Prayers needed

Friday morning my Grandpa was placed in ICU. We are just now starting to get answers, which is good but it just seems like something new just keeps showing up. Please take a second and pray for him please. Pray for my family, for strength and rest. He got moved to a hospital 1 hr away so everyone is having to travel back and forth.
