Monday evening – update

Dear Friends: This is a nice way to end the day – talking with friends about the man I love. His room in ICU is peaceful and quiet, and he is resting well. That is what he needs, a chance to rest completely and let his body recover. We have no news at this point, because the doctors are letting the medicines and rest have several days to work before they look down into his lungs again and decide what to do next. We are just waiting. My favorite place is right beside him, holding his hand. I am much better today, after having had a good night’s sleep and time to process what has happened. Thanks for your prayers for me. I feel strength that I did not have yesterday. I told God this morning that I really did not want to face this new journey, but I did not want to face the journey 2 1/2 years ago when Kent’s airways were first damaged, and God gave us grace and mercy and showed us how to go. And life has been good – different, but good. So I will just trust Him to show us the way again. Here we go, one day at a time.
