LIFE IN INTENSIVE CARE
Monday, March 26
Being a patient in the hospital is not fun. Oh my, what a stressful place to be. Being the spouse of the patient is also stressful. It is the spouse's responsibility to be the patients advocate. I find that I am like a mother hen hovering over her chick. I guess he's my rooster chick.
Right now, John is resting comfortably. They did try to have him breathe on his own, reducing his sedation drugs and it just did not work. He just was not ready today. Tomorrow is another day and they may try tomorrow.
On the positive side, Dr Duncan stated that when this is all over and done John will be back to the place he was prior to this horrible episode. What a piece of good news that is! God at work as usual!
Our daughter Holly the physician feels comfortable enough to proceed with her family vacation time to San Antonio tomorrow. That in itself is so assuring. And I encouraged her to go knowing that is what John would want.

John has pneumonia. Holly is on the road. We are texting and I am wishing she were here. But she will never know that.
God is still good.
