Prayers for my family please.....

Granny and Grandaddy at our wedding 5 yrs ago.

This is a first for me. Don't really even know what to say really. Tonight around 9:30pm my dad called me and said he had just got home from Corpus and that the move of my grandparents to a more 24 hour care facility went well, but Granddaddy's blood pressure had dropped significantly and he was rushed the ER by EMS. He is not doing well. The Dr. has told my family that his body is shutting down and they gave him 24 hours.
A little grandparents had to move out of their home almost 2 years ago and they moved into a smaller home. They still needed constant care. Granny needs someone to make her take her medicine and use her oxygen and grandaddy needed someone to help him get around, get to the restroom, oxygen, etc. Slowly...things have been getting worse....they have both taken a couple bad falls and they recently went to 24 hour care at their home. It just wasn't working...they needed to be somewhere else where an RN could take care of them and get all the care they were needing. So this weekend was yet another move. Everything was fine and Granny did really well with the transition but not Grandaddy. I talked to my sister tonight and she said that maybe now that Granny was being taken care of that he felt like he could go. They have always been together, ALWAYS! I'm not quite sure how to deal with this....I've NEVER in my life had someone pass away that was family or someone that I was really close to. I feel like someone has hit me in the stomach. Please pray for my family and most of all pray for my Granny. I don't know how she will deal with this.....Brian and I will be heading to SA this week and then on to Corpus. I will try and keep u guys updated. Thank you so much for the prayers. (sorry if I'm rambling or not making any sense..)
