Thank You Trek,
I'm always thinking of how I can help & pray for others, I didn't think to list my prayers that are needed! My mind so preoccupied these past
Oh boy where should I start, the list is endless really! But the most important person that needs prayers right now, Is my Mom.
Mom went in the hospital oh about a mouth ago, which she would usually end up in there about every full moon without fail for the past 5 months!
She suffers from congestive heart failure, and when her oxygen levels would fall to a dangerous level and her ankles swell, she would go in for about
4 days until all was normal!
But this last time was different, Mom is 83, and very independent and the Hospital forgot to put on the bed alarms and she got out of bed to go to the
bathroom and made it to the foot of the bed and fell and broke her hip!
She had to get surgery, but at first wasn't strong enough to have the surgery, so she suffered for 7 days until she could! They didn't think she
would make it through it! We all gathered and pray harder than we ever prayed that God would be merciful! She is a strong women & has been through 9
major surgery's. God indeed heard our prayers - so much so the Doctor said she handled the surgery like a 65 year old women!
It would be weeks before she would learn to walk again, they had to put her in a Nursing Home Rehabitation Center for Short Term Care! Long story
short we chose the best that the Ratings showed and one we all knew had the best care!
Here is where it gets Heart Wrenching to say the least, What I will share, is the reason I wasn't on this for about 4 days this past week. I went to
visit Mom the other day, and asked her how everything was. The whole Family Noticed that something was very wrong the past 2 weeks, Finially we were
alone her and I, so I asked her right out once again, Mom are you ok? Her answer this time was No, she said I'm going to tell you something and your
not going to like it one bit, but I want you to know I can bare it a little longer cause I'm going home soon! I'm like what is it? What Happened
to you! If you could see my Mom's face at this moment, I knew what she was going to tell me was definitely not good at all!
My Mom then told me the male nurse that was caring for her was molesting her! My heart fell to the floor & broke, I was so broken, so sick at that
moment for her, I took her into my arms and held her for I don't know how long! I then looked at her, as were both crying, and I said Mom, for how
long, she said since day one! Two other female roommates came in the room then overheard Mom say the person's name & that he had hurt her, but they
didn't hear how, they told me can I tell you what this person did to me?
I said of course if you want too. They said exactly the same thing my Mom told me. They wearn't in the room when Mom told me the personal issues of
what was done, they only heard once they were in their beds that he had hurt her! By hearing that, my heart broke even further for them as well! So
far we have 2 others & Mom makes 3 that he did this too!
All Mom kept saying is what if He is a family man, & has kids - I said to her, you have to think of yourself right now, and know from this moment on
you will be safe, that I promise you! Mom and I buzzed the nurse and if you could see my 110 lb little Mom with her head down told her story to the
nurse, and ended a nightmare that probably was ongoing for so many patients for who knows how many years! This man worked there for 11 long years!
I was able to find out the man is not married, nor has he ever been, and has no children! He's in his 50's. I told mom about that, and she was
relieved he had no family especially children who would suffer from the news!
My Dad was there in a blink and so was the rest of the family! The police were notified and Mom went home safe! She will do the rest of the rehab
with home nurses!
My prayers like I said that are needed are for Mom, she is a wonderful loving caring women, always putting others before herself! Everyone that ever
met her loved her from the start! In all her 83 years she has never suffered abuse in this way from another person!
That night I heard this news, when I got home I cried like I never cried before. I asked God why this was allowed? The answer I got, was that Mom
was the strongest of all the women it happened to, & she would be the one that would come forward and put an end to the nightmare that so many
endured! I then understood, but my heart still broken for her!
I asked Mom how she was feeling, she said she felt ashamed! The first thing I told her, it's not your fault this happened! She said she knows, but
it still leaves you ashamed it happened!
When visiting hours started in the morning until they were over at night, Mom was never alone during the day, and early evening - but we couldn't be
there to protect her from the predators of the night!
This sick man, hurt not only my Mom, but all of us, in one way or another!
Everyday of Mom's life she prayed Faithfully for everyone! Now she needs our prayers so she may be healed emotionally from this terrible ordeal!
So if ever you have loved ones in a Nursing Home or Hospital & they are acting up & not themselves - keep asking questions they may tell you whats
I Thank You For Listening & Praying For My Mom, May God Richly Bless You For Doing So!
In Love & Light Angel
