dying Man’s Daily Journal – Prayers Please


I have written of my mother-in-law Nellie and her heath conditions. Things have worsened considerably. For about a month she has been in her home with family, knowing really there was nothing that could be done other than make her as comfortable as possible. Her pain levels had been increasing and on Wednesday she was taken to the hospital. She immediately had tubes and everything you can imagine running into her. Through that day and evening tests showed her kidneys were in failure and that really there was just nothing that could be done other than keep her comfortable. On Thursday morning everything was removed, all medications stopped except for pain relief. We were told a day or two and here it is day 5 and she is still hanging in there.

Vi and here sisters have be literally living at the hospital and I do mean 24 hours a day trying to nap in chairs or what ever. Last evening (Saturday) Vi left the hospital for the first time, to come home grab a shower and 5 or 6 hours sleep and right back she went. I have been spending as much time as I can there.

I ask please for prayers for a peaceful passing for Nellie and for loving support for the family
