Please pray for my grandpa to...

Recommended Posts

Man I don't know where to start.

Well Tuesday all day at school I knew something was about to happen (But I didn't know what). So after a friend drop me off at my house. I walked inside, and sat down on mom's bed while shes on the computer. I said something going to happen it could with grandpa. Because about 4-5 days before Easter he went to the hospital because he was feeling weak, and the dang hospital didnt call us till 2 days later. Mom told me about week ago she called him, he was saying he was feeling strong, and you dont need to call so offen now. Then about 4 mins later we get a phone call from grandpa's neighbor. She said she hasn't seen grandpa outside latily.

So me,dad,and mom went over to his house about 30-40 mins away in Illinois. When we get there mom open the mailbox, and notice there was mail still in it (about 2 days worth). We knew something was wrong because he always get it right after the mailman drives away. So dad gave me the other pair of keys, and we ran to the house. He got the front door, and I got the back door.

I got in first in the house, and yelling *grandpa* no answer. I ran into all the rooms, and found grandpa laying on grandma's old bed. She past away about year, and half ago. I yelled for mom,and dad I found him. Found out he was so weak he couldnt move off the bed. He was skin, and bones when we found him. He went to the bathroom on the bed, and thru-up in the trashcan next to the bed.

So we called 911, and got the paramedics to come. When we got to the hospital. We waited till someone call us to go back with them. Since this is a hospital out, and middle of nowhere they couldnt help him much. So a helicopter came in, and got him air lifted to north-east christian hospital in ST Louis. So when we was getting there we saw the helicopter landing on the roof there.

So we got in there, and waited in the waiting room for about a hour. 1 of the doctors came in, and said. He has 2 blockes they can't fix. He also said hes like going 1/4 speed of a normal heart. They can't work on him, and risking the chance of living thru this. So there trying different way of kepting him stable. So far its working. But he cant really move or talk now.

He may be in the hospital for about acomple more days. So you might not see me on. *Well I'm hardly never on as it is..*

So please pray for him.:sad:

You got our prayers. As hard as it is, it is sometimes what they want. Example, my grandpa past about 2 years ago just from old age. My grandma who has been as healthy as you could imagine just past about 2 weeks ago. It seems like after my grandpa passed her will kind of faded. One of the last things she told my mom was great her life has been. She had 6 beautiful children who grew up to be successful. She has showered all of her grand kids with love. She has seen some of her great grand kids. She said she was ready to be with grandpa again. As bad as death seems she was ready. It made the whole family feel at ease.

I pray to god that your family doesn't lose him.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.....and what Bot said, that makes total sense. Sometimes when you lose the one you love, it's hard to live without them, and your heart aches so bad for them, it just gives out.

Its like the body knows when its time to give up, when its best for us to go...have faith and put your trust in God....he won't ever let you down.

So far the update.

He has been moved out of SICU *2nd floor*, and moved up to the 9th floor. When we walk in today we was surprise he was siting up striaght, and saying hey. But about 2 hours later he scared us bad because he was having chest pains then wasnt breathing. When we left today he was feeling better, and went over to his house. To get the mail, finsh up cleaning the house, and moving everything back from the paramedics.

So were going back to the hospital tommorow like we've been doing.

Godspeed. I hope everything turns out for the best!

I just only wish man just read below.

I'm in tears typing this 1.

Well around 10am the hospital called, and told us to come to the hospital quick. So when we got there. There was a lot of people in the room checking up on him. About 15 mins after everyone left he was looking around the room. But couldnt talk, and he was weak again.

Then I think it was his last breath with his eyes open, and just laid there. I just had a meltdown crying. Then we left the hospital about 3pm. To grandpa house, and talk about all the good times we had with him.

R.I.P Walter Jordan at the age of 79. He died at 12:10pm.

OMG! Im so sorry I didnt see this update sooner! Just remember..he isnt suffering anymore and he is in a better place, with your grandmother. I dont know if this will help or not but my grandmother has lung cancer and is going to pass very soon. She told me not to be sad, that she will always be in my heart. She also said that whenever I see the trees blowing in the wind...thats her saying hello.

Everything will be ok. He's in a good place. My prayers to you and your family.

      Hello there, i am wanting to know, what would be a good 4 wheeler with a manual transmission?  Either a real manual with a clutch, or a semi automatic transmission. Either 2 or 4WD will do.  What i do want is one that has a rack at each end and can pull a small trailer.   So what are your suggestions? I am open to most any brand though Linhai is the only one from China i would buy.    
         So far it looks like Arctic Cat is overwhelmingly what fits what i'm looking for, but like i said, i'm open to almost any make. If there is any rivalry over brands count me out, i like them all.   What i do want is one that will last through farm use, hauling feed sacks and so forth.

      Rubicon Trail Update: Water Quality Board Meets - Rubicon Stays Open
      SACRAMENTO, CA (April 27) - The Rubicon Trail is open and OHV recreation is sustained on this icon of four-wheeling, according to the Rubicon Trail Foundation (RTF) and Friends of the Rubicon (FOTR). The Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board (CVRWQCB) voted unanimously to issue a Cleanup and Abatement Order (CAO) to El Dorado County and the Eldorado National Forest for the world-famous Rubicon Trail that sustains motorized recreation while enhancing stewardship of the trail.
      Not only did the Board enact an order that recreationists can live with, but they also went so far as to praise the efforts of the volunteers for addressing trail issues in such a prompt manner all these years.
      The Rubicon Trail traverses the mighty Sierra Nevada Mountains of California from roughly Georgetown, CA to Lake Tahoe, CA. Water runoff and erosion are always concerns on trails in the west, but thanks to the efforts of all the clubs and members of Friends of the Rubicon in partnership with Eldorado County, landowners and the USFS, the Rubicon Trail is well maintained.
      "FOTR has invested thousands of hours of organized trail work and maintenance since our beginning in 2001," said Del Albright, co-Founder and Trail Boss, Friends of the Rubicon. "We are well-prepared to address any concerns or issues on this famous trail, and we are working towards a future of stewardship we can all be proud of," Albright added.
      Greg Mumm, Executive Director of the BlueRibbon Coalition, pointed out that "BlueRibbon has sponsored Del's leadership of efforts on the Rubicon Trail since the beginning, and we are confident that FOTR can handle this like they have everything else thrown at this famous trail."
      The Rubicon Trail Foundation is the 501©3 non-profit organization dedicated to supporting efforts on the Rubicon Trail. They led the effort to ensure the Water Board understood all trail issues. RTF has position statements covering many aspects of trail use on the Rubicon, including topics like water quality, sanitation, camping, and year-round use.
      The Rubicon Trail Foundation does not support the blanket restriction of Rubicon Trail use by season, or by vehicle numbers, type or size. Further, the Rubicon Trail Foundation encourages the establishment of reasonable and practical operating procedures for training of volunteer groups and others to install and maintain trail drainage structures, stream crossings and new trail segments.
      Other issues being addressed by the dedicated volunteers of FOTR and RTF include mitigating oil spills and managing human waste. The Rubicon Trail Foundation supports requiring every Rubicon Trail user to carry portable human waste disposal devices and requiring every motorized user to carry oil spill kits.
      The Rubicon Trail Foundation works hand in hand with the Friends of the Rubicon and together, with the agency partners, these groups are ensuring an access-friendly future for the Rubicon Trail.
      "We look forward to implementing this order from the Water Quality Board in conjunction with our great partners in the county and USFS, because we all will benefit, and our trail will stay open, alive and well," Albright concludes.
      More information on RTF position statements, mission, and the CAO is available at Welcome to Rubicon Trail Foundation - or by emailing Board Director Scott Johnston at [email protected]
