Prayers needed for my mother
April 29, 2011 | Swordmaker

We need prayers!

My 95 year old mother, Virgina, did not wake up this morning. She is still only semi-responsive in the emergency room at Sutter Memorial Hospital. When I arrived there from Stockton at 10:30AM here blood pressure was 53 over 37 and her O2 saturation level was 62%. I took her hand, which was very cold, and said "Hi Mom!" and she opened one eye and looked at me. When I asked her how she felt she mumbled "Awful!"

She then went back to being only semi-responsive.

Her BP is now much better and O2 is up to 87% on 100% oxygen... But she is still out of it.

The diagnosis is double pneumonia... But there also may be congestive heart failure.

At her age, I just want her not to suffer... Whether she is called home to God or recovers. What I fear is the horrid middle ground where she winds up with no quality of life in a nursing home and doesn't know who she is, who her family is, or what is happening to her and lingers forever in a medical limbo. She has left orders for no extraordinary measures to save her... And we will honor that. So prayers are needed for the best resolution for her... But God's will be done.

My condolences. There are no words to help you thru this time, only prayers, so I will offer them, that God will hold you and your family close now.

Thanks for letting us know Swordmaker. The loss of both my own mother and my mother-in-law in recent years is something that lasts the rest of our lifetime. There’s so many things we wish they could have seen or known and other things it’s best they never knew. So sorry for your loss and prayers up for you and your family in this difficult time.

My condolences, Swordmaker.

I feel your pain. I lost my father on this last September 17th (Constitution Day). Our emotions still run as we think of his passing. We are comforted that he is no longer suffering.

From what you write, your mother was in a similar condition. I wish you and your family comfort in this difficult time. Celebrate her life!
