It seems prayer is the only way we can help now. sad.gif

Would you mind saying a prayer for my father. He is 83 fell broke his back and two ribs. He was living alone. Guess that will be no more. He says if he has to go to a home his life is over. So guess we will see what happens. I just hate to see people in pain, why do we have to go through pain.

Thanx to all of you

Rindy, I am so sorry that your dad has been injured. I will certainly pray for his quick recovery, and I want to let you know that you aren't the only one here who has aging parents. My parents are both 83. Our parents are so important to us and it is hard when the roles are reversed. If you need a sounding board, this might be an ideal place. There are many of us that are dealing with difficult decisions regarding our aging parents. We could probably all help each other with some of the choices that need to be made.

But for now, may you feel the comfort of knowing that God's love is always with you, and lots of prayers are being sent your way. Take special care of yourself during this time. You are important too!!

Rindy, I want to add my prayers for your Dad and for guidance for yourself to be able to make the right decisions...My thoughts are with you and despite of all you will have to deal with in the nearer future...don't forget to be good to yourself as well. Bluegrass Lady said this so well...you are important, too! smile.gif

Thanks again to all of you. He is still in the hospital. He is on a lot of morphine, in a lot of pain. If he does make it and comes home he will have to have a live in nurse. Just can't do the nursing home thing.

Thanks again
Rindy

Hi Rindy! Been very anxious to hear as I have been praying for you and your dad. I am sorry he is suffering so. There are some really hard decisions you are having to make now. I am sure your dad appreciates you getting him a live-in nurse as opposed to the nursing home, but you know what is the best decision for you and your father both. Keep us posted and I will continue to pray for his healing and some normalcy in your life and family as well. I know it is hard on you and your family as well. Take care! smile.gif

Welcome to the forum, celtic from cali! Glad to have you here!

I'll add an update on my aunt. She has moved into a coma, and is peaceful and in no more pain. We are so grateful to God for this. He has truly, truly provided answers to all our prayers about this. What a wonderful gift. She will go from my uncle's arms to Jesus' with no stress and pain we hope. Thank you all for your prayers! They have been answered! And I am so grateful for the kindness and support that has been shpwn to me here on this site. So thank you all.

I will miss my aunt terribly, I love her so much. But I can take comfort in God and the knowledge that she is in a better place. Someone shared this little story with me, from Randy Alcorn's book "Heaven" and I thought I would share it with ya'll, too. It gave me so much comfort!

"I'm standing on the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She's an object of beauty and strength and I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and the sky come down to mingle with each other. And then I hear someone at my side saying, "There, she's gone."
Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side. And just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of destination. Her diminished size is in me, not in her.
And just at the moment when someone at my side says,"There, she's gone," there are other eyes watching her coming, and there are other voices ready to take up the glad shout, "Here she comes!" "

How wonderful that is, to know that while we are saying goodbye, others are eagerly awaiting her coming!

Thanks again for your prayers. They have truly been a blessing.

Susie, I am very glad to hear your aunt has left her pain behind her. It is s grace.
My granny died of cancer. We've lost her in only four weeks since we got this result. She was a wonderful and shining person andt truely, I have never seen anyone before who was going his/her lasz days as she did...in undiscribable dignity.
Right when her pains reached the phase of becoming umbearable a big ulcus in her stomach opened and she fell into a coma and went peacefully and in dignity the other day.
I was so grateful and it was such a comfort for all of us that she had been allowed to go home this way.

And finally thank you so much for sharing this wonderful story...it's simply wonderful !
