Today was a bad day. Mom had a seizure, an allergic reaction to the antibiotics, and some fluid buildup that made us unable to give her as much ice (because of fears of pneumonia). It was an all around miserable day for her. But, after benadryl, morphine, and seizure medication she slept hard for a lot of the day. We are grateful for that! All of these issues set her back in speech and other areas of progress. This is just hard.
But tonight she is literally clinging to the cross…a small wooden cross that her friend Susie Lyons gave her! Nothing to do but cling on days like this.
We thank God for:
- precious visitors to pray over Mom
- provision of healthy meals for us in the hospital by precious friends who provided hotel rooms for us early on…and again tonight as we hit another setback. With the hospital being 40 minutes away from my parents home its hard for the night shift and morning shift!
- We have all begun to take turns…and take rests (which is good).
Please pray for a NEW and brighter day tomorrow! And sweet rest for my Mom tonight with NO setbacks.
