Please Pray For My Grandma

Some of you might know that my grandmother (and lone surviving grandparent) was diagnosed with early stage dementia last year. This morning we received word from my uncle that her condition is deteriorating. When my sister called her this morning to check on her, it took her a few minutes to recognize her name. She is also having trouble with her digestive system.

Grandma has lived by herself in the same house in California for all these years since my mom and uncle left home in the 70's. It is therefore very difficult for her to accept any alternative living situation in spite of her health condition. She would like for mom to go and care for her for a while, but that is not a very practical solution. Please join me in praying for my grandma's health situation, and for wisdom among family members as to how best to care for her during this time.

Back to blogging

I would like to thank those of you who have gently nudged me back into blogging - Rosy for the occasional virtual shoulder tap, Paul for your consistent posts that remind me I should be doing the same, and Salome for recently encouraging me and getting me over the hump, so to speak.

So today I resume my blogging with a stream of parallel posts - one retroactive and one current - in order to accelerate the catching up process. Thanks for reading. :)
