J visited again today. It's official we can start telling people about the breakup.
Dad was looking a lot better this afternoon. I am a bit concerned that the fluids coming out has almost doubled since doctor did the stitches (!). It makes my heart sore, cos it feels like a step back. But we can only be patient. I'd rather the doctor didn't go in there again. I will prefer to work with prayer. His temp went up really high last night again. Lord, please can there be no more infection, please can my dads colon heal.
Dad got a bit sad today, talking about Nathans birthday. It was nice tonight as dad got some extra visitors, Carl and Robbie and Lorraine.
They are changing his central line and dressing tomorrow.
Thank you Lord for listening to our prayers, please also help the other families in ICU.
Please send down the healing light of the holy spirit to bathe over my dads body and heal him from within.
Thank you Lord.
Thank you for the strength I get every day to keep going. Thank you.
Dad had a huge soft spot for his grandson Nathan. It was wonderful to see how close they were and how he was able to be so affectionate with him, in a way he don't remember him being with us.
He had a tear in eye when he spoke of Nathan's upcoming birthday. He was so sad that he wouldn't be able to attend. He said with a shaky voice that this might be the last birthday he sees. We brushed it off and told him not to think like that. But he was right.
