Grandma and friend's MRI
« on: January 25, 2012, 09:31:54 AM »
I have a few prayer requests for y'all...

-My good friend at school told us yesterday that her MRI had spots.  I'm not sure what that means, but I know that it isn't good.  She suffers from seizures of the worst kind, ad she's only 16.

-My grandmother had a massive stroke yesterday.  She'd been staying in a nursing home because of a stroke she had after a fall a few years ago.  It looks like she may be "going home" some time soon.

-Please pray for my dad.  It is his mother that is passing away.  I'm afraid I don't have much of a familial relationship with either of them anymore, so I'll be praying with you all.


Thank you!

Lord have mercy.

St. Pantaleimon, pray for us.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

My grandmother still hasn't woken up from her stroke at 6pm last night.  I know she appreciates your prayers.  She's my last living grandparent, it will be so sad when she passes away.  I've spoken about her on here before.  She's a very devout Catholic.  I'm sure the angels are surrounding her right now, waiting to take her to paradise.  I wish I could have even a little of her faith and devotion to Christ. 

One thing is for sure, she will be with Christ and the saints.

Grandma update:  A priest came to give my grandma her last rights last night.  I'm going to see her for the last time tonight around 7pm.  I don't even know what I'm going to say!   :'( :'( :'(

St. Bernadette Soubirous is my grandmother's patron saint.  Please pray with me for her intercessions for my grandmother.

Lord, have mercy.

My grandmother (last living grandparent as well, by many years) also suffered a massive stroke this week and is on her way to rest within the next few days. 

Continued prayers for you, your grandmother, and your family, Tikhon.

Memory Eternal!

Lord have mercy on your friend as well.
