The Hearse Ride...

Still ...

There has been quite a lot of Sorrow here,..as Granny slips into Dementia, ...it gets harder and harder to draw her out of Old Memories! She slips and falls, and doesn't tell me.

Just now an ambulance took her away,..... It's so frequent now, I JUST can't deal with it!

I never ask for prayers, but please something has to give, and I'm afraid it will be me!!

Hi, my brother in madness!

This is bad stuff, alright. There's no avoiding that fact or the pain and sadness you must be feeling right now. But you have coped with a lot in your life that others would not have managed to cope with and you will get through this.

You have done your duty perfectly and devoted much of your life to your grandmother. Perhaps it is now time for you to start living your own life and looking after number one for a change. Give it a go, you might actually enjoy it.

Whether you like it not, I will be praying for you and your gran. You've been a good friend to my little blog and I won't forget that.

Mad Priest included you in the prayer list today, so I wanted to stop by. I'm so sorry. You must be emotionally exhausted. I am including you in my prayers. Mad Priest has some good advice in his comment.

The Mad One has commanded us to pop over and offer you what suppert we can, and I daren't disobey him!

Thinking and praying for you in this difficult time. Seeing the person you know slip away and be replaced by a stranger is gut-wrenching, and you grieve for the loss whilst the physical person is still in front of you.

All you can do is "do what you can", and then letting the situation go into the hands of others when that time comes.

May God bless and keep you, David. May God surround you with the healing power of his love, and give his angels charge over your Gran. You are in my prayers and the prayers of peeps all over the world right now. You and Gran are not alone.

Hi Dave,

As someone who has recently seen his Grandmother go into a care home, I just want you to know I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

How very painful. I will be joining those who pray for you and your grandmother during this difficult time.

David, prayers for your grandmother and for you. Caring for the elderly can be grueling. That you have cared for your grandmother for as long as you have does you great credit. May God give you and others involved in making decisions for your Granny the wisdom to know the best way ahead for your grandmother and for you.

Love and blessings.

Caring for the elderly can be grueling.

Especially when they don't do as they are told and strike up conversations with complete strangers in the middle of the road, having left their purse in a taxi the day before and forgetting to get off the train at the right station.

Prayers for you and your Granny. She is fortunate to have someone as faithful as you to care for her. I know it can be too much at times.

Love to you, David.

Adding my prayers for you & your Gran. It isn't much to just say, I know, but you're in lots of people's thoughts & prayers - let that knowledge be a small something to sustain you.

It is hard to watch a loved on slip into eternity this way. I can only offer prayers -- and do.

We are your friends and spirit family and we care about you and your grandmother.

FWIW

Everyone here at St. Onuphrius' is thinking of you and praying, my Dear Son.

Would it help if we also gave Evangelical Eric a spanking on your behalf?

Praying for your Granny and you.

7/23/2009 9:42 PM  

Oh yes Father Christian, ..a spanking is appropriate!!

Dear David, popping in from the MadPriest's place to send you warm thoughts and prayers. This is a tough time I know, and as MadPriest says you will get through it, but I hope it helps that an eccentric person from West of the Mississippi is holding you and your grandmother in the light.

David, Holding you and your grandmother in thoughts and prayers.
