My mother in law is in really bad shape physically. From what I see and understand she will not be here with us for much longer. Of course God can change things around and I leave it all up to Him. Please pray for all of us including my mother in law. I appreciate all responses even if not posted here.
Consider it done....in fact, "Father, right now in the Name of Jesus, we lift up SirDent and his family. We thank you in advance for your loving kindness and your tender mercies. We don't know your will or the desire of his mother-in-law, but we do know that we have authoritiy over all of the power of the enemy. We do know that by Jesus'stripes we were healed.
We therefore bind the hand of the enemy and loose the healing power of the living God. We thank you Lord that joy will abound for and through the SirDent family. We praise you for strength of heart and unity within the family.
In Jesus'Name, Amen.
please keep us updated......
Love and peace to you and yours DirDent. My thoughts are with you. I feel confident that you will cling fast to your family in this time of great sorrow. Keep well, all the best from me and my family.
Sorry I didn't see this before, Sir Dent.
You and your family and mom-in-law are in my prayers.
God is and will be with you.
When our family kneels in prayer each night we collect names of people in our lives we wish to pray for. We will include her name as well - and yours.
Sir Dent, you and your loved ones are in my prayers. May God give you peace and touch you all with His healing hands. Blessings to you and yours.
Dear Sir Dent,
I will keep your mother-in-law and family in my prayers.
my prayers are with you and your family, hope things turn out as well as possible.
Sorry to hear things are not well with your Mother-in-law. I will be thinking positive thoughts for you and your family. Your wife is lucky to have your strength at this time.
Good thoughts and best wishes!
SirDent, You and Yours are in my prayers.
Peace and Love, Mikel
Of course I will pray for her, you and your family too! Please e-mail me her name and we will add her to our prayer chain.
You are in my thoughts.
I hope your mother-in-law is comfortable; I know she is surrounded by loved ones.
Be strong for your family, and take comfort from them.
I appreciate the prayers and well wishes. She is still hanging on but it doesn't look good at the moment.
Best wishes for you and yours.
This is a trying time for all concerned and I hope you find the strength to deal with it.
I will be praying an sending postitve thoughts Sir Dent. And also *big virtual hugs* for you and your family.
Once again I express my appreciation of the prayers and well wishes. AEvans, her name is June Blair. We put her on a stronger pain med tonight. She is still hanging on at the moment.
Sorry to hear this, SirDent. You and your family are in my prayers.
We have been caring for her for just under two years now. She has been bedfast for about 4 months now. She has really gone down hill fast since her husband died almost two years ago.
My opinion is that she has grieved so much that it has accelerated her Altzheimers and Parkinsons. Of course I am not a medical doctor and know very little about these things.
I don't know much about it either, but am inclined to believe that the changes you mentioned could for sure accelerate it!
My own Mom hasn't stopped grieving over my Father, and he's been gone over 10 years. Plus, the other changes over the last few years in her living situation and environment have had a big effect on her.
I pray for the best for all of you.
I do know God honors your faithfulness in taking care of your mother-in-law.
And don't forget----He makes ALL THINGS work out for the good of those who Love Him, and I believe you Love Him, Sir Dent.
I am sorry to here that things are not doing any better for your family. My thoughts are with you and yours.
I'm sorry to hear of your ailing mom-in-law. I've prayed for her and your family and will continue to do so.
Stay strong bro.
Peace and light.
It is good to be able to post in a forum like this and feel the love that is directed toward me and my family. I truly believe my mother in law will pass in a few short days, but I have peace that comes only from God.
Dude I'm so sorry to hear about you mum in law.. hope she gets better soon. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family xx
Mamelody, I appreciate the sentiments and encouragement. Precious Pearl, you are a pearl to me here. I truly appreciate your prayers.
Hoping for the best for you and your family during your travails.
Sir Dent, I sorry to hear your mother in-law is struggling. Please accept my prayers and best wishes for her and your whole family. I pray Heavenly Father shares his blessings and comfort with you all.
Your Friend Rick.
Randy I appreciate it very much. She has lived a good long life and it will soon be time for her to move on to the next life.
Rafini, Rick and Rebecca, I appreciate the prayers. In fact, I appreciate all the well wishers and prayer warriors alike.
Father In Heaven, I come to you, asking that you show your mercy and grace to SirDent's mother-in-law and family. Please remove any pain and discomfort from her. Fill her with your comfort and peace. As SirDent and his family cares for her, give them strength and patience. Allow your spirit to give them peace and rest. Provide for them spiritual, physcial and emotional endurance. Draw them near to you and protect them under your wings. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
Wondering how are you, and your mother-in-law and family?
Thoughts and prayers for you all. Strength to you and your family Sir Dent.
I am sorry to hear about your mother-in-law! You and your family will be in my thought!
She is still hanging on and actually seems a little better at times. I do appreciate the prayers and well wishes very much. It touches my heart. Thank you everyone.
Thank you for the update, I check back here from time to time to see how you are doing.
You're in my thoughts
Hospice sends someone out every week day and we get about an hour break from caring for her. I am sure my mind would be almost gone by now if not for their help.
Jen I am glad you check back here from time to time. Makes me feel good.
I am sorry to hear but my prayers are with you. I agreed in prayer the prayer posted up the page. I know Hospice is a big help. There may be other sources I will search the net and post here. I read before of help for the helper or some such, looking now.
Turns out help for helpers isn't what I thought it was. I have found this company in West Virginia that may be able to help, though I do not know what part you are in. Also, when I took care of my Grandfather, i found out I could have called human services for additional home help. You can sometimes get additional help by calling United Way, they have referal services for people looking for help. Have posted link to this company in your area. They are flexible, offering "Respite Services for the Caregiver" in home, not a nursing home. No requirement for full time and all of that.
Thanks for the link. We are using Dignity Hospice and we can get respite care when we need it. We could also have her put in a home for a week at a time if we need it. For now we are going to kepe her her at home.
The hospice workers are great. They help us not only by coming here to help but they help us with medicines and advice.
Yes, but too often we say, no I am fine when someone offers help. I will not bore you with details, and it is ill time for the religious joke about God sending help that was refused by the drowning man.
We know our parents took care of us and we love them so it is our duty, but sometimes when people from the neighborhood, or church or other's offer, we should take it as a gift from God who has heard our tears shed in silence and sent a second pair of hands to help with the load. .. Just as the man who helped Jesus up when he buckled under the weight of the cross. Jesus did not say, "No, I'm fine, I've got it." he let the man help.
I found with my father's illness that hospice offered comfort and care that he was not getting in the hospital. We were able to be more involved, and I was grateful for the volunteers.
Hospice helpers should be treasured.
Hang in there SirDent.
I agree, hospice came to help us when I was caring for a friend of mine. But I am trying to find another organization that also cam, it was a group run by a church and they would come at a different hour from hospice and it was volunteers. One was a Haitian Minister, he was so funny and would tell my friend stories of his youth in Haiti. I can't find them for sir dent and wonder if it was just local church program.
My friend was able to rcover and lived an extra 18 months after.
We love the workers who come out to help us. One in partticular seems to go above and beyond what she is required to do. I can tell by her spirit that she is a genuinely nice person.
I found it, it was a Salvation Army section that helps. They are wonderful. Sometimes it is good for the family to have someone who comes in sort of companion style. They would come to see Gary three times a week, and I really think it was these visits that gave him the fight to go on.
My mother in law gets worse every day. She is dyi9ng and I think she knows it also. One good thing is that even in death, she still praises Jesus. She knows where she is going and that matters more than anything. Death is not the end but simply a change of address.
Truer words never spoken, SirDent. I know how hard it is, but you know this life is just school, the one to come is when living begins. Hold together. Thanks for letting us know.
Still thinking of you and family; God bless you all.
Thank-you for the update. I was wondering about you and your family. A long life lived well is a comfort at the end. She is surrounded by people who love her and whose lives she has touched. I hope she finds some measure of comfort in knowing this.
Her heart rate has been fluctuating a lot the last day or so. Also her blood pressure has gotten very low at certain times. Breathing is shallow and very short.
Have you ever looked up the meaning of the name Joshua. Prayer is more effective when we call the Messiah by his correct name. Or at least not call him some other name. Clue There is no J or sound like J in Hebrew or Aramaic. Joshua would be Yahshuah in Hebrew. I will pray about your situation now in his real name bless you.
Seeing as how I am not a Hebrew, and the fact that there was no J sound nor the letter J when King James had the bible translated, I still only speak my own language.
His sheep hear His voice, no matter if their dialect or language may be less than perfect.
Sir Dent, i do not know you well. i say this:
a) there is no shadow or gray area in Life.
b) there is no holding on for dear Life.
c) Grace is without measure, so you have INFINITE Grace around you and your family, should you accept that Grace in its fullness.
Enough with the 'i hope the best for you' or 'will keep you in my prayers'. These are words of comfort? no, these are the words of conformity.
YOU Sir, ARE are child of the MOST HIGH. You sir have the power of life and death on your tongue. If you choose life, then speak life upon yourself and your loved ones.
Do not let false prophets steal the joy of Life from you or your family. They are thieves, seeking to devour all things of light, for darkness is within them. For death has NO POWER over you. The Law of sin fulfilled. You are under Grace.
In this, my friend, you know is truth, that the SAME Spirit that raised Y`shua from death lives IN YOU. Let that be the only Voice you hear!
Let that Voice be as living water, a deafening voice, so that no other is heard. Let He who lives in you give you power to do the will of the Father.
And may any and every tongue that speaks otherwise against the Spirit of the Most High, be silent.
In the name of the One who is above all names. Amen.
Sir Dent I have started to post here to you on numerous ocasions but could not find the words to express.
Twenty one days.. thank you for expressing something close to what I would have wanted to say.
Sir Dent. I do not have to pray for you to have the strenth to endure for you already have it.
I feel that She is ready to go home and she will when she feels that her loved ones are ready for her to.
All I can realy say is ... Love one another and support each other. It is a blessing to have the chance to say all the things that you all need to say to her; for your benefit and hers before she passes over.
May the pease of God be with you all.
My mother in law has gotten worse throughout the day. BP has been very low all day and now I can't even get a reading. Heart rate has been up around 120 all day.
Once again I appreciate the prayers and well wishes that have been presented on her behalf and mine.
SirDent I am so sorry. When my mother was near the end a friend told me to call my brother and have him light a candle to light her way. Three days went by as she struggled for breath and he did not light the candle due to the oxygen machines in her room. Finally the third day he opened the window and lit a candle on the sill. He wrote that she opened here eyes and smiled and then went to sleep. In moments she was at rest. My heart and prayers are with you. I know your agony, but you will see her again and hopefully I will meet you and introduce her to my mother.
Hi Sir Dent, I have said prayers for her as well as you and the rest of your family. And I wish your mother in law the peace that she seeks.
Sir Dent, I'm two weeks late but, I pray that God will fix the problem what ever it is, and I say a special pray fro the family. Godspeed. creativeone59
She just passed away about a half hour ago. I appreciate the prayers and I also know that she is in the arms of the Lord Jesus at this time.
Hi Sir Dent, your mother in law is in God's embrace, I wish you and your family much comfort in her absence.
My best regards to you and your family, I hope the grieving is filled with love. My deepest felt condolences to you and your loved ones.
Once again I want to express my gratitude for those who have prayed and continue to pray and send their well wishes.
Everything is going about as well and can be expected. Our hearts are broken, but the Lord will heal them.
