It’s been a very emotional time in our family’s life. Our dear Nonna has been very ill and is in the hospital. She is experiencing liver and kidney failure.
A few days ago she was unresponsive and we thought this was it, we even had our priest come in and give her the Sacrament of the Annointing of the Sick. But alas, she has come back to us and is becoming more aware and responsive. We know medically this is because her ammonia levels have decreased but we are experiencing little miracles everyday.
She has shown us such strength and courage. I’ve never met someone stronger than her. She even has a smile on her face amidst her situation.
I know our prayers are working and she is surrounded by love which in itself works far better than medicine ever will.
She has taught me so much, especially to never give up hope!
I was forwarded a Novena by some dear friends and tonight I will start it.
It is a Novena for the Sick to St. JosemarÃa EscrivÃ¡.
I know that in all things God works for the good! He is watching over my Nonna and is in control of her soul.
Praying for you always Nonna!
