Prayers for Nai Nai please!

Hi everyone,

Last night I had to face something that I've absolutely feared would happen. My mom had
a small stroke. As we were having our traditional dinner at my in-laws last night (my mom has been going
with us for the last few years) she had a stroke. She was admitted into the hospital this morning and has been undergoing assorted tests for much of the day. We still don't have "all" the results back yet, however, she is very, very, weak and can not get around on her own. Now I don't know about your mamma's, but mine is very independent. So for her not to be able to get around is major.
Please pray that God gives her strength, patience, and perserverence to get through this obstacle. So far I've been strong, but fear has crept in tonight. Leaving her at the hospital & seeing her lie in the bed, well I just lost it. So please pray that God gives me strength and wisdom to get through the coming days. Also, please pray for my daughter Emmi. She just loves her Nai Nai dearly. It's so hard seeing her reaction to all this. I know she's worried and
scared. Nai Nai traveled to China with me to bring Emmi home in 2000 as well as Maggie in 2003. She's a tough mamma, but definately needs all your prayers. I'm an only child so we're all very close.
Mom stayed with us last week and made cookies with the girls. Everything seemed fine and I
would never have thought that a week later this would happen. I trust in God's plan and know that He is in complete control. We're walking with Him and taking one day at a time.

God bless,



  1. You have my prayers. I found my sister dying from a stroke in 2004, so take heart that your mother's stroke was in your company and could be treated immediately. I know the range of emotions you're going through right now, and will pray that God touches both you and your mother at this time, providing whatever you need to move forward.


  2. Praying hard for you and your family Anita!

    Blessings and Peace to you all!


  3. Praying hard for you, Anita!
