Prayers for Mom

My mom is in the hospital again. This time she has been retaining water, in her lungs. They’ve already drained 750 mL of fluid. They’ve also discovered that her heart has sustained some serious damage, possibly in an heart attack that occurred without my mother knowing. Today she is having an angiogram and later this week it is very likely that she will be having heart surgery to put some new valves in her heart.

It seems like my mom is always sick these days. Please pray for her health, but more importantly for the conversion of her heart and that she would receive and respond to the grace to participate in the Sacraments: Confirmation, Confession, Holy Communion, and Anointing of the Sick.

Heart of Jesus, have mercy.
Heart of Mary, pray for us.
