  • Prayers neede

    My dad went into the hospital yesterday for shortness of breath. He was really struggling and is very weak. They have done chest x-ray and it was clear. They say it is some sort of bacterial infection. Now of course my dad has C-diff. He usually gets this anytime he goes into the hospital. Please pray that he gets better. He will be in the hospital until at least Monday. It will be three years on the 21st that he became very ill and went into renal failure. Him being in the hospital just brings all of those same feelings back. I really hope that they can control his shortness of breath. There has been no mention of CHF. I am worried and want to be at the hospital all the time but I just can't. I'm feeling selfish for saying this. I am very worried but in a strange way feel calm. All of these different emotions are very exhausting. I am feeling very guilty for going to work tonight. My dad seemed stable so I thought it would be ok for me to go to work. I am just rambling on, sorry. I am just afraid that this is going to take its toll on him. I haven't seen him this weak in a very very long time. Please pray and thank you for letting me get things off my chest.

        Hi Jody, you don't need to struggle over if you are being selfish or not. It is understandable that you are having difficulty with a bunch of emotions arising right now. Keeping it inside would not be beneficial to you so it is infact the smart thing to do to talk to us. You are not being selfish at all! I will pray for your dad and as well for you and for strength to help you both through this time.

        Take care and thanks for keeping us up to date as we care!

          Thank you for all the prayers. I will keep everyone updated when I learn anything new about my dad. I still keep praying. I am still feeling guilty for not being with him all the time. I know he needs his rest. I will make sure that he has the best fathers day he can tomorrow.

            Jody,
            I understand how you feel...I have been in a similar situation when my father was in the hospital and I wanted to be there but couldn't be there at all times. I will keep you and your father in my prayers. Please keep us updated.

                I am praying for your Father's healing, and for your strength. I do believe in the power or prayer.

                  Jody, I will be praying for your father and you. Feeling selfish is normal. Going back to work doesn't mean you are walking away from the problem. You are there in prayer, in spirit, in faith. God's Speed.
