Keep The Prayers Coming

My MIL has now been in hospice care for about two weeks. The past few days she has not been able to tolerate her feedings and her body is beginning to shut down. No one was sure she would make it through the night last night. She is still fighting today but she won't make it much longer.

-Please pray for my MIL. Pray for peace and comfort for her during this difficult time. Pray she is not in pain.

-Pray for my husband and his family.

-Pray for my kids.
They have experienced some family deaths but this is the first person who they were pretty close to. Now that they are older I think it is more difficult for them. My grandpa passed away when B was 2 1/2 but he does not remember, just has pictures of him with my grandpa. My grandma (on the other side of my family) passed away two years ago. She was ill for many years, in nursing care, and suffering from severe dementia. I was very sad to see her go but I was at peace that she was no longer in pain, confused, or worried. B was sad when she passed but she was already in nursing care for dementia when he was born. He never got to know her the way I did. As indicated last night this is going to be pretty rough on them, especially Wyn, who is very empathetic and old enough to really understand what is going on.

-Pray that I can help my husband, and kids through this difficult time.

Thanks everyone! You are wonderful!
