Please pray for my husband's grandmother.

I am asking for prayers for my husband's grandmother. She has been sick with cancer for months and was moved to a care center. Brian's dad called him today and told him he needed to get out there to see her because she's pretty bad and they don't know how long she's got. She's about 82 years old and my husband is dealing with it very well for the time being. He's worried about how his dad will deal with it because he does not accept that people die and is falling apart right now. Brian's step-mom is concerned about him as well because he has had 2 strokes in the past and he's not in the best of health either. Please pray for Brian's grandmother and for his entire family. Thank you.

Brian came home tonight and said that she isn't doing well. She could barely talk. I'm glad he got to see her and talk to her a little. He's feeling badly because he feels like he didn't spend enough time with her. Every time he tried to schedule a day to go and see her his dad would tell him that it wasn't a good day or that she didn't want visitors so he'd just call her on the phone. He did spend a lot of time there as a child growing up. I'm sure she knows that he loves her but, he's just sad that it's nearing the end and he didn't get to go to her house and visit her while she was still well enough to carry on a conversation. Thank you all for your prayers. Denise

Brian, (through you of course), it's only natural to feel guilty about the what ifs and I should haves..... your love for your grandmother hasn't changed, just the location of where she is. Your father was trying to shield you from what the cancer has done to your sweet grandmother. Maybe he wanted you to remember her the way you saw her as a child, a young adult, etc when she was in better health. She knows you love her, you spent time with her on the phone and talked when you did see her. Treasure your memories and celebrate them daily. There is no cure but time and that cliche sucks, I know, but it is true. Grieve when you can, and laugh when it is time. You and your family are in my prayers and thoughts.

Thank you for this. I too said the same thing to him about her knowing that he loves her and that he did spend time with her. I'm glad that his 2 grandmother's and my grandmother were able to see us get married. I know that is something that he wanted and they wanted as well. His grandmother that is sick is about 82 and his other gram is 92! My gram is 82 and lives in Florida. I don't get to see her much but, I'm glad she was able to make the trip. We found out about Brian's gram being sick not too long after our wedding. I just hope that she's not in any pain and that when she's ready to go that she will go quickly.
