Mother in Law

Post by tuttle » Fri Dec 21, 2018 3:07 pm

It's a sad thing to think of around this time of year, but my father in law called my wife today to tell her that hospice has been called in for her mother, who has been of poor health for many years. Over the last month or so her health has drastically declined to the point now where she is nearly immobile and she goes through some extreme bouts of confusion. She's had brain cancer in the past and likely has it now (it's unfortunately really hard to get information from the in laws).

This doesn't come as a big surprise, she has suffered for a while now, but it does make real the situation of her impending passing. She is strong in her faith in Christ even through her mental unclarity, which we are all extremely thankful for. This is hard for my wife and kids and my father in law in normal seasons of life, but especially this time of year so close to Christmas. I'd ask you pray for them all in whatever way God leads.

Sorry to learn of this, Tut. Prayers all around for your MIY and all loved ones. May her passing be gentle and peaceful, oh Lord.
