I'm not ready to say good-bye

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

You heard me I'm not ready to say good-bye yet. My sister Connie, two years younger than I am )55) has always had a slew of medical problems. She's diabetic, over weight, has COPD and a slew of other stuff.

I visited her in August this year in AL. Such a long trip for me to take, it's over 12 hours from where I live. I could tell then she wasn't in good health. She kept falling asleep on us, had to have help getting up and down, moaned at every step she took. I begged her to go to the doctor, she didn't.

Thursday she fell and hit her head. Her sugar was almost 500. She went to Florence Hospital in AL. She was placed in ICU. Within one day she was placed down in a regular floor. Now she's back in ICU fighting for her life. She was placed on a ventilator yesterday (10/23/17). They told her husband Bobby, there was nothing else they can do. Her kidneys have now shut down. They can't put a port in her because she weights too much (around 500). It's a whirlwind effect that has my mind and heart broken in tiny pieces and so many unanswered questions. The biggest "Would she be okay right now had she taken care of herself?" God only knows the answer to that, but if anything this is making me more determined to do something about myself.

So my SP buddies, I'm asking for prayer for my family. I'm not ready to say good-bye and I know there can be a miracle take place. I know God hears our prayers, but it's all in his hands....

Love & hugs,, Donna
