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.

I understand what you and your family are going through, I went through the same situation with a close family member not so long ago.
What you requested for is very important - Wisdom.
God will give both you and your family strength to pull through this.
Hang in there.

I am not quite sure how I got to your blog. Anyway, my cucu has dementia too. She was diagnosed earlier this year. The funny thing about my cucu is that even though she doesn't remember stuff, her character (stubbornness) still shines through. I can't wait to see her in a couple weeks. I will keep you and your cucu in my mahoyas.
