I need support and prayers

  1. Hi folks. I'm pretty green to this kind of thing so please bear with me. My mom is in the hospital,and it has been an exhauting ordeal. She is my best friend and without question the best thing in my life.She was admitted to St.Charles Hospital in Oregon,Ohio with acute respiratory failure. She was placed on a vent for 3 days. I felt as if my whole world was caving in. She was in ICU for 8 days. Now she's battling confusion the likes of which I have never seen before. She knows me and my dad thank God,but she's acting and talking totally inappropriately sometimes. She is 75,but before this happened she was razor sharp. I WANT HER BACK SO MUCH. Every night the staff at the Transitional Care Unit calls me with the latest disaster report. On top of all this I'm trying to keep the household going and attend LPN school. I'm starting my last level in about a week. I don't want to put my mom in long-term care. I MADE A PROMISE. OH GOD THIS HURTS SO MUCH I FEEL LIKE I CAN HARDLY BREATHE. She's my mom. I love her so much. Before this happened my mom was fiercely independent. Please send your prayers for her and for me too. I honestly don't know how much longer I can hold on. Write me soon. Thanks. Warrior Woman

    I'm sorry to hear about your Mother's declining health. My family and I will certainly pray for you and your mother, and I hope the Lord will help you on the tough decisions that you have to make. Take care, and feel free to get in touch if I can be of help. PEACE. Darby
