A rough time


Once again a post about family. I’ve worried about Nick’s parents for a long time. His dad will be 96 next week and his mom is 93. Come September they will have been married seventy years. My MIL broke her hip about fifteen years ago and we let her take two whole Sundays off from cooking for us all. But she fell again this past Thursday evening and broke her hip on the other side – or it broke and she fell, who knows. Anyway, a lot has changed in the past fifteen years.

She’s frail now, weighs about seventy pounds and has dementia. Thankfully all five of their kids live in town and all are more than willing to help. Surgery is tentatively scheduled for Monday. I’ve always love my mother and father-in-law. Nick’s little mother is as sweet and kind as they come. This is a hard thing. It’s hard to know exactly what to pray for.  But we use prayers. I’m praying for her to be free from pain and God’s will be done.

Sorry to hear about your MIL going through this yet again. That was so generous of you to give her time off from cooking last time. LOL! Hope you are considerate again this time.
Sending positive healing vibes for a speedy recovery and praying for the whole family. Dementia is such a cruel disease.
Hugs Lindy xx

To live into your 90's is quite a feat, and to be married for seventy years is truly another. I wish your mother in law all the best in dealing with this ordeal, its wonderful that family is so close. Thinking of you and sending light.

Prayer always helps. I will alternate one for her and one for you and Nick.

We'll give her more time this time. Seriously I think she only took two weeks off back then. She loved cooking for us.
