Photohunt - Light


Like a candle light, my mother-in-law has lighted up the lives of many..... right now that light is slowly extinguishing .......

On Wednesday night, my 92-year-old mother-in-law was rushed to the hospital. She suffered a stroke and is now bedridden.

She has been placed in a Geriatric Ward where you see the most depressing sight. The frail elderly patients look so helpless and miserable in their beds..... many have tubes sticking all over them. There is little cheer and every one just wants to go home........

I don't want to be in such a state. It is so painful ...... for the sick and their loved ones.

  13. I'm sorry to hear about your MIL... I used to volunteer my time for the Geriatric ward for over 2 years and it is a sad place and I always tried my best to give them whatever I could in the way of smiles and hugs and an ear to their stories whenever they were feeling blue... I will say a prayer for you and your family.
