update on my son-in-law's father

Monday, July 01, 2013

Thank you all for your kind thoughts, positive energy, and prayers.

The Lord is being kind to my son-in-law's father as he passes away. He doesn't seem to be in any pain, is still in a coma, and is slipping away.

His wife is not doing well with his passing. She is devastated. My son-in-law and daughter are staying strong for her.

The doctors plan to remove life support in less than 24 hours because the damage to his body is too much to reverse now. I see this as a mercy, but the family is struggling because they do not want to have to sign the papers or whatever must be done, and to see the life support removed from him.

Please, again, pray for God's will to be done, and that the family will be at peace as they make decisions in the hospital, during his passing, and afterward.

Thank you so much.

    I worked many years as a chaplain. It is always hard to sign those papers. There is always hope....not for a recovery but for a peaceful dying and a passing over into the arms of a loving God. My prayers continue for all involved. Peace! June emoticon
