Please pray for my mom...

Please pray for my mom. She has had severe rheumatoid arthritis for several years and had several surgeries for joint replacements. She is pretty much always in pain. Through it all, she is the godliest lady I know.

Last week, her hip started hurting very badly. My mom NEVER says she is in pain. Well, she said her pain was 10 on a scale of 1 to 10!! So that meant she was in BIG pain!! Turns out, she has shingles.

Last night (Wednesday night), she was getting up at 1:30 to go to the bathroom and fell. She has broken her hip and hit her head pretty badly and has stitches. She broke her hip in 3 places and they need to do surgery. They can’t do the surgery right away because she is on coumadin to thin her blood (she has blood pressure issues, too). She is in MUCH pain.

My dad has very bad health, too, and is at the hospital, worried and exhausted. Please pray for him, too.

My sweet parents are only 65 (dad) and 62 (mom).

I'll be praying for them---hopefully she'll be able to have the surgery soon and not be in so much pain, poor thing! I'll also pray for you so you won't be so worried and can still concentrate on all the things a mom and wife has to concentrate on.

Many blessings...

Oh, I will pray for your sweet folks and for you too. I will never forget the kindess of your parents. I will always admire how your father dotes over your mother. :) Sweet-sweet couple. I will pray Ephesians 3:18-20... that God will do immeasurably more than we could ever ask or imagine... Love you! Gretchen

Oh Mrs. U, I will be praying for your parents--they sound like such wonderful people!! I hope your mom is able to have her surgery so she can heal. Shingles is terribly painful from what I hear, and it takes quite some time to get over--my father had them and we found out today that my cousin's grandmother has shingles up near her throat. I will keep your parents in my prayers.

Blessings,
Paula
