"Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15

We're in the Home Stretch

Good Morning,
Bethany had a really good afternoon and evening yesterday. She was awake all day yesterday and looked extremely exhausted, yet she just couldn't fall asleep. Just plain uncomfortable. She never complained, but it was just sad to witness. In order for her to be remotely comfortable, she is completed drugged--fully conscious, able to hold a conversation, but very lethargic. She is very frustrated when she wants to text because her vision is very blurred and her hands don't cooperate. I've had to take her phone away because she ends up crying in frustration.

Mary, our nurse, gave Bethany numerous sleeping aids, and they would work for a little while, and then she would awake. When the doctors came this morning, they advised her sleeping aid be doubled. She then slept until 10:30 am. Which, in turn, means I slept until 10:30 or so. Ahhhh.

The doctor also said she looked good (tell me something I don't already know), and that the nurse should clamp her drain around noon for 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes, the drain will be removed, and we'll pray for the best. Woo Hoo! I am definitely expecting the best case scenario.

Thank you so much for your continued prayers on Bethany's behalf. We know that the Father of the Universe is holding her in His arms and intervening on her behalf.

Blessings and peace, I will keep everyone posted again this afternoon,

Love, Shari and Bethany
