Just need some Prayers
Gosh it doesn't seem like over a week since I last posted. The week before New Years my Mother-in-Law was hospitalized for pneumonia. She turned 90 in September and as you can see may weigh 100 pounds. She has COPD from being around second hand smoke most of her life so her lungs are fragile at their best. I have spent much time with her over the past week and it just breaks my heart. The medicine made her mind not work correctly, so I caught lots of bugs for her but refused to go into the corn field to help cut fodder Told her I had on good shoes. She said OK it was men's work anyway. I am not making fun of her but it is easier to laugh than cry.
Dennis would fuss at me cause I humored her, what am I supposed to do? When she would get really agitated I started reading the bible and that calmed her down. Then we would talk about the passage I read. (It was the Gideon's Bible so it was like reading something totally new.) The word of God is powerful no matter what version you read.
Tomorrow we sign paper to place her in a nursing home, I hope for just a short time. I hope she regains strength and can go back to the assisted living. I do wish I could take her her but we live in a tri level and with my arm it wouldn't work.
Pleas put her in your prayers, Dennis too this is very had on him.
