Asking everyone to pray please! (long but please please read)
Last Saturday evening, July 12, my Papaw just went quiet. I was told one minute he was ok and the next he was just standing up with his eyes closed slurring his words. My Grammy checked his sugar levels (he's also diabetic) and they were in the 260s. So they called and ambulance and he's been in the hospital ever since.
The hospital ran a lot of tests and the next morning we all found out he had a stroke. Some days he responds and some days he refuses (we are hoping that's because he just wants them to leave him alone). He can not talk at all... He tries but can't.
I was finally, thankfully, able to see him tonight. He squeezed my hand (only has use of his right side) and would shake his hand when I asked him a question. It broke my heart to see him like that and it breaks my heart that I'm typing this. At one point my mom went and talked to his night nurse and he used as much strength as he could to open his eyes and look at me. He did everything he could to do that.
My grammy is having a hard time dealing with this (and everything else that's been going on with my family..but that's all a different story). I wish and pray I could be down there to help her and it breaks my heart that I can't be.
My Papaw has been in the hospital for a week now and we are not sure at all how things will turn out. So please please pray that he gets better. I told him he needs to get better and come home to his family and he shook his head yes. My family needs all the prayers we can get. Please!!!!
If you read all this I thank you from the bottom of my heart. My family needs this. I am so heartbroken. :(
