Prayers Needed

Friday, January 04, 2013

I'm asking for prayers for my daughter's father-in-law (who was life-flighted to Cleveland Clinic on 1/2). He is now alert although still critical in ICU on life support. My daughter and her husband have been making the daily trip (they live 2 hr away). On the 2nd, they both missed work and spent the day at the Clinic. Yesterday, they made the trip after work. I, too, am making daily trips there as he has been a part of the family for nearly 20 years.
Another elderly family member has been in the hospital since the day before Christmas with pneumonia which progressed to pneumonia in both lungs. She had a feeding tube placed on 1/2. As of right now, she has started to respond to treatment.
Needless to say, this has interupted my blogging and going to the gym.
All I can say is I am looking forward to the year swiching back to running more smoothly.

    WOW. You certainly have been dealt a 'double whammy" especially at Christmastime.
My prayers are with you and also with your daughter's FIL and your elderly family member.

    Prayers to you, as I am in the same boat! My husband's elderly aunt came to be with us at Christmas, and has been in and out of the hospital. I have been running back and forth, hoping she gets to come home today, and then be able to fly to her home on Tuesday. I am longing for my old routine too.
