Thank You

Thank all of you for your prayers. My mother was released from the hospital Friday and went to a rehab facility to build up her strength before going home.

It was very bothersome seeing this 69-year-old generally very sturdy woman so frail. Given the life she's had I am very surprised she's still with us. She wanted to go directly home from the hospital but between me and my two siblings, the doctor and the social worker we convinced her that going straight home would be a serious mistake. I reminded her that being home alone and unattended was what got her in the hospital in the first place. She had been home for several days in bed and her kidneys had nearly failed. The treatment for that flooded her lungs with liquid so that had to be resolved. Also, she has some serious issues from radiation treatment for uterine cancer when she lived in the wilds of Montana.

But thank you and Praise The Lord she is still with us.

Thank God. May you all be granted wisdom and patience in dealing with her continued care. It is a strange place to be caring for aging/dying parents. As children we never imagine we'd be in this place with mom and dad.

Thank you all for your prayers and your friendship. I have no doubt that your intercession helped in quick pull back from the brink. I also thank God for the Internet to find such friends and to avail my family of your prayers.

She is very young in this day and age. May God grant her many more blessed and healthy years.
