Crazd received sad news...

    Crazd writes me that she just got a call from her mom about midnight with sad news.  She had put up a couple of hubs about her Papa, aka grandpa, her mom's step-dad and how he had another stroke a few months ago.  Her mom just told her that they are at the facility where he was staying and it looks like tonight will be the night he passes on.  He is on oxygen and is resting comfortably but his eyes are fixed and he is unresponsive though he does keep raising his right hand which they don't think he is aware of, though Crazd thinks it is his way of saying good bye.

    She asks that hubbers please pray for her family and that her Papa passes peacefully in his sleep soon.

    Warm thoughts and support to our sweet girl.

    CW I lost my grandfather not to long ago too.  I know it's hard, but it is the best place for them now.  I know that being confined to a bed is the last place I'd want to be.  It's hard not to want to be selfish, but you have to think of what is best for them.

    All my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

    UPDATE:  Sorry gang, this is old news now.  Crazd contacted me at mid-day with the following update: 

    Papa made it through the night.  He was given morphine, so seemed to rest and breathe okay.  He has pneumonia.  His feeding tube has been removed.  The medical team is still saying it’s a matter of time. 

    To be clear, he is not expected to recover.  The family asks for your continued prayers that Papa passes peacefully.  Also please lend them your strength in celebrating his life through their sorrow.

    After reading your hubs about your grandfather,  it is obvious you were a blessing in his long life. Hold fast to that thought and know that he is headed to a better place.
