Just a few lines to let you that have been praying ~ Keep Praying. Mom is still holding on ~ sleeping most of the time. She has not eaten for over two weeks. Takes very little liquids. We really don't know how she is still here except for the fact that my sister will be coming in from Pennsylvania Thursday. The nurse told me that sometimes they stay alive until a certain member of family gets there. Personally, I don't know how she is still here, but the Lord does. She has a room mate that cries and hollers all the time. Her room mate has been in the hospital over a week. She got back last night which means we can't all get in the room as before. Mom open her eyes and said something. I got real close to her and she said,"I wish I could help that poor soul." She left a letter about her funeral and we read it. I had to laugh. I don't know when she wrote this but she was telling us where her money was for her funeral and her insurance policy. She then said,"If that isn't enough ~ just pass the hat." I'm home trying to get some rest. Since my brother and younger sister is here I might try to get some much needed washing done. I will just have to give the house a lick and a promise. Especially pray for the grandchildren. They haven't seen Mom in awhile and when they came it really hit them hard. Especially my two grand-daughters, Bridget and Leslie. They were pretty close to Mom. Thanks for all your prayers and comments. It means a lot to know that you are out there holding us up to God in this time of need. I love you and will be back writing more when all of this is over.
