For those of you who have been praying for my grandpa:
I just got word a few minutes ago that he fell in the hospital this morning and broke his hip pretty badly; shattered at the socket. He’s back in Ottawa now, at yet a different hospital (the hospital my first son was born in, actually) and is scheduled for surgery tomorrow. This pretty much seals the deal that he won’t be going home again.
Please pray for guidance for the doctors performing the surgery, and that the surgery itself goes smoothly. Please pray for his healing, that his recovery and rehabilitation would go well. I know they try to get hip patients on their feet ASAP after surgery, even if they don’t weight-bear on the broken hip, depending what kind of hardware gets put in.
Please also pray for my mom and aunt; my mom is discouraged and I’m sure my aunt is as well. Please also pray that arrangements regarding his living situation and house go smoothly as well.
God hears out prayers! I’m sure that God works for the good of those who love Him. After all, what better place to break a hip than a hospital? I’ve heard of people who have lain on their floors for 2-3 days with a broken hip before they were found..Praise God that my grandpa was already in the hospital! I know that God answers prayers, we just have to trust that He knows what He’s doing when we don’t understand it.
