Prayers Requested

Karen called me at my part time job tonight to tell me she couldn't reach her mother all day. Her mother is an extremely active, spry woman of eighty. Karen went to her house, she hadn't been out all day as the mail was still there, and her house was completely locked up. She called me wondering what to do, and I told her if she thought her mother was in the house to call 911. Karen went home, and came back with one of my boys. He was able to pull open a screen door that was locked, and Karen was able to use her key. They found her mother on the floor of the bathroom where she had suffered a stroke. She had been there about 8 hours.

She's in the hospital, and they've got her stabilized. Her left side is pretty much gone, she can't lift her arm, and it's a question if she'll be walking again. Her speech is slurred. She's in good spirits, but comes and goes.

This is tough for Karen, they are very close. Several years ago, Karen found her grandmother after she had passed away, and it was very traumatic for her. She's been worried about this day, also. This isn't easy for either of them.

If you could keep Karen and her mother in your prayers, it would be much appreciated.
