9 Siblings that all live close by but with only two, sometime three that care mostly for him 24/7. Second to the oldest sister moved in to his home. She is very cold and not very compassionate. When Dad was in full time hospice care, she did not want to tell the others. Not even my uncle, the only brother left. She was very angry with me that I set out of the box to inform everyone. And now this is the second week, dad is having mini strokes.
The hospice nurse inform her that his heart is very weak. To keep a close watch on him, not to let him get up by himself. She still leave him alone at home, in the hospital bed. And again will update the other siblings of his weekly visit from the hospice nurse. She is now coming twice a week. I really believe my dad's time is very close now. I just want to make sure everyone gets a chance to have closer. But, I have tried sending email out and meetings invites. No one thinks he is going to die.
My prayer is that he has peace with God, his brother and 3 sons, 6 daughters before he graduates to his Glory.
Will my prayer get answered?
