Needing Some Prayers .......

Sorry to ask this of all of you
Since I haven't been blogging in awhile.
But if you could just say a little 
"Prayer" for my Mom.
My Sister called me at work Saturday 
Night to tell me our Mom was on her way
To the Hospital unresponsive.
My Mom had aspirated and went
Unresponsive.
She is in ICU on Life Support.
I talked to the Dr. When I got
To the Hospital and he said she
Went 20 minutes without a heart beat
And blood pressure.
She has a lot of brain swelling,
They paralyzed her to put her on 
Life support and put in all the
Necessary tubes.
They have her on ice, covered in ice
To bring her body temperature down
She will stay like this for 24 hrs
Then they will warm her up to bring 
Her body temperature back up.
This is standard protocol.
But the end result is never good.
I asked him to give it to me
Straight.
He said your Mom is gone.
She's not breathing on her own.
The life support machine is doing the 
Breathing for her.
If she would come out of this...
She would have severe brain
Damage..
They have never seen a good
Outcome. Now she is having seizures
Repeatedly, and the 24 hrs 
Aren't up yet. The medicine they
Are giving her is not working to
Stop them. We may have to make
A decision soon, even though we know
The answer.
Trouble is.... I come from a family of 11
And some of my siblings
Can't come to terms with this....
And don't want to let her go.
Mom would not want to live like this.
My Sister and I
Are her Power  Of Health....
Lord...I need some prayers.

My heart aches for you, of course I am praying. I am praying for your Mom and for you.

Letting go is so difficult, but it is something that the family has to agree on.

Blessings & Prayers

My favorite Bible verse is "Be still and know that I am God".

Sending hugs, support and prayers your way Sandi. Things like this are never easy. Praying all your siblings will come together in these times and not think of themselves but your Mom and what she would want. Will keep you in my prayers.

I am so sorry. I will pray for you, your mom and siblings to have peace. Lived through something similar with my dad - my brother still thinks "we let him die." He had guilt from not being there for my dad. You have to do what you think your mom would want - that is probably why she made you and your sister the health care POA. Blessings to you all.

Sheila said...

Dear Sandi,
Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. Prayers for your mom as well. No words can take away the pain but hopefully knowing you have so many friends praying will comfort you in some small way.
hugs,
Sheila
