Update

Rough several days. They are sending Granny home with hospice tomorrow. Doctor says everything is just worn out. My heart aches to see her in this condition. She says she is in no pain, but she definitely is struggling to breathe. She has slept sitting on the side of the bed with her head on a pillow on her meal tray since she arrive.d This is the only way she can breathe. Her kidneys are shutting down. She's tired. We've all had our talks with her. She is ready to go. Keep us in your prayers this week. I know that she has a grand Homecoming awaiting her. I know that joy awaits her on the other side. But my Granny has been my rock since my mother died, and I admit, I'm teetering on the edge of hysteria. I know my family is private, and they may not appreciate my posting here. I'm sorry family. These are my friends. I trust them to pray. I trust them to understand. We need their prayers. *Sad***But trusting God**

Though I don't know your family, I'm sure they wouldn't mind the post. To ask all of us to pray for her is a very good thing. I will say a prayer for her, and I'm sorry that you all are going thru this right now.

Hi Cindy--
So glad that I decided to check out your blog today! My thoughts & prayers are worth you...may God comfort you now & in time with your memories and good times as you go thru this transition with your grandma.

I'm thinking of you, and may God also give you strength and some understanding as you say good-bye now to this wonderful person in your life until you say hello once again.
