Well I received a voicemail from my mom a few minutes ago, she said my uncle, who is in ICU, his doctor called his wife and told her that JR is not doing so well and she needs to get up to the hospital. My mom is on her way there now.
He has had to have his leg amputated, he has hepatitis from where he had to have surgery, he has a bunch of other medical problems. His ammonia levels are high, and something is wrong with his kidneys now.
Please Lord, help my uncle fight through this. He was like the father I never had, he is a great man. I don't want my uncle to be called home now, but it also breaks my heart to know he's suffering ='[ I'm at a loss. I wish I could go visit him, but I'm a single mother and no babysitter. Please pray for him and my family.
Sweetie, I know how hard it is to watch a parent suffer. I watched my mom suffer through dementia, she was only 56, and forget who we were. She couldn't even feed herself in the end. She has heart problems, kidney problems and other problems. It was the hardest thing I have ever dealt with. She lived with us, when she wasn't in a nursing home or hospital. She was my best friend and I did not know what to do with out her. The only thing that kept her going was dialysis and her meds. I hope he gets better, but I also hope he doesn't have to suffer the way my mom died. She suffered for 18 months. You and your family will be in our prayers. I know it will do no good because I live in KY, but if I could, I would watch your kids.
