View Full Version : Can you pray for her

My grandma is very sick and lives all the way in England. She is having quite a few mini strokes.:cry: Now she is starting to forget stuff and talking about stuff that doesn't even make sense. Like today I don't even know what she was talking about,it went from the color green yarn to knitting to we are going to visit her to where we are staying. You see though none of it made sense. I wish I could visit her. Now she is being sent to a 3rd hospital!:sad: Please if you could, pray for my Grandma. The worst part for her is she loved to knit(she had a passion for it)and now her hands are messed up then a stroke. She might make it because, this has happen to her a lot and she proved wrong to the doctors. They said stuff like she might not live to much longer but, it has been at least over a year since then. Well thats my story. Please pray for my grandma (Joan Soltysik). I'm only a kid that loves her grandma.:verysad:

Absolutely! :muah:

I just said a prayer now, that your Grandma is safe and happy and looked after, and that you both receive peace of mind.
I feel for you, spechially as you're not in the same country? That's why I prayed for peace of mind, for both of you.
Is you Grandma taking medication? That might be why she seemed a bit all over the place with her conversation. Don't forget, a stroke will do that too but I know here in England, they're really on top of detecting and treating strokes asap. There's a big campagine about spotting the signs and getting treatment asap. The quicker the treatment, the better the chances. It sounds too like your Grandma is really being looked after if they are sending her to different hospitals. They will be sending her to the one with the best Drs and/or consultants to help her.
I hope she gets better really soon and that you are safe and secure in the meantime. (((BIG HUGS)))

I have some good news. My mom, me, and sister are trying to get the money to visit her! I have talked to her she does remember a lot just its like she has no emotion. She's just not happy. Thank you everyone for praying for her. I will keep in touch for you guys.

03-16-2009, 10:29 PM
I hope you manage to get the money! Don't forget, a lot of medications can make you seem devoid of emotion, she was probibly just very tierd from them, the stress of it all and the stroke. I'm not surprised she's not too happy! Probibly had lots of poking and proding from the doctors and is fed up of that too.
My mum has just had a load of tests done and in the middle of it all got raging toothache. It was in a filling she's had for 40 years and has always played her up. They found out why when it was pulled (Big molar) it had 2 roots! I know she got fed up with all the pulling poking and proding she went through. (Blood tests, endoscopy, anemia, ect.)
I imagine if you can get over to her you Nan willl be thrilled and then you'll see lots of emotion from her! :)
I'll pray for you all again now. :) God bless and I really hope you can get over to see her. :) Take care, all of you. :) (((hugs)))

:pray: Thank the Lord for answered prayer...and have a GREAT time with your grandmama. :hug:
I had some "last minute" time with mine a few months before she died and it's a very special last memory that I was able to add to all of my lifetime memories of her. It's hard when you know it may be the last...but, we are so blessed to have been able to have them for so long in our lives. Some are not so lucky!

Safe travels.:pray:

My granny had a series of strokes before she died. She knew what she wanted to say, she just had trouble getting the right words - so sometimes it didn't make any sense, but she hadn't gone senile or anything. It depends on what part of the brain is affected by the stroke. She had to give up her sewing and crochet which she loved, but she lived for many years after the first 2 strokes.
