When It Rains It Pours

That statement is ringing very true for me right now.  There have been so many things that have been drenching me lately with hard things.  The most recent has been my Grandmother.  I received a phone call in the middle of the night on Tuesday.  (No phone calls in the middle of the night can ever be good.)  My Grandma was rushed to the ER with some really scary things going on.  After a very long day of stabilizing and running tests on her, they found out she is in the final stages of liver failure.  She has been in heart failure for a very long time and we knew it was effecting other organs.  It was just a matter of time before things were going to go down hill.  It has been a tough week with a lot of tears from the whole family.  She was able to come home on Saturday and will have care at home.  The doctors are not sure if she has days, weeks or months left.  I am just thankful for each day I get with her. 

Again, sorry I've been so silent on here lately.  I was at the hospital every chance I got last week which didn't leave a lot of time for anything else.  If you wouldn't mind saying a few prayers for our family right now, that would be wonderful.  I'm learning to try and take each day at a time.  I am hoping for many more with my Grandma.  Sorry for such a heavy post but I'm definitely feeling heavy as of late.  I will be posting later today about a more fun and uplifting thing that happened this past weekend.


  1. Oh man, I'm sorry to hear that. I'll be praying for her and comfort for your family.

  2. I'm very sorry to hear about your grandma. I hope that she is here locally so you can spend as much time with her as possible. Saying a prayer for you and your family.

  3. Thinking and praying! That is really sad, and I'm sorry!

  4. I'm so sorry to hear about your grandma and the things that have been weighing on you lately. Praying for you all. What a beautiful both look so happy beside each other. Hang in there, friend!


I'd love to hear from you!
