I need some prayers for my mother :(

I truly do believe that the power of prayer and positive vibes is worth something. And I know my bat-family here is pretty amazing with support and love.

Monday morning, I found my mother in her bed having suffered a stroke. It's really bad right now and she's in the trauma ICU. She made me her health care proxy, so I have a lot of tough things to do - making medical decisions, filing a lot of papers for her job for assistance, and taking care of everything. She's fighting SO hard right now and any prayers and vibes you could send our way would be SO extremely appreciated.

Prayers sent for you and your mother.

Keep that inner strength and faith--even if that is easier said than done.

Heather, praying for you and your mom. I went through the same situation last year with my mom so you have my upmost sympathies. God bless you during this time. JL

Thanks, everybody. I just got home from visiting her again. There's been no change in her brain, which means no further swelling today, so that's a plus. There is so much going on and so many things for me to fill out and questions to ask... I would never want anyone to have to go through everything I'm dealing with to take care of everything I can. What I can say is that I hope all of you explain your medical health to your loved ones who may need to take care of you. And if you have parents or relatives that you may need to care for in the future, PLEASE get as much info from them as you can. My mother kept a lot of her health issues to herself and it's caused a real mess on top of everything. If you have children, please be open with them about what goes on with you, even if you think they can't handle it or you don't want to worry them. I can't stress this enough.

I appreciate every kind word, thought and prayer you guys have offered for my mother. It means the world to me... Sadly, I need to ask for prayers of strength for my sister and I instead. I lost my mother t about five o'clock this morning. My sis and I have a very difficult week ahead of us and I need the strength to get through it and carry her through it with me because she is far from as strong as I can be.

Positive thoughts coming from PA! Lost my mom about a year ago, my dad 26 years ago. I still find myself reaching for the phone sometimes, but it does get easier as time passes....
