Gail had a very peaceful night. As I write she is still sleeping. She got up twice to go to the bathroom but went right back to sleep again. We have upped her meds for anxiety a bit and that has helped. Also started a liquid IB for pain.
Aaron arrived last night about 8 and will be with us until Sunday. He and Cynthia slept here last night to help out. I slept by Gail's bed as the night before she had gotten up and wandered off so we did not want that to happen and it just seemed that sleeping by her was better than putting the bed rails on which can give a person the feeling of being enclosed. It is interesting how different people can or like to do different things. Everyone can help mother in any way but as time goes on it becomes clear that some things are easier or more difficult for each person to do. God certainly made us in a most unusual manner and I think that is what makes life so interesting.
Pray for healing, pray for peace and pray for family. So far family has been together and on the same page. I know that with serious illness that can be very trying but so far God's peace and love have been so present, pray that continues. If you were to peek in you would not know who are sons and daughters by birth and who are sons and daughters by marriage. Thank you Lord.
People of Praise is having their annual fall celebration today with fun, games and a Lord's Day picnic. I hope the weather holds nice and everyone attending has a grand time. We will be there in thought.
