My grandmother is nearing the end of her life. She's 88 years old and in the hospital, but under hospice care. They've given her hours - days to live and she is in pain, but unable to swallow to take the pain medication she needs. She's not real responsive, has not been eating for a few days now and as of yesterday her kidneys are failing. She's in Iowa and I have reservations to go tomorrow to visit her one last time.
...that I make it before she goes.
...that I am able to comfort her in some way.
...for me as I have to fly into Chicago and then drive 3 1/2 hours to Cedar Rapids because I'm nervous about doing it alone. (This from someone who used to travel for a living!)
...for my husband who is also traveling and will get home after I've already gone tomorrow.
And... rejoice with me, because soon she will reach out and clasp the hand of Jesus and go to her heavenly home!
THANK YOU dear friends :)
Much Love and Many Blessings,
