It amazing how your world can hinge on one or 2 people. Sleep was fleeting last night. Several emergency surgeries, accidents so there were many people waiting on loved ones in surgery. My head was trying to hurt ~ please pray it flees and doesn't return.
I got up and asked this morning if I could come in and see Max. The "rules" are no one until 9 am but since I've been here they have let me in for a few minutes. The desk told me that his nurse would be out when he was done and talk with me. About 45 minutes went by and another person asked about their loved one. The desk got back to them with an update from the same nurse as Max's. When I asked again, I was tole the same thing. Fear, Fear, Fear is sometimes the hardest thing to put down. When I left last night Max was somewhat high feverr and was restless. I asked again, same answer. Pastor Jackson posted a psalm on facebook before I could talk to the nurse. It's Psalm 34:1-8
I will extol the LORD at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.
2 I will glory in the LORD;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
3 Glorify the LORD with me;
let us exalt his name together. 4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
6 This poor man called, and the LORD heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
8 Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
His nurse came out and told me that every thing went well last night. He rested, his temperature came down. I'm looking forward to his tracheotomy going well and that his arm will be sewn back together today. Once the tube is out of his throat I know he will be more content.
In all things pray & in all things give thanks for God is the one holding us up.
