Please pray for our Dave

Update (May 16):

Last night, Dave’s dad passed away — quietly and peacefully.
Dave asks me to thank everyone who prayed for his dad and his family. He wants you to know that all your prayers helped a great deal.
He asks that we continue to pray for his mom — dad and mom had been married for nearly 64 years.
Please keep Dave in your prayers as well. His mom is also seriously ill, and Dave himself has diabetes.
Tears….

8Dave, one of FOTM’s writers, needs your prayers.
Dave’s dad has Alzheimer’s disease. About a week ago, he fell down the stairs and was taken to emergency hospital. He was kept in ICU for a while, then was released, after the doctors determined he did not have a stroke.
But now, Dave’s dad has stopped eating and is being kept (barely) alive with IV fluid. He will be moved to a hospice today or tomorrow.
Dave, who has diabetes, has been caring for his dad and his mom (who’s also ailing) for several years now.
Please say a prayer for Dave’s dad, and also for Dave — that the peace and strength of our Lord, Jesus, be with them both.
Love and prayers to Dave from our little band of FOTM writers,
~Eowyn

Thanks for posting this prayer request, Dr. Eowyn.
The more prayers being made for Dave’s Dad (and Mom, and Dave), the better.
Dave, your family is in my prayers.

Thanks, Doc E, and to everyone here at FotM. These last sixteen days have been difficult, to say the least. It had appeared for a couple of days that my dad was going to recover to a certain degree, but now that he has stopped eating, it’s only a matter of time. We were asked if we wanted them to put a permanent feeding tube into him, and we declined, as it would involve a surgical procedure that would require anesthesia, and we very much doubt he would survive something that traumatic at this point. Besides, my dad was always… Read more »

Dear Lord Jesus, there is never a problem you cannot solve and Brother Dave can rest assured that you are in the midst of the midst of it all, working all things out for the best since we know he love you so much. We praise and thank you for your mercy and forgiveness for all of our fears and weaknesses and we put our trust in you to reward his father with a hearty “Well done” when that time comes, now or further on down the highway to Heaven. Certainly there may be a crown awaiting him and one… Read more »

Just checked in here after a couple of crazy days in hubby’s office. My sincerest thoughts and prayers are with you. Both myself and my husband lost our dads to this dreadful disease. Decisions like yours were ones we had to make–it is not easy.

Dave,
Am sending prayers your way. It sounds like you and your father were really close. It’s neat that you are redoing those flights you took together. He’s right there with you, always. ( I fly, too. There is nothing else like it in the world.) My dad recently passed away after having normal pressure hydrocephalus for several years.

Dear, dear Dave – I can’t add a thing to these beautiful posts, but I do ask you to take care of yourself. Make sure you eat and get enough sleep. I know how difficult that is right now, but you are needed!!
