:exclaimation: My mother is extremely ill and I think she may even be dying!
Her nursing home is refusing to cooperate & answer my questions so far. Their highly evasive behavior is suspicious and leads me to be all the more worried for her...

So I stand in much need of God's wisdom on if ( and who ) I should call over there today. :noidea: I don't want them to get angry and then take it out on HER ( that I am voicing my concerns.) Because they may get offended and recieve it as me dissing their facility.

Mom herself normally explains all to me, but lately has been unable to even put sentences together and keeps on falling asleep on the phone. She is suddenly speaking very slurred! Either they are overmedicating her or she had a stroke and they are not telling me.

When she could communicate she told me that she was dozing off in the midst of her meals. That's NOT a good thing...because she could end up in a diabetic coma! Her blood sugars have been really low these days. ( Her Parkinson's is worse than ever, too.)

Some things that she experiences there strike me as elder abuse! I am beside myself :( ...truely not knowing WHAT to do next.

Please pray God leads me on how to help her and that He protects and heals my mom. And for her to become born again...the sooner the better, if her life is in danger or nearing its end.

Still holding both your mum and yourself in prayer dear sister

I know how worried you are but in some things they cannot tell you since to disclose her medical condition ( unless you hold power of attorney ) is illegal. Not even a doctor can discuss it with you without your mums written consent or her being there and also giving verbal consent so please let your mind be a little more at ease about why they sound so evasive.

Praying that you can find someone who will be able to set your mind at ease

Hello turtletwo

I pray that God may be with you, your Mom, and all your family at this difficult time.

Tend Your sick ones, O Lord Christ.
Rest Your weary ones.
Bless Your dying ones.
Soothe Your suffering ones.
Pity Your afflicted ones.
Shield Your joyous ones,
and all for Your love's sake. Amen. +

I speak Gods healing in her right now... He sent His word and healed them. I pray for God to convict every heart and bring to light all truth of what really happened to your mother. Father we pray for an extension on her life and that Lord God She may have her name written in the lambs book of life. Please know that when your mother is unresponsive... that her spirit CAN hear and you may still say the prayer of salvation with her. Her spirit will receive Jesus. Send back a praise report because one is coming! Don't give up
