It is almost midnight and Joel is just starting to fall asleep. He was wide awake this evening; the good thing is that he snacked all evening. He was busy making up for all the fasting.
Today was a day. It snowed today. Joel had a great morning…a rough afternoon and a good night. He is getting worse each time he comes out of sedation; yesterday, I thought it couldn’t possibly get any worse. He proved me wrong again, today. It was so hard to see him struggle and be powerless to help him. I know this is just for a time and that this, too, will pass… but it is hard to walk through it.
When it rains, it pours, or snows. My parents have been filling a huge void at our house, they have been taking care of the kids, making meals, doing laundry etc…, making it possible for Dave to go to work. This morning, my Dad went out our front door and fell on the front steps. I spoke to him just after Joel went in for radiation and he said he was sore, but okay.
Later in the afternoon my Mom found him looking very pale, sweaty, and complaining of dizziness. They ended up calling an ambulance because my Mom didn’t feel safe taking him by herself in case he passed out on the way to the car. They discovered that my Dad broke his hip; so, he is spending the night in the hospital and I will find out more tomorrow what they are planning on doing and when.
I would love it if you all could pray for my Dad (Denis) for healing and peace, and my Mom (Mary) who is working hard at holding down the fort. (Of course for Joel too, tomorrow is his last day of radiation in the afternoon, on Thursday he will be going around 9 am).
Thanks for all your love and support!Pin It
