For my aunt
« on: July 06, 2014, 03:26:16 AM »
My aunt is in the ICU for a failing liver.  Prayers are much appreciated.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Glory to God for all things.

My parents were able to see my aunt (she is my dad's younger sister, about early- to mid-fifties) the day before yesterday.  Apparently, she was pretty non-responsive and wouldn't look at people if they talked to her.  But when my dad came in and told her that it was him, she looked for him and whispered that she wanted to be helped up in bed.  My dad talked to her about Christ and asked if she wanted to have Him as her Lord.  She said yes.

She was intubated yesterday, her skin is very yellow, and she is mostly unresponsive at this point, but not in a coma.

Prognosis is bad without a liver transplant.  Given her past history of drinking and smoking a lot, chances of that are extremely low.

Thank you for your prayers.

Update, she's on life support.  Her son (my cousin Nelson, we pretty much grew up together) will have to decide whether to continue life support or not.

Lord Jesus Christ, through the prayers of your most pure Mother with all the saints, have mercy.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Lord, have mercy on hecma925 and Nelson.
Have mercy on Myrna. May her passage from this life be peaceful, without suffering. May she have a good account before the awesome judgment seat of Christ.

Hear us, Almighty and most merciful God and Saviour; extend thy accustomed goodness to this thy servant Myna who is grieved with sickness. Sanctify, we beseech thee, this thy fatherly correction to her; that the sense of her weakness may add strength to her faith, and seriousness to her repentance: That, if it shall be thy good pleasure to restore her to her former health, she may lead the residue of her life in thy fear, and to thy glory: or else, give her grace so to take thy visitation, that, after this painful life ended, she may dwell with thee in life everlasting; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Yes, truly Glory to God!  Will be in prayer for your aunt and your family.
