PostSubject: My grandma is in the hospital   Thu Dec 10, 2009 10:50 pm

She's 99 years old... she's not doing too well. Asking for a few prayers. Grandma feels like she's going soon. Blue Her heart is not too well, she also has shortness of breath, gallstones, arthritis, she says her whole body hurts. Sometimes I wish it would be better for her to rest from all that pain even though that means she will not be with us. She's had a pretty rough year.

Hug her while you can. Grandma's are a gift. I will keep her in prayer, hope she will at least be comfortable and enjoy your visits.

Thank you everyone so much. grouphug

I was with her yesterday in the hospital. She's not talking so much anymore, she tells me she feels really tired. She is able to recognize everyone that goes to see her and amazingly remembers a lot of things from her youth. Yesterday she was telling me how she used to ride horses in El Salvador.

She told my cousin the other day that she wished she could fall asleep and not wake up. Then yesterday she tells my mom "That man tells me with his face that it's time"

She is going under Hospice care starting tomorrow.

Aw, she sounds like she really is ready. I know it's still hard for you though. I'm glad she'll be under the Hospice care now...my mother in law had ovarian cancer and we had Hospice come in at the end. They were wonderful.

I'm praying for her and for you Carol.

Yeah, about 10 minutes away. As far as grandparents go... she's the one I've been closest to. My other grandmother lives in El Salvador so I don't know her as much as I do my grandma Ophelia. This is a pic of her, my grandpa, my brother and I in our house in El Salvador. So, as you can see, I've known her forever... My cousin and I had just arrived home from school.



She loved the chickens... and she loved it when I found movies for her to watch that had great country scenery that showed the animals and chickens... lol If the movie was in English I'd be there interpreting for her and telling her what was happening. One time I put on this Little House episode for her... (one of my favorites) Days of Sunshine, Days of Shadow ( ). She loved it; towards the beginning you see Laura feeding the chickens... Laughing so that caught her attention and was hooked for the rest of the episode lol

Yeah, we hear good things about Hospice, it's comforting to know that we'll try our best to make her feel as comfortable as we can.

Thanks again everyone loveheart

What a lovely picture! yes I'm sure you have such fond memories of her. That is so cute that she could 'relate' with Laura because of the chickens. It looks like that chicken is just lying calmly in her arms! She obviously had a way with them!

And Carol, I know I've told you this before, but you were just so darn cute!! I just want to pinch those cheeks! grinsmiley
