View Full Version : Pray for my grandmother

She's had "the flu" for three weeks, and then went into the hospital today with an irregular heartbeat. They are running tests overnight. She's 80 and a believer, but it would devastate my mom (her real mom died when she was 12 from MS. This is her stepmom).

Diagnosis came in today. She has Gillian-Barre's disease. It's what former Heisman winner Danny Weurffel has -- a degenerative and rare nervous system disease that eventually causes paralysis and other issues.

In most cases it wouldn't be terminal, though it can be. It's most likely terminal for my grandmother though. She's 80. She's been in the hospital for just over a week and can't walk now. Her legs won't move, they just buckle.

Pray for my family and my grandmother specifically. She's pretty pitiful right now. She just cries and lets my mom (who is staying with her at the hospital) how thankful she is for her.
