Update on my life...

So, this past week you may have seen several of my facebook statuses mentioning things like "need  lots of prayers today...please" and "could use a few prayers today".  Well, I only feel it is fair for all of you to know what is going on, so please take some time to read this and pray for my grandmother for a while.  Back in November, my grandmother was diagnosed with a brain tumor.  As soon as we heard this, my family drove up to Michigan to be with her and the rest of the family as she underwent surgery.  She came out of surgery successfully and has been doing well until recently.  My grandparents decided to come to North Carolina to visit and while they were here, my grandmother was not acting herself.  My mother and father decided to take her to the hospital to get checked out; while she was there, they transferred her to a different hospital.  According to the nurses and doctors, there has been some swelling in her brain that is causing her to act more strangely than usual and right now they are trying to reduce the swelling with steroids. So far, that is all we know about her and I will be sure to keep you updated.

The sad part of this whole situation is that I am working this weekend in the residence halls, so in other words, I am on duty/on-call the whole weekend and will not be able to see her.  I mean, if something bad truly happens, I will be sure to find someone to take my shift, but until that point I will be here. If she has to stay in the hospital for a while (I pray that she doesn't), I will be able to visit her more often because she is in a hospital extremely close to campus...I guess there are perks to living in Raleigh.

So, in other words, I am worried...who wouldn't be worried about their grandmother?  All I am asking of you are lots of prayers.  Tomorrow, when you go to church, pray for her; before you eat, pray for her; before you go to bed; pray for her....I think you get the point.  I fully believe the power of prayer heals all!

Until then......
