Other than my mother, the person I am closest to is my grandfather.



He’s been diagnosed with prostate cancer and undergoing treatments for a over a year. Today, mom went to see him â€" he’d been taken to ICU in the “convalescent” hospital he’s in. He’s sedated, with a very high white blood cell count, bad infection and the possibility of the cancer spread to bone marrow. He's on a respirator because he's having trouble breathing. He’s not in a regular hospital, and they don’t want to transport him to one for fear he will not survive the trip. He’s signed a DNR and made everyone aware of his wishes to be let go.



I’m not a religious person, but if you could say a prayer to whomever or whatever you believe in, or send healing thoughts, I would really appreciate it.

Prayers on the way Shawn!! As many of you know I too am very close to my grandfather. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer a good decade ago, but somehow by the good grace of God he is still fairly healthy today. Best wishes to your grandfather. God Bless!

You have our prayers speckle-catcher ...

It's really difficult when cherished members of our family grow old and have to put up with the changes the body goes through from aging.

Our whole family will be praying for him. And your love for him will help sustain him. You can be sure of that!

Shawn, I am praying for your grandfather and family. Like Cool Change, I too have a special place in my heart for grandpas. Partly because of the terrific one I had and partly because of how great is is to BE one. Please tell your grandfather that all your friends in here are thinking about him and praying for him.
