My mom, 84 years old, came down with Alzheimer's several years ago. She choked on some food at the nursing home Thursday and had to be taken to the hospital and eventually was placed on a ventilator and admitted to ICU. The tube will be removed Sunday morning and things could really go downhill from there. The last several years have been hard on her. Some very difficult choices were made today. Your prayers would be appreciated.

Jerry,
Will keep you and family in our prayers.

My Mom will be 80 next year - just got to see her in the last few weeks.

Latest development;
Ventilator tube was removed this morning with no complications. Mom is finally breathing unassisted. The doctor tried this yesterday and all kind of complications developed. He then re-inserted the vent tube. The doctor told us the next 72 hours will tell which way we are headed. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers. HE IS SO GOOD!!

Thanks to all for your prayers and words of encouragement. It is with a great deal of sadness on my part that I have to inform you that heaven is a little happier this day. Early this morning my Mom passed from this life. She spent the last 8-9 years battling her Alzheimer's disease. At long last, she finally has the peace she so desperately deserves. Those of you who have been touched by this disease in any way, understand what I mean. My sincere thanks to everyone in the group.

Heaven is definitely happy to have your mother. The gladness is that you'll get to see her some day again, and that you know she is at peace.

We'll keep you and your family in our prayers as you remember her passing.
