Please do not think of your life as burden. Everyone deserves care in time of need. God bless you and your family.

Greetings all.
I am seeking prayer for my wife (Diana), family, friends, and me.
My health is not improving as all have been praying and hoping.
I have End Stage COPD, congestive heart failure, diabetes with complications, AFib heart, and a bunch of others. I am currently in home hospice with hospice staff coming every 2-3 days to adjust medications and do exams.
The worse part is that I can not walk nor get out of bed without help. I need someone to help me move all the time. I am on oxygen 24/7/365, and I am on a Trilogy ventilator with oxygen that helps my lungs to function better and removes carbon dioxide from my lungs.
My wife and I are alone now (our 2 sons died recently 2014, & 2015), and my wife is my only caregiver. I am 68 years, and she is 65 years old in fair health. We do not have family or friends visiting due to their ages and illnesses. Churches which I minister at have had lots of changes since we were going to church. Last time we could go to church was in 2009 before I was in the accident which crippled me pretty bad. Lots of friends have moved to other states, etc. I believe I have more friends on the other side of death than are alive and on this side of death.
Being alone and also she does not have a drivers license nor do we have a car, she has to walk to go anywhere. The grocery store, pharmacy, doctors office are only 1/2 mile away (which isn't bad for her except in winter), and she limited to how much she can carry or cart back home. We use a lot of online ordering.

That's a general idea. I am a tremendous burden to her and all this is certainly stressing her to the maximum. The hospice has increased my medications to make "my last days more comfortable". Well, this may be true but what about my wife and family. I have become such a burden to them.
I pray and asking for prayer unto GOD to bring wisdom and peace to our situation so that it will be resolved for my wife, family, and me in the best way that will glorify GOD and increase the Kingdom of GOD.

GOD bless you and yours and may GOD keep all safe
