Prayer request for my mother

21 May

Here is a personal request going out to those who read my blog. My sister called me this morning with some awful news. Our mother collapsed and fell unconscious in her home sometime last night. She was discovered shortly after by a family friend, who called 911. She was taken to the local hospital in Ohio where they diagnosed her with pneumonia. She has since been life-flighted to a wonderful hospital in Cincinnati where they are treating her for among other things blood in her lungs. My mother’s body has been battling lung cancer for the past couple of years and she had been doing very well. Isn’t it ironic, lung cancer and she never smoked a day in her life? The latest news from the hospital this afternoon is that her doctor told my sister and her husband that percentages are against her recovering at this point. Please be in prayer for my mother. She is a believer in a sovereign God and she would tell you that she is in His hands. But also pray for my sister as she is not taking this new development well. Pray that she put her trust in the sovereignty of God as well.

Thank you.

Soli Deo Gloria.
