An Update

Last Saturday my grandma fell and broke her pelvis in two places. Two months before this incident she fell and broke her tailbone.

I talked to her last night for 30 minutes on the phone. She cried nearly the whole time from pain and loneliness. She is either allergic or nauseated by most pain meds., so they give her what they can but it's not enough to take the pain away.

She is now on oxygen 24 hours a day. And she's weary - from pain, frustration, illness, missing my grandfather for 12 years...

She has bounced back from so much in the past several months. While bouncing back is a good thing, and obviously in God's plan for her, she's a little weaker each time. This fall in many ways is worse than the heart attack she suffered late last year. The pain is worse and prolonged.

She turns 85 on Tuesday. She loves the Lord, yet she's weary of this world. As much as I love her I'm ready to see her suffering end. But who can say what God's will is?

Thank you for your prayers and e-mails concerning this situation. My faith rests in Christ.

Much love,
Stacy

I'll keep praying for your grandmother. That kind of pain and just plain not being able to get comfortable would certainly make anyone very weary.

Pain is so mentally and physically exhausting. I will keep your grandmother and you in my prayers.

bless her heart and yours.....i know it's hard to listen and know there is nothing physically you can do to take away the pain......

Your grandmother and you and your family are in my prayers. My mother is going through some health issues as well. It is so frustrating to see our loved ones sick and/or in pain.

Blessings...

This was my grandmother a few years ago. I didn't know what else to do but pray. I don't know what else to do for your grandmother either, but I saw the power of prayer for my Nanny and I know we'll see it for your grandmother too...

I will pray for your grandmother. That is very hard and just as hard to watch someone go through so much. I hope that you are feeling well, too. I've missed my daily dose of SFL.
