View Full Version : I'm heart broken

November 14th, 2018, 05:05 PM
My MIL just called, I don't remember if you all remember Chris (I made him the Hip to be Square quilt earlier this year). He started having seizures last night. They had to call the ambulance to come pick him up. They finally got him calmed and resting. The doctors have met, there's nothing more they can do for him. His mom has called in hospice and his sister drove up to NC last night. His dad and step mom are flying in from TX this weekend.

Bless his heart, he's only 38 years old. His grandmother is taking it hard, but doesn't want him to suffer like her husband did. It's going to be rough on the family with the holidays coming. His dad is Howard's cousin, and has already fought lung cancer and prostate cancer and it on the mends from his last surgery.

If you could add Chris to your prayer list for peace and comfort I would greatly appreciate it. He's always been one of my favorites (even though I shouldn't have favorites).

I am so sorry. Hospice is wonderful, but aw life, the heartaches and stress of it, esp in someone so young. Sending you hugs to get through.

God bless all of you....These times are so hard to accept and to understand. How can any of us know what his family is feeling??? YET, we can certainly pray for Chris and his family...for all of you, and that God will bring peace and comfort to each of you, especially to Chris.
