Thanks to everyone for your prayers.

Re: Prayers for my family members

Last week we placed my mother in hospice care. For a frail 95 year old, I am amazed at how her body just refuses to give up. Her soul cries out to be absent from the body and in the presence of her Lord and Savior.

The family asks all prayers be that the Lord will take her to be with Him forever soon.

Praises to a hospice care organization that sees their work as ministry, not a job. The difference between those people who care about the patient and family, and those at the nursing home who are there to collect a paycheck is a wide gulf.

Re: Prayers for my family members

My brother in law passed from his frail earthly body to his eternal life in the presence of his Lord yesterday afternoon.

He had a great send off surrounded by my sister, their children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and his best friend singing hymns and expressing their love for him. His final minutes were with only my sister, their pastor and the attending nurse as he let go of his struggle to live here.

A good man, more a brother to me than being my sister’s husband. Our family will gather this weekend to celebrate his life and the profound impact his life has had on us.

Thanks to everyone for their prayers. He has truly been healed!

Re: Prayers for my family members

Update on brother in law: he had surgery in June where the lower lobe of right lung and some suspect glands were removed. He seemed to recover well from the surgery and was regaining strength and lung capacity. Then the doctors started aggressive radiation treatments and chemo treatments. He has gone downhill since the radiation. Basically the radiation scarred his healthy lung tissues causing condition called radiation fibrosis which is incurable. He was recently admitted to ICU for several days due to his inability to maintain adequate oxygen levels, then was moved to extended care.
Now, the doctors say he has fluid buildup around his heart, has had a minor heart attack, pneumonia again and there is nothing more they can do for him. He has been given at most two months to live and is being transferred to an end of life care facility closer to their home.

My sister and brother in law are both Christians and have expressed they are at peace with God’s plan. Their children and grandchildren probably don’t have the same peace.

Continued prayers for our family is appreciated.

Prayers for my family members

In the past couple of weeks my older sisters have had diagnosis’s of serious diseases.
Oldest sister has breast cancer.
Youngest sister had heart attack and part of her heart muscle is no longer functioning. This weekend her husband was diagnosed with lung cancer.
And, we had to move my mother into a nursing home because she needs more daily attention and care than she can provide for herself, plus the woman who was helping her at home started having health issues as well.
Prayers appreciated. God is in control.
