Prayers Please

Normally I don't get too personal on my blog but today is different. I think my last post was in May and I am here today asking for prayers. My mother-in-law has just had 3/4 of her foot amputated and my lose her leg below the knee. This is due to poor circulation and blocked arteries in the lower half of her body. She is not diabetic but she is a smoker. They gave her an oxygen treatment yesterday in the "dive" chamber. It was supposed to be 3hrs, she could only get through half of the time. They are going to try another treatment Monday. If her heel area does not show signs of healing they will have to remove her leg. If that happens she will not be able to walk again and more than likely will have to go to a nursing home. She is 79, weighs only 106 and is only 4'11". We all have a strong belief in God and we are continuing our prayers but you can never have too many. Her name is Martha Wilson and I would be grateful for your prayers. God bless you all and have a wonderful day. If you don't climb the mountain, you can't view the plain.

Thinking of you all. I hope your MIL's treatment goes very well today and that her heel will show signs of healing. Hugs.

Prayers sent and will be remembering you and family at this time. A burden shared lightens your load. My blog friends have been a great support to me this summer.
I went thru this with my Mom and it is a rough thing to go through. Extra hugs.

I didn't realize she was in that shape Kathy. Hope you and Ricky are holding up and that she improves.
