Urgent Prayer Request


Yesterday I spent most of the day with my Mom in the emergency
room of St. Luke's Hospital.  After many tests, the doctors have 
determined that she has congestive heart failure.  The prognosis is
not very good.

My Daddy died a bit less than two years ago.  I'm hoping that I can
have a few more years to spend with my Mom.  I am her only child and we
are very close.  She took such wonderful care of Daddy while he suffered
for several years from Alzheimer's.  It's now my turn to take good care
of her.

I believe that when two or more come together in prayer, the best 
outcome will happen.   I am asking for your prayers so Mom and I 
can have a few more quality years together.  Thank you.

Big Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  1. Susan, I'm sorry to hear this about your dear mother and yes, I'll be praying for her and for you. I'm an only child like you and i too lost my daddy in 1997 and brought my mother here to live with us. She's in a retirement home now and she is my best friend too. My heart breaks for you, sweet friend.
    Blessings,
    Shelia ;)

  9. I believe wholeheartedly in the God Who hears and answers prayer. I pray that we daughters would unselfishly ask, "Not our will, Lord, but Thy will be done."

    Praying for you and Mom. You're a good daughter.

  12. Prayers and Healing Energy for your Mom, ((Susan))
    try yo think positive and surround her in a white healing light. Thats what I am doing from afar. I am certain you will have many more years with her.
    Its my EXPERIENCED opinion that she should have NO DAIRY PRODUCTS beginning Immediatly. That will increase her ability to heal 1 million fold.. Please- No Dairy of any kind in her system.
    write me if you want to.

  16. Susan, I replied in the email (newsletter). I'm unsure if it will show here, where you can read it now. Please know though that I am lifting you up to our precious heavenly Father. He knows all. Our burdened hearts are his concern. Rest on his word and know that many are surrounding you with love from afar. God bless.

  23. Yes, Susan, I will pray for your mother. I pray that God will grant you those years together and that your mother begins to feel better.

  24. I will pray for your mom and you. I know this is a tough time for both of you. My dad was diagnosed with CHF and lived quite a few years (maybe 10?) with it. The cardiologist told me at that time that "you can live a long time with CHF." It does eventually zap their strength but I did have lots of good years with him before that happened. I hope that will be your situation, too. Doctors always give a "worse case scenario," I'm not sure if it's a legal issue or a "I don't want to get your hopes up and then it not work out ..." but that's been my experience of many years caring for my dad and then my mom. I hope something in this helps comfort and encourage you. Hugs ~ Mary

  30. Prayers flowing from West MI. We lost my mother-in-law to congestive heart failure right before Christmas. Thinking of you and sending you lots of hugs.

  31. Susan you got my prayers. CHF can be treated medically for quite a while. I pray relief for her heart. Also strength for you. Olive

  32. You are in my thoughts and prayers. My mother died a month ago from Alzheimer's after a 5 year struggle. My 90 year old father has congestive heart failure also. He has had it for several years now. I'm sure your dr has advised you, but this is how we moniter dad. He weighs every morning. Any 3/5 lbs difference, we call the dr. (that means he is retaining water and more than likely around the heart.) They can adjust lasix (sp?) accordingly. Listen to her breathing and if normal small tasks or walking short distances makes her out of breath, more than ususal, call the dr. They can monitor this and they can live long lives with this. If you watch these couple of things it can stay really manageable. Stay strong and I will keep you in my prayers

  34. I am praying! I was at the hospital with my mother and grandmother today, too, because they have a very virulent GI infection, and both are dehydrated. I am home tonight, and I will go back in the morning. I will pray for you, too. (I am an only child, too)...

  36. You and your mom are in my thoughts and prayers. My dad was diagnosed with congestive heart failure several years ago. He takes his medicine and is checked regularly by his doctor. He still prefers to mow his own lawn(riding mower) and a few weeks ago was trimming branches from the pear tree with a pole trimmer. He is 82.
