Heavy Heart

Today I am praying hard for my Grandpa and Grandma.

Yesterday morning my grandpa had a heart attack and was full of pneumonia.  This all happened after they discovered that he had a bowel obstruction so he went in for surgery on that.  This caused his body (kidney) to stop working as it had so he needed to start dialysis but they didn't think his body could handle it. Overall - he has been through a lot in the past two weeks.  They were originally going to stop all treatments and put him in hospice after the heart attack but now they are continuing treatment but he would still be on DNR (do not resuscitate). They aren't sure what will happen next.

I am extremely lucky to have all my Grandparents still.  It is such a treasure.  My husband has none left so I am grateful.  It is hard when they get sick.  Who I worry most about is my Grandmother.  I pray she is strong enough to be there for him and that she has enough support.


  1. So sorry to hear about your grandfather. It is really hard when they get sick. I have all my grandparents but one. My grammy passed away, last year of a heart attack. It was really hard losing her and I miss her everyday. I found your blog through "The Anderson Crew". I will be praying for your grandfather and the family.

    1. Thanks - he is still hanging in there. It's just hard to see him sick.
