Please Pray for My Mother (vanity)
09/20/2011 | llandres

Posted on 09/20/2011 10:07:04 PM PDT by llandres

I wasn't going to bother anyone with a personal post, but I believe in the power of group prayers and I really need yours for my mother. She's 84 and has been in ICU since Friday. Two weeks ago she and my 93 year old dad both fell. He's healing and should be able to walk again before long, but my mom's frail, has been on oxygen for 10 years since her open heart surgery and has been struggling. Last week Dad called my sister and me to come up, saying she wasn't doing well. They live in the country and he's afraid if anything happened to her, he couldn't help her, so they decided to move to the nursing home in my hometown, at least for a few months until she gets stronger, so we got them settled. Four days later I got a call from the head nurse there that they were taking her downtown to get checked out at the local clinic. Doctor was on vacation all week, but the nurse practitioner said Mom had a urinary tract infection, and next thing I know, they took her by ambulance to the hospital in St. Joseph about 45 miles away. The doctor and his nurse there called each of us and asked about her having signed a DNR form at the nursing home! Her blood oxygen level was dangerously low and CO2 level too high. She also has really low blood pressure.

They've been having her wear a mask (like what people with sleep apnia wear) and she began responding better, but is still so weak and frail, and we need somehow to get her built back up. She has several IVs (two are strong antibiotics).

Anyway, my dad really needs her - she's still his sweetheart of 63 years. Thanks for your patience and if you would, please pray for her.

I really appreciate it! Linda

I wanted to give you an update on my mom. I believe all your loving prayers are helping her - they’re thinking of moving her out of ICU into a room today. I’ll be up there for a couple of days and taking Dad back and forth to visit her, but wanted to let you know and ask you to please keep remembering her in your prayers - her name is Donna.

Again, I treasure my FRiendship with you all, and will update you again soon. Bless you!

Exodus 15:26 ~ "for I am the Lord that healeth thee."

Job 12:10 ~ "In his hand is the life of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind."

Heavenly Father, by the Power of the Holy Spirit, restore Donna to a measure of good health, that she and her family might be a living testimony that you are the Great Physician. May these days be filled with the assurance that the joy of eternal life awaits ... "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, you and your household." Acts 16:31

May it be, O Lord, may it be, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen ...

Thank you for your continued prayers, we need them. Thursday I posted how much better she was doing, that they were moving her to a regular room. They did, at 8 pm that night, but on Friday when we visited, she was struggling and had to wear the bi-pac mask most of the time. It was scary. But today, she was again better and had been sitting in a chair for several hours. She’s been ordering a soft diet because it’s easier for her to swallow, so she’s actually been eating more than she had for a long time. We’re hoping they can build up her strength in this way.

Seems like every day is different, so I continue to ask for your prayers - they mean so much and you’re all wonderful for giving them. I’ll keep you updated, and thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
