Going To VIsit Granny

It is time for me to once again, pack the clothes, pile everything and everyone in the car and make the 5 to 6 hour drive back to Ohio. The time really depends on how nice the traffic in Chicago decides to be to me today.

I previously told you all a little about my sweet granny having terminal lung cancer, well...she is not doing well, not at all. Her condition is rapidly going down hill and it is believed that the cancer has/is spreading to other parts of her body. She has no appetite and due to not eating, she has lost a tremendous amount of weight. She is becoming very confused and is staying in bed 98% of the time.

I would share more, but I am typing this in a bit of a rush to get out the door. My mom just called yesterday and said that if I want to spend any time, while she still knows whats going on, I had better come fast. So I am going...getting there as fast as I can!

I do not know how long I will be gone, I intend to stay as long as I am needed there. Please pray for my family. And, know that if you do not hear from me for awhile, if I do not post or visit you, it is not because I have forgotten about you.

Being Loved By Him, With You,
Daveda

Daveda,

Praying for your safe journey on your trip to Chicago. Here is hoping that you can get an opportunity to spend some time with your grandmother before God calls her home if that is His plan.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Sweet one, Lord send her angels to get through the traffic, even in Chicago! I know God will bless your time ... He did the same for me. I was able to be with my Gram as she danced into eternity and the day before.

May you be wrapped in His love, like a warm snuggly blanket.

Hugs,
Sarah Dawn

Daveda, I am so incredibly sorry to hear of the news. It is never an easy path to have walk down. We too lost my step-dad at 62 from lung cancer and we had so many emotions that I never even knew existed. Be good to yourself and many thoughts and prayers are with you.

And that is the best time, while she still has strength and aware of everything. As I had gone through the same trial when my dad was dying from colon cancer. It was a beautiful time my brothers and I had with him, despite not being together a lot of time, but the Lord granted that moment for all of us to catch up and have something to store in our hearts, that otherwise, would have been lost.

Have a safe trip sister Daveda and may the Lord cover you all with His strength and comfort. God bless.

Daveda, I hope and pray all is well with you in the midst of this time in your life. I am praying God's comfort and love to encompass around you and make you know He cares about every aspect of what you care about. When you get back to the blogworld, I want to share a gift of friendship with you. Please stop by and pick it up when you can.
