If losing one parent wasn’t enough…

Yesterday afternoon my mom who also lives near me, went into sudden cardiac arrest. She was without oxygen for at least 10 mins. The paramedics pumped her full of drugs and shocked he 5 times before they got a pulse. She is on full life support at this time. They have lowered her body temperature and will begin rewarming her in the morning and then begin neurological testing. She is a believer and doesn’t want to be a vegetable and remain on life support for an extended period of time. We are asking for God’s will in her life. Please pray for my brothers, Mike & Chris, also my sister Debbie and my step-dad Don, for strength and wisdom to do what is best for mom. I’m also asking for prayer for myself as I am struggling to find answers of why God would choose to take both of my parents in such a close amount of time. Dad is still hanging in there and I’m hoping for a miracle for him. I don’t know how to lose one parent let alone two and continue in my sobriety. I’m scared and I have so much to lose if I fall. Thank you.

    I am so sorry to hear of this. It brings back memories of when my Mum passed away in much the same manner. There is nothing worse than seeing your loved one slip away like this. I know exactly what you are feeling. My Mum was at my side every step of the way as she nursed me back to health from my eating disorder. Then when I found her I felt so helpless knowing that there was nothing I could do to help her. And as much as you may not want to hear it right now, the best thing you can do for her is to pray for her and let her go home to be with our Lord. Stay strong and believe that Jesus will guide you. He will give you the strength to get through this. Use ALL your support network and healthy coping mechanisms to stay strong in your sobriety. Trust God. He WILL guide you and keep you where you belong. Love & blessings to you and your family.
