Please pray for my mother
MsLady | April 29, 2011 | MsLady

Posted on 04/29/2011 5:36:16 PM PDT by MsLady

I would like prayer for my elderly mother. She's very ill and I'm not sure how long she has. She's bounced back before but, this time it's pretty bad. Long story short she had a bad fall, ended up with a head injury and broken wrist. She is just not getting better, losing weight, feels nauseated, won't eat, weak and down right miserable. The fall was 4 weeks ago. Tonight I talked to her and she said she had a burning in her chest. The doctor thinks it might have something to do with her aorta, which felt a bit enlarged. He was not completely sure. It could be indigestion. She's always had stomach problems, she says she's never felt like this before. Because of her age, 89, and her frailty they can't operate even if they needed to. She just keeps telling us she wants to die, she's tired and sick and just wants to go to be with the Lord.

One thing you can do is make sure she is laying elevated (head up), maybe get her almost sitting if it’s not uncomfortable. Lots of times it’s heartburn or a little leakage from the stomach back up. My grandma has this problem and being elevated while laying down madea big, big difference.

Prayers up.

I was wondering about that. She is bedridden at this time. She hasn’t walked since she fell. She’s to weak. She’s always had digestive problems but, says she’s never felt this kind of burning before. Says it feels like her chest is on fire.

‘Chest on fire’ sounds like reflux. Try a dose of Nexium before meals. Also, start getting 6000 units of vitamin D3 into her daily, preferrably in divided doses if she will take it twice a day. Drugstores sell chewable D3, too. Also, try to increase her intake of folic acid source foods.

Prayers up for her and you. I am caring for my dad who also says he wants to die. I am sure it’s been a long hard road. Thank God we have a good God that answers our prayers and knows our sufferings and tells us to cast our care upon him because He cares for us.

He cares for you and your mom. He sees your every tear. Thank God we have a great and merciful God!

"She just keeps telling us she wants to die, she's tired and sick and just wants to go to be with the Lord."

It breaks your heart, I'm sure. As much as you love her and don't want to lose her, supporting her and understanding her feelings are very different from wanting to say goodbye. She needs to know that you respect her feelings and know that she will be with the Lord, and hurt nevermore.

A prayer has been said for your Mother, you and the rest of the family. May God provide for every comfort to all of you.

The doctor thinks it might have something to do with her aorta, which felt a bit enlarged. He was not completely sure.

Has he done any sort of imaging that would confirm or deny this unsureness?

I think my sister said they did a CT scan on her today. But, there’s so much going on I can’t honestly remember for sure. I’m getting all of this second hand too. I live about 1100 miles away and haven’t been home yet. I was waiting to see if she regained enough strength and go home to stay with her awhile. The doc said she had the symptoms of a leaky aorta but, it could be indigestion or something to do with not enough circulation in her upper intestines, stomach?(something like that) I forget what he called the condition. Both of which would need major surgery and she is to weak and old for that.

Has she ever had some probiotics (ie good bacteria supplements)? If she has ever been on antibiotics, it kills off both good and bad bacteria, but you need to replenish good bacteria. In the past docs prescribed probiotics when patients were on antibiotics, now they don’t, and people wonder why they have so many more gut and stomach problems now.

I lost my mom last August after a long illness. She suffered a lot during that last year and her death wasn’t easy. I miss her a lot, but I knew it was better for her to be with God than to keep suffering the way she was. I hope your mom can feel better. There’s always a light ahead. I’ll pray for your mom.

Thank you!!!! The attitude is a huge part in getting better and I think she’s just given up. I do understand why though. She’s not been well for a few years now. It’s been a slow decline. The fall she had really set her back. She’s just miserable.

Thank you!!! I know that dying is part of life. I know that our separations as long as we know Jesus is temporary. It’s the suffering I hate seeing so much. I know one day we will understand, but, right now that part is the hardest for me and I’m sure for my mom.
