I was up at the ungodly hour of five this morning.  Since I keep missing the doctors, I felt that I needed to shower and be at the hospital by seven o'clock.  And I was right.  

I drove through a thundershower accompanied with fog and an unbelievable lack of visibility.  Choosing to forgo  Interstate 65 into Indy, I took a much less, but much darker route this morning.  It was a bit nerve racking, but I made it.  And I beat the doc!

Being a resident, she did not have much to say, but I just felt better knowing that she was on top of the situation.  The "big doc" was in later.  

They turned off the ventilator, but left John intubated.  For a while, John was breathing normally, but just like last time, the longer he went, the harder it was for him to breathe.  They finally turned the vent back on, sedated him again and said they will try again tomorrow.

On a positive note,  when John is not so heavily sedated he can purposefully respond to commands and questions.  For that, I am very thankful.  

I did ask him if he was ready to leave for Joshua Tree Nation Park and he nodded an emphatic YES!  

The other event of the day ....... when I drove down the road to our place, there was a for sale sign in the front yard!  Oh my, it all is happening at one time!  Wouldn't it be super if John came home from the hospital to a SOLD sign!  Now that is a dream!  

Tomorrow, I'm up again at that ungodly hour of five and heading to the hospital.  We will see what God has in store for us then.  

Thanks so much for all your encouraging words, good wishes and especially your prayers.  

I still can say that God is Good.  His timing is perfect.  

May He bless each and every one of you during this Holy Week.  



  1. I will continue to keep both of you in my thoughts...

  2. Keep the positive attitude girlfriend! John sold...all is good!
    Blessings abound to you two during this most Holiest of all weeks! ~wheresweaver

  3. Love John's spirit and focus! Even in and out of the foggy meds, he knows he wants to be with you and get on the road!

    1. Thanks Karen, I had lost sight of that. You are so right, every time I talk to him about getting in the motorhome and going, his eyes light up and he follows my commands so much more than other times. I missed that completely! Wow!
