Prayer request

Sorry
My Grandma is in the hospital. She is having shortness of breathe, pneumia, and heart issues. My aunt has also convinced the doctors to give her depression meds. (Which my father who sees her almost daily doesn't think she needs) My dad is having a hard time being her advocate. My Grandma is in her upper 80s and has lived alone this whole time. She is sharp as a tac and knows what is happening. Please pray that she can return to her home and that her heart issues are nothing. She is my only living grandparent.

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
I will say a prayer that she can recover fast. I have no living grand parents...they had passed before I was born. My dad's mom passed when I was 13 and I never even knew her. Amber, I really hope she gets better soon. Please keep us posted. I am not around much these days but I am here for you...take care girl!

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
Hi there. I am thinking of your grandma. I was incredibly attached to my Pop-Pop, so I know how you feel. I hope she stays strong for many years to come. Sending you a giant hug!

Donnessa, mom to Halley born 3/10/07
Reflux (mostly) resolved at 14 months
and Addison born 8/17/09. Currently exclusively bf and on 7.5mg Prevacid
I pray that your dad will be able to be the advocate that he needs to be and that your grandma lives for many more years. My grandma will be 90 next year and still lives by herself and is as funny and sharp as ever. She had open heart surgery two years ago and recovered even faster than I would have! I hope that all goes well with yours. Keep us posted.

Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
I bet it's nice for your kids to have her! My granny died when I was 20 and I never knew the others.

I will definitely pray for them!

Thanks for the prayers. I went to see her tonight and she is doing good. She will be able to go home in a few days but she is thinking of selling her house and moving into an apartment. The big house is getting to be to much for her. They have her on breathing treatments and she was in such a good positive mood that I don't know why they think she may need depression meds. She was in such good spirits. But I guess me and my dad aren't doctors. So far she hasn't started the depresson meds so we will see. Your prayers are working. Thanks so much! I love my grandma and the kids love her to. I don't want to think about losing her.

My grandma lives in an assisted living facility apartment that has been great for her. It's just the right size for her to clean and they provide one meal per day (as well as emergency response buttons in the living room and bathroom, just in case). She loves playing cards and visiting with all her little old girlfriends - makes me laugh :-)
