DESPERATE PRAYER REQUEST


Sunday, November 04, 2012

PRAYER REQUEST

I have two brothers left. We were 7 siblings and all the youngest are gone, the three oldest remain of which I am the oldest.
Some time ago the doctor found a mass on my brother's pancreas but his wife has alzheimers and he took care of her instead of himself. He tried to put her in a nursing home but they had no lock up for the Alzheimer's patients so she fought them to get out and hurt them and herself also. They kept her less than a day. In the town they live in they do not have a nursing home with an alzheimers unit. They live in California.

He got down to 137 at almost 6 foot tall. One day her caregiver which came in only to take her vitals, etc. noticed he wasn't well and got him to the hospital fast. He was in the hospital 5 days and they did an MRI. They found two tumors on his lungs and he can hardly breathe. He has copd. Now he weighs 118 and said looks like one of the starving people of Africa. When I called last night he said he was better but his wife worse. He said she doesn't realize he could go at any time.
He is 1 1/2 years younger than I.
It is such a desperate situation since he has to care for her and I know how that is. They have no children just as I have no children

He is on oxygen of course.

Anyone who prays please pray for him.

  Oh that is something to be concerned about.

Where we live there is the Council on Aging. There are various senior places that will tell you for free what services are available. Also Love In the Name through World Vision knows of local helps.

I will pray for your situation. emoticon

    Prayers for your brother. My brother weighed 80 lbs. at 6 ft when he passed away 3 years ago, it's terrible to see our loved ones like this. I am afraid with the new healthcare more of us will be taking care of loved ones. So sad for your brother, his wife, and you.

    I am praying for your brother, Irene! I pray that God will also comfort you as I know it is difficult for you to hear of his condition and that of his wife. But God is able to touch him and make him whole as well as his wife.

Father, I bring Irene's brother before you tonight! I ask You, Father, to touch His body with Your healing power and cause those tumors to shrivel up and die at the roots and be gone, In Jesus' Name! Father, I ask that You would also restore his wife to good health. You are the giver of life; the Healer and I know You took stripes upon Your back, Lord Jesus, that Irene's brother and sister-in-law might have healing in their bodies. So, I pray that You will do that, Father. I pray also for Irene that You would comfort her and grant her peace in her heart knowing that You are working in their lives. Thank You, Father. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
