Thank you for your prayers for Deenie

Just got an update. (See post below for earlier episode.) Deenie is staying at home. Her lawyer and friend (same person) intervened and did some diplomatic and firm persuasion with the health proxy relative. Thanks be to Godde.

If she goes somewhere besides home at some point, it will be a hospice facility and not that nursing home. But for now, she's not going anywhere.

Deenie was weak but awake today, not entirely coherent, but asked for a bit of food and ate it.

Our mutual friend writes: "So, dear friends, please keep praying for a peaceful passage, and for caring and justice on the part of all around her."

Thank you, sweet Jesus and holy Mother Mary and the fierce friends you send our way.

Peace, surcease of pain, and more peace.

Thank Godde! I was so upset when you said she was being moved to a place that wasn't hospice. I keep asking for her to be taken home. Godde, are you listening? I'll keep asking.

I missed the post just prior but I am glad Deenie is being taken care of. My prayers continue.

We prayed for intervention on her behalf and we were answered. Thanks be to God. Should stay home and have hospice come to her, as I am sure you know.

Oh, she has been in hospice care at home for weeks. I may have mentioned this a few posts ago. The chaplain celebrated an anointing sometime around last week, with friends and the nice neighbor, lovely. But sometimes people need to move to an actual hospice facility. Not the best option but at least it's hospice care and not nursing home care. At any rate she is remaining at home and we hope she will stay there... All depends on how she is and who is there to care for her. Thanks for all your prayers and caring.

He (or She) heard the cry. Let us be grateful for that.

TBTG. I am so grateful to hear this. It has to be a load off your mind, too.

I am overjoyed; who is more wonderful than Godde?
