The Long Haul

Just a quick update on Mom. She is in a regular room today and her spirits are not as good. They have also put her on oxygen as she is wheezing a bit. She is very tired and said she needs to sleep but she doesn't wanna go to sleep. We discussed this with the doctor and she said it's most likely a result of her pain medication and she said she would give her a sleeping pill with her meds tonight to help her rest. I would say today is not a bad day, and while it's not as good as yesterday we'll take it and continue to trust God's will. Shasta is planning on spending the next couple of nights here at the hospital with her.

We did talk to the doctor and she said that she does have a long way to go but she's not in immediate danger and the major concern right now is her foot and how much she is going to lose due to the infection. This is going to be a long process and I am trying as much as possible to keep a positive mindset but it is difficult and there are time when I wish I could runaway and hide. I am extremely grateful that my brother is here and words can't express how much my wife means to me right now. Thank you to everyone who has prayed, called and visited. Please continue to do those things, but most especially we covet your prayer.
