Word has come to us that if they take "the blower" off (essentially a pressurized oxygen mask), Grandma Kitty will meet God soon after. She just is not expelling the CO2 efficiently. My mother-in-law is making arrangement to bring her home so she can at least die with some dignity and in relative comfort as opposed to lying in a hospital bed in a rather loud cardiac care ward.
Please continue to remember Catherine, her daughter Paula and her son Stanley in your prayers as they go through this very difficult time. We just lost her husband Stanley at Christmastime, so this is particularly hard as everyone is still mourning him.
Lord, have mercy on your servants!
