Prayers needed

Hi everyone, I am not doing so good today. My grandpa in St. Louis has been sick for over a week now and suddenly his health has taken a turn for the worst. He has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He is not at an early stage from what I was told either. I am told at his age(78) his chances of survival are slim to none. This is all so sudden for me I still feel numb to the whole thing. I drove there to see him Friday night and he does not look good at all, however he is in good spirits and he is positive that he will make it through. (He is a tough ole coot, ya know) My gram has always been there for me and I feel awful that I am not there for him. I had to come back home today to make it to work on Monday. So please keep me and my gram in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you,

Carmel I'm sorry! I will definitely be praying for your granpda! I know how hard it is. My mom was diagnosed with lymphoma in June and she had a tumor that wrapped around her spine. She was just told last week that the tumor is gone, so Thank God! I will definitely believe for your grandpa to be healed! You know I'm here anytime you need me!

I'd repeat everything I told you before, but you know it.

So I'll just send more hugs No such thing as too many of those, right??

Aww Carmel hon I wish I had something I could say to make it easier. I just hope you know that you have friends here to talk to, and even considering the difficulty of the circumstances, you are lucky to have been given the opportunity to be there with him this weekend. The TLC a family can provide is the most important thing in the world.

You and your family will be in my prayers Take it day by day and try not to waste time worrying, just make the most of the good things

Thank you so much everyone. Knowing that I am in your thoughts and my gram is in your prayers means a great deal to me. I am getting daily updates on his condition from my cousin. I will try to drive back this weekend to see him.
