Mare had a restless night. The three angels from St joes were up most of the night trying to make mare comfortable. I got another full nighs sleep. Felt so good.
The mask was really giving mare fits this morning. I called the repiratory therapist and she was here very quickly. We tried several things and ended up putting on one of her old masks. She told mare the reason the machine ramps up and gives her too much airs is due to all the talking she is doing. Whenever we have to remove the mask it is quite scary for her. She is unable to breathe in a very short time off the machine.
I got a call early this morning from a dear friend Terry who just got back from palm springs. He was visiting our other friends pam and john carl. John has cancer and is home now and hospice is involved. He and Marilyn were given a benefit tennis tournament last year in october i think. It is so odd that they are both at this point of their battles. Terry told me how much he appreciated me writing this. His call was a great way to start the day. It is good for me as well. Terry's wife said that God was going to hit the jack pot when he calls both of them home. May John and Pam have a restful and peaceful sleep.
My good high school buddy brian came up from california to show us his new baby. I was his best man and lauren sang in his wedding. My son Brian is named after him. His father and mother in law and his wife cynthia were here too. His Father in law is a pastor in mexico. He prayed for me, marilyn and the enitire family. Even though it was all in spanish, it was a pretty cool moment.
Mare use to work in the childbirth center in bham. She was very good at that job and misses holding those babies. She told me the other day she is touch starved. When i gave the baby to her and layed in next to her, put her arms around it and allowed the little kyler to grab mares finger, i lost it. The emotions of seeing the beginning of life and the end of life all at once were too much for me. The look on Mares face was incredible.
Two more angels staying to watch over mare tonight. May mare have a restful and peaceful sleep.
