My mom is in the hospital and she's very ill.
I hope that God steps in and helps her to heal.
She's in critical condition, one of her legs had to be amputated.
The doctors and nurses have given up hope and I'm devastated.
When she opens her eyes, she doesn't even recognize me.
She and I are very close and if she dies, it will drive me to my knees.
She has a blood clot in one of her lungs and she has a lot of infection.
If a lot of people pray for her, the good Lord might give her protection.
She's in so much pain that it causes her to squirm in her bed.
When my phone rings, it scares me because it might be somebody calling to inform me that she's dead.
If she dies, it will be extremely hard for me and my relatives to cope.
But she's not dead yet so that means there may be hope.
Mom is a great person and if she dies, it will truly be unfair.
It will mean a lot to me and my relatives if she receives your prayers.
(Dedicated to Agnes Johnson, my mom.)
