I was hoping you could keep my FI’s family in your thoughts tonight. I just heard his grandma has taken a turn for the worst and that we should go visit her tonight. She has been in the hospital for three weeks and slowly has gotten worse and worse.
She is 95, and with her health really failing in the past year or so, she has told us for a while that she is ready to go. She is the most amazing lady… she ate an ice cream cone every night before bed almost all her life, and could beat me in Scrabble up until a couple months ago. She never complains, even as her energy levels have dropped, her appetite has dwindled, and her mobility has gone to almost nothing.
My Fiance and I live about an hour away and it is just my Future In-Laws who are around to care for her. They have spent at least an hour or two with her every day for the past couple years, and since she has been in the hospital they spend every evening with her. We go up as often as we can, but it is nothing compared with the time my Future In-Laws have spent with her. They are such an amazing example of love and selflessness.
I would really appreciate if you could say a prayer or think a good thought for her and the family tonight, especially my Future In-Laws. Thank you.
