Urgent Prayer Request

This is not what I had planned for our company girl coffee, but I'm on my way out the door.

Please pray for my sweet papaw.  He's in the ICU in Dallas.  He's been in the hospital since the week of Christmas.  I'm about to head down there because they have put him on a respirator and a feeding tube, and they're going to do a lung biopsy--they're not sure if he's going to make it.

I know that I will see him again in heaven, but that doesn't curb the sadness my family is feeling now.  Thank you, friends.

girl and you are right, it doesn't curb the sadness. We just lost my father-in-law and it has been a very sad time. Praying for you and God's perfect will.

I'm so sorry, and hope for the best for your pawpaw. I lost my dad to lung cancer 22 years ago and often wonder how much he'd have enjoyed his grandchildren. I hope that the biopsy comes up negative and you have much more time to share!
