Prayers?

I don't usually do this sort of thing and I feel pretty silly asking from strangers.

Just found out my DH's grandmother had a massive stroke this morning, my MIL and her brother have to make the decision weather to keep her on a feeding tube, or let her go. Grandmother in law and her son are both in Kentucky, my MIL and of course DH are here in MN. My husband may leave with his Mom tomorrow to drive her down to Paducah and help her out.

This is another very difficult loss for us in a string of many. We are just recovering from the loss of my husband's Dad, sister (my best friend) and other Grandmother all within 4 months of 2003. The man is a rock, I don't know how he manages to breathe in and out with a smile on his face every day. Please keep him and his family in your Prayers?
Thank you
Suzi

I'm praying for all of you. Please never ever hesitate to ask for prayers. It got me through quite a few times myself.

Thanks everyone. I just hope she's not hurting at all. She's a tough one but I'd hate to think she's in pain.

Oh, suzi. You definitely have my prayers.

Do you know if she's in Lourdes or Western Baptist Hospital? I'm VERY familiar with Paducah. It's a good city and I hope your husband and his mother have a place to stay. You'll all be close in my thoughts.

Thanks Katie, I'm not sure. I've only been there once, all I remember is we stayed in a Ramada Suites close to the first Super WalMart I ever saw!!! :) And we waited about 2 hours for a table at Outback... DH and I were drunk by the time we sat down and couldn't eat!!! That was almost 10 years ago.
Thanks again, that memory just made me smile. That was the last road trip DH and I took (to see Grandma) before we had kids.
