Let me introduce you to a new friend of mine: Wilson (aka Katy’s left hand). This is the name that Katy gave to her left upper-body appendage that currently just lays motionless beside her. If you remember the Tom Hank’s movie Cast Away, you will recognize the origin of this name. Alone on a deserted island, the main character (played by Tom Hanks) has no one to talk to except a volleyball with a contorted face smeared on it. The name of the sports company is also visible on the ball thus accounting for the name. Though non-responsive and useless, Wilson was a constant companion and became Hank’s best friend.
Somehow, Katy came up with the idea of naming her left hand Wilson. Her humor actually seems to be stronger after the stroke than before! We all love the name. As Katy puts it, “He is always there but he constantly disappoints me; he just never does anything.”
It helps to laugh.
Wilson has now become a family friend and the object of much prayer. “Lord, heal Wilson. Bring him to life!” I thought you might like to meet Wilson too and join us in prayer for his healing.
