When It Rains, It Pours!

Around 10 p.m. last night, my paternal grandmother went to be with her Savior.  She had been in the hospital since last Tuesday, but everyone, including the surgeon and my aunt who's an RN, expected her to make a full recovery.  She had surgery on Sunday, and was moved to ICU Monday due to some blood pressure complications.  Last night, she started having trouble breathing and was in quite a bit of pain.  David and I went to visit around 9 p.m., and left when she started throwing up, thinking we would go back to see her today or tomorrow.  

Thankfully, both of her children were with her.  I know that was very important to her.  I'm thankful that David and I were able to see her last night and tell her that we love her.  

As with Jamie, it's so comforting to know that she's in heaven!  Absent from her body, present with her Lord.  I never spoke to Grandma when she wasn't praising the Lord or thanking him for something.  She was a truly sweet lady who was trusting in Jesus Christ.  

Please pray for my dad and aunt during this tough time!

I am so sorry to hear about your grandmother passing away! I will certainly be praying for you and your family...I know it's got to be hard. But what a comfort to know that you'll see her again someday...it's so difficult when you don't have that comfort!
