NWR: Please pray for my great grandpa

On Thursday my great grandfather went into the doc for a pre op appointment fro back surgery. They ended up finding 5 clogged arteries. He went in for a triple bypass on Friday and has not woken up yet. Yesterday they did a MRI and found that he had several strokes and they said that there is hardly any part of his brain that wasnt affected. Today at 3 mountain time they are meeting with the doctors to decide if they are going to take him off life support or put in a feeding tube and put him in a home.


I dont want him to be trapped in his own body and live the rest of his life as a vegetable. But at the same time I hope they give him a chance. My anxiety is threw the roof at work waiting for the phone call of when I can start the 7 hour drive there to see him.

Thank you so much ladies for the support!! They made their decision.


He is in Great falls right now. They are going to start the process of getting him moved back home to Lewistown MT and once they get him settled they are going to take him off the machines and let him go naturally. I am very sad about this but it is what needs to be done. When things like this happen I always start to regret things. I regret not going to see him more. He never got to meet my son. It reminds all of us not to take life for granted. But we cant help to get too busy and all tied up in life.


I know he will be watched over and he will get to be with his loveing wife again.


 We love you grandpa!!!!
