At dinner this evening, my dad started talking about his father back in Chile, (I haven’t seen him since I was really young.) he said that he thinks that he is “loosing the will to live.” Apparently he is loosing his hearing and doesn’t want hearing-aids. Because he can’t hear people, he has difficulty speaking with them and thus withdraws from them. Additionally, he doesn’t like going out for walks and so he stays home, this makes his legs weak, and thus, he needs help getting into bed every night, this makes him depressed.
My dad thinks he’s nearing the end of his life, while my mom says people in that state can live quite awhile longer. Either way, please pray for the wellbeing of both his life and soul, and pray also, that he can receive whatever help he needs.
