57/365 Asking 4 Prayers

Thursday, February 28, 2013

We had to take Grumpy (my father) to the ER 2day. It was a very different experience then back home. Hubby goes to the hosp and deals with all grumpys issue he is his POA. Well here he couldnt ride in the ambulance to the hosp with him; so he ride the bicycle the 4 plus miles. Then when u 1st go 2 the er they put u in a green room and noone is allowed back there with you; even though grumpy couldnt answer any question or do his own intake. Once he go to a blue room then the let hubby go 2 the room w him. As soon as my hubby was allowed back several different nurses @ different times approached him r u Andy; he said YES n they were relieved. When they were asking grumpy question his response was either I don't know or Andy will tell u when he gets here.

They have done several test and more need to be done they admitted him. I have talked to a few they said he had rapid fire mini strokes. Then the other dr says that he hasnt had an actual stroke in years but that his dementia has progressed ( a yr or so back we were told he was border line dementia).

They are keep him in the hosp for more test to see if there is anything they can do to help him. They asked me if I wanted to place him I told them NO ( he wouldnt survive that); I informed them that I was trying to get him into a day program and an aid. The social worker will b getting in touch with me about moving 4ward.
We r already going thru issues trying 2 get him medicaid. They want 2 penalize us 15 mths cause they think we lied about how much we were paid 4 the house. We trying to explain that we would have lost the house n got nada if we didnt take the deal that we took.

so this is y I m asking 4 prayers 4 grumpys health & 4 me patience in dealing w ppl as I try 2 get him the needed help
thank you

    What challenges you are clearly facing, but God is with you in this struggle and HE IS ALWAYS VICTORIOUS! I pray that you will find peace during this difficult time, that all your needs and the needs of your father will be met both physically and emotionally. Most of all, I pray for a hedge of protection around you that the Evil One may not steal your joy nor disrupt your faith in the One who holds us all and loves us eternally!
    Please keep us posted on your dad's progress, and know that you are being lifted in prayer.

    I am so sorry for your Dad's health issues getting worse. And to be getting hit from both sides, the housing market followed now by your state Medicaid. Keep your spirits up, don't give up and remember your own health while all this goes on.

    Hugs to you,

    Father God, I just want to take this time to lift this family up to you. Lord, remind them that you will never leave them, nor forsake them. Give them your peace that passes all understanding. Father, they are asking that the paper work get streamlined, but we know that it will get done exactly when you have planned for it to be processed. Help to remind us all that you are our Great Provider, Lord. You don't promise to provide our yearly, monthly, or, even, weekly bread but our daily bread. Please, surround this family with other Christians who can strengthen and encourage them during this time. You work all things for the good of those who love you, and we love you. Help us all to lean into you during those times that become impossible for us to handle. In Jesus' mighty name, AMEN!!

    I'm sorry to hear of the difficulties you are having with your father and with social services. The last part I'm very familiar with in having my own difficulties with them myself. I wish you the best as you are dealing with both. My prayers are lifted for you, your husband, and your father. I sincerely hope that you get the help that is needed. Hugs to you!
