Need advice and prayers

I know some have gone through this so I need a little help. My mother who is 66 was diagnosed with dementia. We are hopefully are early on and she is just about to start medications to slow it down. We were told two years ago this may be coming then she got what I think now is bad advice and some docs were just like “we will just watch it”, so we never started meds. Now she has my dad who is healthy so I am greatful for that, but I am very close to my mom and can’t stop worrying. My daughters are 5 and spend lots of time with her and so I am so scared of telling them one day soon their gma is sick and will not get better. I don’t know how many good years we have left, hopefully several but I just don’t know, but I can’t stop worrying. I want to create good memories over the next year or two but I am obsessively worrying.

To make matters worse she got the dreaded post mammogram letter and has to go back for further testing. She had breast cancer 16 years ago and stays up on her check ups but this has us worried even more.

Prayers and advice would be greatly appreciated.

[INDENT]Prayer to St. Peregrine

O great St. Peregrine,
you who have called “The Mighty,” “The Wonder-Worker”
because of the numerous miracles which you have obtained from God
for those who have had recourse to you,
you who for so many years
bore in your own flesh this cancerous disease
that destroys the very fiber of our being,
and who had recourse to the source of all grace
when the power of man could do no more;
you who were favored with the vision of Jesus
coming down from His Cross to heal your affliction,
ask of God and Our Lady,
the cure of jago1099’s mother, whom we entrust to you.

Aided in this way by your powerful intercession,
we shall sings to God, now and for all eternity,
a song of gratitude for His great goodness and mercy.

Amen.

Prayer for a Miracle

God of all creation, you who spoke a simple command and brought forth light from
the darkness, I ask you now to send forth your miracle-working power to heal jago1099. You cleansed the lepers, opened the eyes of the blind and by
speaking a simple command, you empowered the crippled to rise up and walk.
You sent forth your life-giving power to all those in need, including those you raised from
the dead. I ask you to send forth your healing power into jago1099’s body and give him the strength to fight his illness. I ask this through my Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Take lots of pictures and if you could swing some kind of video of Grandma reading a book to the kids, it will be priceless in a few years.

Our Father,
Who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

This is a wonderful idea.

Praying hard for your mother. My mother had dementia for 11 years and it was very difficult dealing with it for her and us. We all felt relief when she passed because she was finally at peace. It’s a horrible disease that I pray they someday find a cure for.

Wishing your family the best.

Holy Michael the Archangel defend us in the day of battle.
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host,
by the Power of God,
thrust down to hell satan and all the wicked spirits,
who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.
Amen.

Remember, O most loving Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession and was left forsaken. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you I come, before you I stand, a sorrowful sinner. Despise not my words, O Mother of the Word, but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
Amen
