My grandpa went into cardiac arrest last night. *update in red* another update

:(

He's in a coma and they're not sure how much longer he has.  Please send good thoughts/prayers to my family.  My grandparents have been married for almost 50 years.

They survived a horrific car crash in 2006, which landed him in the ICU for 9 weeks.  He had been healing well, but now he is back in the hospital.

He's such a good man... I will be crushed when he dies.

**UPDATE***

Well, i guess he's ok for now but he has a lung infection (he vomited and it went into his lungs) and his kidneys aren't working very well, and he's on a respirator and oxygen, and a bunch of blood pressure medicine, and antibiotics.  My sister visited him (she is a medic in the air force) and she said it could go either way.  Please keep him in your thoughts.

**UPDATE**

We are cautiously optomistic.  Grandpa was put on dialysis because of his kideys, and it seems to be working.  He was taken off the ventilator and they are slowly taking him out of the coma.  Please pray that he gets even better! Thanks so much for the kind words, everyone.

(((((you & your family))))) My maternal grandma, my last grand parent, passed last fall. I really miss her. May all that is comforting to you and your family find rest in your minds & hearts during this difficult time. If it is meant to be, may your grandpa recover swiftly & completely.

 My mom suffered a massive heart attack back in 2000. Then again this last September. She was in a coma for almost a week. When she was first in the ICU we were told to bring the kids in and say our good bye's. She doesn't remember the coma, she does remember everyone doughting over her. She is still dealing with issues from it. But, she is alive and doing as well as she can. She is my best friend and I don't know what I would have done if she didn't make it. I pray you are lucky like we were. However, I believe God has a plan, and he will do what he feels necessary. I will keep him and your family in my prayers.
