Prayer Request

The doctors informed us yesterday that there was nothing more they could do for my mother at the hospital. So they released her to go home. Visiting nurses and hospice are our connection to the medical community now. The doctor thought we only had a couple hours but so far she has gotten her strength back a little. The cancer in her lung is NOT gone, and the tumors that spread to her brain have been somewhat controlled by the radiation… but it is her heart that’s doing her in. Her heart is simply racing most of the time… sort of burning her out. They tried the medicine that they use for that with other people, but then her heart rate started to have 20 to 30 second stops where the EKG was literally a straight line. So she’s at home, and she feels better just by being able to get some rest and by having family home. My brother lives close to her and his daughter, her boyfriend, and my brother’s granddaughter are all up from Demopolis, Alabama. My sister got in on Thursday from Montgomery, Alabama with her son. Josh and I are hanging out as much as possible… I’m taking vacation for a while in order to be with her as much as I can.

Please pray for a peaceful end and for healing and comfort in our family.

  1. Praying that God’s love and comfort will surround and sustain you. Will add you all to the prayer list at church in the morning as well.

  2. Prayers are with you. I know how hard this time is. My mother died a year and a half ago and the pain and reality leading up to her death was overwhelming at times. I hold you in prayer… may God’s grace hold you tight during this time.– Charlotte
