Needing prayer's right now

Dec 25, 2015 5:42 PM

Today was a blessing to still have my Aunt with us on Christmas, but now she is barley breathing and we can use all of the prayers we can get right now, I called and talked to Hospice and the on call nurse is on his way to do an assessment on my Aunt. I listed to her heart and it slowed way up from yesterday, I have to learn how to count resperations. I hope everyone is having a Blessed and pain free Christmas. Much love to all my pain family.😘💕

Prayers going for your Aunt, you and your family Moparmom. Hugs of strength

I'll be praying for you and for your aunt all is well.

They told me to call in the family if things don't get any better but she has started the swelling and her feet have started to turn cold. She was also partially impacted and he got what he could out, he said he didn't like the 15 second delay on her breathing. So the next couple of days will tell us if she is going to be able to pull out of it, but he said he was not so sure.

MoparMom I know you are doing the best that you can, please don't forget to take care of you. Counting respitory is easy count for a minute then multiply by it will give you how many breaths she is taking. Sending you prayers and hugs your way.

Multiply by 2.

Moparmom, my prayers are going up for you, your aunt, & all the family. May her passing be peaceful, and your comfort be great! (((Hugs))) My heart aches for you, but you are strong and you'll get through this. 🙂🙏🌼

Sending hugs and good thoughts your way!

Moparmom, my heart goes out to you and your family. I pray that your Aunt passed peacefully into God's hands with no pain or breathing issues. You have given your Aunt the ultimate gift of your love and caregiving and she knows that you have her best interest in your heart and she loves you as well. Sending you lots of love, my hand to hold, gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that you and your family can find peace in your hearts during this difficult time. Flappsy is right, you're strong and will get through this. We will all be here to help you do it. 💕🙏🏻🌻

Moparmom, you are doing all that you can by making your Aunt comfortable. Prayers of strength and comfort for each of you, most especially your Aunt. Hugs of support.

If our rain does not let up, we are going to have more of the lake in our yard. It's been storming for 3 days straight and supposed to get it tomorrow as well, it's been raining all day here, I am calling the Hospice office tomorrow and going to move my Aunt to respite so if we have to evacuate, she will already be in a safe place. Aunt is nearing the end now and it won't be much longer. I took myself to my actual bed last night because my back and head couldn't handle the couch anymore. Still praying for Jenna, I haven't forgotten her. I just wish the storms and rain would stop. Our dock is under water and so is part of our yard. Praying that everyone has a pain free night. 🙏😘

Dec 27, 2015 8:25 PM

Moparmom, I'm also praying for you and your Aunt. I'm sorry you're going through so much. May your Aunts passing be peaceful and while she sleeps, so there is no pain. God Bless

Dec 27, 2015 8:30 PM

Moparmom, I've been keeping you all in my prayers. I saw the news with the injuries, damages, floods, & deaths, and I wanted to cry. Praying for all the states affected. (((Hugs))) & prayers for strength & courage! 🙂🙏🌼

Dec 28, 2015 10:33 AM

Moparmom, you are in my heart, thoughts and prayers. I am sorry that you are having such difficulty. I can't imagine having to evacuate in the middle of everything that you're going through. I'm sorry that your Aunt is coming so very close to the end (it's so sadly not fair to her that she is lingering between two worlds). I pray that in God's mercy, he helps her to drift off to sleep and he brings her home to his Heavenly Kingdom. I pray that Gos helps you to find peace in your heart and soul and gives you the reassurance you need to know that you have done everything you can for your Aunt and that even where she is right now, she knows you're with her and she loves you. I'm sorry if I'm not helping and I pray you don't take offense to what I said. It's meant with only love and compassion. Sending you love, gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that you don't have to evacuate and that you have a more peaceful and less painful week ahead.💕🙏🏻🌻

Alwayz, I don't take offense to that, honestly I have been praying that she goes soon. I even talked with her last night and told her it was okay to give up. I have things set in motion for her to go to respite today, the lake is 4 feet in our back yard and the storms are not over yet.the nurse put her down as imminent today officially. So it's just a matter of time. I am praying for her sake and the sake of my kids mental health that she passes while in respite. My son doesn't want to be there when she passes because he can't handle it, he is 15 and has been through more than a 15 year old should have and my daughter won't sleep in her room until my Aunt is gone and it's not good for her. I hope that I don't sound awful for praying for that, but I can't stand to see her like that anymore.

Dec 28, 2015 2:28 PM

Oh Sweetie, you don't sound aweful at all. You're looking out for everyone's well being. It's totally understandable. I can't imagine your Son or your Daughter want to be there when your Aunt crosses over. Perhaps she heard your prayers and heard you tell her that it's ok to stop fighting and take God's hand.
I can't imagine being in your position with the lake coming up 4 feet into your yard and still having storms. I pray that God keeps you and your family and your home safe from danger and damage. You're in my thoughts and prayers. {{Hugs}}💕🙏🏻🌻

MoparMom please don't feel guilty for feeling that way. Your Aunt knows everything that you are telling her ,and she loves you. You have done everything humanly possible to help her. When my Mother was lingering, my daughter couldn't stand to see her like she was they were always so close. I had her call Mom and I held the receiver for her to talk to her and tell her she loved her, my oldest daughter was stationed in Germany and couldn't get here so she talked to Mother over the phone. Then I talked to her and told her it was ok for her to let go that we would all be ok . Two day's later my husband and my brother spent the night with her so my sister and I could go home after 7 days of never leaving the hospital. The next morning we got to the hospital my brother and husband weren't gone home 30 min when she let go and went to heaven.

Mopar, I have a suggestion and it might not work. I'm not sure if it's you or New that likes Casting Crowns, but try playing "Just be held." And just let her know that it's okay to release. She needs to go home.

Dec 28, 2015 4:06 PM

Mompar, you're being strong as a mom for your children. Staying strong for your Aunt and trying to keep everything together. There is no reason at all for you to feel guilty. Gentle but string hugs for you.

Dec 28, 2015 5:20 PM

Amanda, I am the one that love's casting crowns. I never thought about doing that. I had played the song for her when she was still able to understand thing's and have her Witt's about her, I have to go back to respite care facility tomorrow as I was so tired I forgot to grab her clothes and I will do that then. Thank You!

Dec 28, 2015 5:26 PM

Mopar, try it again. Even though it might not seem like she is aware of what's going on, people who are in the process of dying usually understand in some way what is going on. Also, if you can, try "Praise you in this storm." I don't know why that just popped in my head but it might be worth a shot. One more thing, they have two new CDs that just came out. One is a live version, the other is hymns that was released back in June.

Dec 28, 2015 6:17 PM

Moparmom, I I've the song that says, "In the arms of the angel" by Sarah McLachlan. It came out in 1999 when my mom died. You're doing your best to protect your children from PTSD, watching your aunt pass away. My daughter's list 3 grandparents back to back, and to this day funerals traumatize them. They won't visit anyone on their deathbed. You're not wearing for wanting to spare your children, not for wanting your aunt to be at peace. You are all still in my prayers. (((Hugs))) 😷🙏🌼
