Prayer Request

Hey friends,

My Grandma is in a little need of prayer. She had some blockage removed from an artery in her neck this week, and the surgery went pretty well but there have been complications ever since. She had some irregular heartbeats, followed by an extremely painful bowel obstruction, and now due to no food or water and only a constant IV, her lungs are gathering fluid. I guess that is a somewhat "normal" occurrence in the elderly if they are doing nothing but sitting in a hospital bed having fluid pumped into them--makes sense. However it is not comfortable for her nor settling for the rest of us. The doctors at this point are hoping to send her home in a couple of days and are feeling positive, but there are still a lot of question marks.

She is a trooper and such an awesome woman (um, graduated college at the age of 80), so we would love to keep her around and have her feeling healthy and happy again. Also my mom is being Alpha Caretaker right now, as I am 60 miles away with work obligations and cannot exactly help her directly. My dad will be in town tomorrow to offer much needed support, but in the meantime my mama could use some prayer too.

Thanks so much for your prayers!
