    Hopefully this thread will not be too long for y'all.

    You see my dad left me and my mother when I was two, but his dad, my grandfather stepped up and sort of took that role in my life.
    My grandfather has always been there for me and has always been a strong healthy man, he is also the one who gave me the love of catfishing!!!!! Well he went through a bad bout of illness for a while and is over that, but the doctors said his heart is only working at 45% and he only has upto 5 yrs left if he does'nt get a transplant. Because of his age the doctors said he is not a priority on the transplant list and will probably not get one before his time is up. He still has to work full time even though he is suppose to be resting, and he works in a mill. I can start to see him get very tired, have no energy, and just start to go down hill. If prayers could be sent that God's will be done I would forever be grateful. I hate to see him this way, I would hate even more to lose the closest thing to a dad I ever had, but don't want him to suffer. God Bless all of you who took the time to read this and I want to extend my gratitude to you now I can not say thanks enough.

    Sorry to hear about your grandads health. Will be saying a prayer for him and one for you for taking the time to ask for him. Just put your faith in GOD,he won't give him more than what he can handle. May seem like it but he won't. God Bless and try and get him to take it easy much as posslbe. Take him fishin or something,just to get him away.

    Mike,

    My friend prayers will be lifted up for your Grandfather, you, and the whole family. Life itself is so very short and no one but the Father knows just how long we will be here.

    Your Grandfather is one heck of a good man if you ask me. He took upon himself to do what your Father neglected to do, and that was to raise you with respect, and teach you all the things a good dad, will teach his children.

    Have faith in the good LORD my friend, a HE can change things in a blink of an eye. I have seen his healing power, and I do believe if it be HIS will, your Grandfather will pull through OK.

    Consider it done! I don't always respond to prayer requests, but know that I read the titles and send one out for the poster's request.

    Take care!
