"Lord have mercy."

Never hesitate to ask for our prayers my friend. I know how much my grandmothers meant to me. They passed many years ago, but their love and encouragement enabled me to survive numerous adversities. I know your children lift her spirits, so take them by to see her as often as you can. Sometimes we fear that the elderly will be bothered by the rambunctiousness of children, but often it has a profoundly positive effect on them.

Thanks for all the prayers Smiley  My gram is now at home, and she is making more progress each day. She uses the walker if she is alone, and if someone is at the house with her she practices walking around with a cane. She is going to go out to the mall this Sunday and test out how she does there. She hopes to start using the senior citizen bus* again soon and going back out.

* Where she lives they have a program for senior citizens who don't drive, in which they will pick you up in a bus and take you to the mall or stores or the movies or wherever.

Not that I want to give you weekly updates or anything... but... my gram fell again today  Undecided  Thankfully she wasn't hurt bad, and her hip was fine. She just scraped her arm up a bit. The bad thing is, she was using her walker at the time, and she still fell. I'm afraid that this is a bad sign as far as her getting back to the active lifestyle she once lived.

She seems to be. She has been going with family to the mall once a week to walk around, and she has been practicing in her house, and she hasn't fallen since the incident I mentioned. I fear that she will never get back to where she was, but she may yet regain the ability to go out on the bus to wherever she wants.

I don't expect that anyone is still praying for my gram, but just as an update... things have not gone well. She is still living at home, but sadly we don't know for how much longer she'll be around. Her short term memory is completely gone, and she has declined in spurts in other areas as well (e.g. she can barely write anymore, even to sign her name). We have it drilled into her head that she is not allowed to take her pills on her own, and has to be given them, otherwise she'd probably overdose. Still, she is not overly depressed, and is handling the situation as best she can.

Into thy hands, O Lord, I commend the soul of thy servant, Helen, and beseech thee to grant her rest in the place of thy rest, where all the blessed Saints repose, and where the light of thy countenance shineth forever. And I beseech thee also to grant that our present lives may be godly, sober, and blameless, that, we too may be made worthy to enter into thy heavenly Kingdom with those we love but see no longer: for thou art the Resurrection, and the Life, and the Repose of thy departed servant, O Christ our God, and unto thee we ascribe glory: to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Asteriktos, I am very sorry to hear this, I am going to ask for a Panikhida on 17th of august for two persons, if you wish I will add your grandmother too, just tell me via post or PM, what was her name and surname. If she was other faith, and you think she would like to have it in her own denomination, don't worry to say, there are plenty of Churches in Warsaw.
