister(brother) (name),
who is looking down that hard road.
Be with her, and if you will, let her body be healed.
Give her and her family the strength they need,
and smooth their way in the face of all obstacles,
and fill them with that peace that only comes from you.

Lord, you are our light, our life and our salvation. To whom else should we turn?

Amen.

UPDATE:

Leona made it through 5 hours of surgery. She is in ICU on a ventilator and is alive. She's not well and will never be the same. I guess God wasn't quite ready to take her yet. I'll take every minute of getting to hold her hand but I still hate to see her in pain. The doctor's aren't sure if she'll wake up and be lucid again or not. She's at great risk of so many different infections. She won't be going back home with my parents. We have the huge task of finding a care facility worthy of such a great woman. :o) Her life has been an inspiration for me on many occasions.

Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers. It really helps to see the kindness of others.

May God watch over your grandmother and guide those who care for her. I work at a skilled nursing facility in central Missouri, and I would not hesitate to recommend our facility to my own relatives (and there's not any others that I've seen that I can say that about). We are Medicare/Medicaid certified. If you would like more detail, please FReepmail me.

UPDATE:

Leona is holding her own. She is responding to nurses with yes/no questions. She still has tubes and wires everywhere and lots of hurdles to get over but she is a fighter! Doc said her heart and lungs are quite strong and have even talked about the possibility of her being able to go back home with my parents if she gets stronger. We didn't expect that at all and are very encouraged by this!

Thank you all for the kind words and prayers. We were prepared for the worst and have been given a small reprieve. Again, thank you!

Laura
