Prayers for my Pa Pa




***UPDATE:

Papa completed his first dialysis yesterday and is feeling better and more comfortable. This is such an answer to prayer, that he will feel well enough to be able to go home. No one knows exactly how long he has left, but we do know that his heart is working at 10% and it's very tired...thank you all for your prayers! It means more than you know!

Original post:

Yesterday I received news that my Pa Pa is nearing his last days. He's been in the hospital with heart problems, and we were under the assumption he would be coming home today. Unfortunately, the doctors have told him he will not make it. His response to being resuscitated was "No, I'm ready to go to Heaven." They are in talks today to put a port in to give him dialysis, just to make him feel better until his heart gives out on it's own. It's VERY hard for my family right now, and even harder for me being over here and not able to see him one last time. I was able to talk to him in his hospital room yesterday, which was really difficult. I ask that you lift him and my Nani up in prayer, and also my family driving up to see him and give him their last goodbyes...thank you in advance for keeping my family in your thoughts and prayers...it's a very difficult time!

Katie--I am so sorry to hear
about your Papa..I know it must
be very difficult. My own mother
passed away two weeks ago, and
Kristen & Paige were so sad,
but grateful at the same time that
their "Nanny" went to Heaven and
is free from pain and suffering.
I share your sadness.

Love, Cindy
