Even more prayers, please!

Okay, girls. I need you to send some more prayers my way. I've been posting asking for some for Jarrett's grandma and family. Today...I need even more!

Here it is in a nutshell. They found out a week and a half ago that she has lung cancer. The tumor is VERY aggressive and is multiplying very rapidly. She is too weak to give any treatment too and they gave her a month or 2 to live.

They have called in hospice and she is not able to leave the hospital even to die at home. Last night, we got a call that they didn't think she was even going to make it through the night. Jarrett went to the hospital and was there VERY late. I wasn't able to go because I had to stay home with the kids. My grandparents all died 10 years ago, so she has been like a grandma to me as well. I am just devastated. It kills me to see her suffer like this and it kills me even more to see Jarrett and his family being ripped apart inside. She was 100% normal...healthy...up until 2 weeks ago. How in the world does this happen???? :(

She ended up making it through the night, but now it's just a matter of time. They have stopped all treatment and are just "keeping her comfortable". She has been on morphine since yesterday and hardly wakes up at all. Right now, I'm just hoping that she goes quickly and quietly to end all the pain. Please send your prayers to our whole family right now. We need them. We just need the strength to pull through and realize that this is what God intended. If I'm not around the forums much this week, that's why. I will be updating my blog though for anyone who is interested. Thanks in advance! I appreciate it. {{HUGS}}

Oh, dear. DEFINITELY sending prayers your way. My grandmother passed very peacefully in hospice, so please don't worry. She knows you are there with her when you are. She knows you love her. So just spend all the time you can with her. {{hugs}}
