Please send up prayers for my husband's friend Mark.
My husband just received a call from him, where he is afraid of dying & asking for prayers.
Mark is alone in a small rural town in North Texas and has no family. He is also considered mentally 'slow' & does not understand what is happening to him.
From the conversation my husband just had with him (while driving home from work), Mark is saying that he was placed in a Nursing Home because he is unemployed and the hospital knew he couldn't pay the bill. He says that for over a month he was seeing a doctor for headaches, back, leg and arm pain and was treated for constipation (which he said he didn't have), until a week ago he was unable to walk and called an ambulance.
The diagosis seems to be 'a spine infection' where he was sent to the Nursing Home to receive abx and then have 6 weeks of 'therapy.' My husband doesn't know what to ask, so that's all the informaton he gave me when he got home from work.
My husband is going to visit Mark tomorrow and see if he is willing to give me his medical power of attorney so I can, at least, look over his medical records; and, he will make sure his dogs and home are being cared for.
Mark is a beautiful and kind soul, who has retained a childlike quality. He has no understanding of what is happening to him and would appreciate (and has requested) prayers being said on his behalf since he has so few people in his life.
Thank you, all nurses.
