    Will pray for her at mass tomorrow.

    What would the 'bypass operation' be for? Is she diabetic?

    Yes there's diabetes in the family. She has PAD. In short, there is a lack of blood circulation to her legs. It was determined that she is too fragile to go through an operation or amputation. Heart is weak. Breathing is bad, and she has internal bleeding. They are stopping Coumadin meds and antibiotics.

    I gather there is a severe infection (septicaemia)going on. Thus the internal bleeding.
    I am so sorry to hear this. I will pray for her.

    Yes, you are correct. Earlier in the week it was all hopeful. Yesterday was when it all changed. My father was devastated and heart broken. I will go to NY next and stay for the rest of the month. If permitted by circumstances to be with both mom and Dad.

    Our prayers are with you Matt. Your poor father and mother. I will put them in my night prayers and tomorrow at Corpus Christie. And you too of course.

    Thank you to all those who held my my mother in your prayers. She ran the race and has finished. She is now with God and at peace. The homily given was about the gravestone that has your name and three other things... The date she was born, the date she died, and what looks to be the insignificant "dash" in between. That dash though is very important as that encapsulates the life she lead. Now I ask myself... How will my dash be viewed by God. God bless you all!
