Prayers for Grammie
This is my Grammie:
She’s one of the sweetest, cutest, goofiest, spunkiest ladies you’ll ever meet and I love her to pieces. My brother and I are the 2 oldest grandkids on that side of the family, with a pretty big gap before the next grandkids were born. So I’ve had the pleasure of having her as a grandma for many years, and then transistioning into dear friends in my adult life.
I’ve had many heart-to-hearts with her, talking about marriage, pregnancy trials, everything. She’s been through it all - more than one person should ever have to go through- yet she has such a positive attitude and spirit and always tells me, “Kristina – God is good. All. the. time.” Amazing woman.
Anyhow, I tell you all of this because, I’m asking for your prayers… Grams is in the hospital with congestive heart failure. Her heart is running on 25%, and she has fluid in her lungs. She is doing pretty well (and is stable). The doctors said the meds will help her heart not have to work as hard – but it won’t fix it. Her heart will now always be weak (which is a very scary thing). God’s in control, but I ask that you pray for strength for her and wisdom for the doctors.
This woman is very dear to me.
Anyhow, I have lots of yummy recipes pending that I just need to add a few touches to, so just bear with me & I’ll have some new stuff for ya! Thank you dear readers! xoxo
