Right now I'm lying in a Hospital bed and it's Christmas morning. Mom has been in and out of lucidity all night. She is on Morphine, Dolatin (or whatever the heck that is) and Adaville (again, not a doctor) but I think it's an anxiety drug. None of those will knock her out. Can you believe that? What a fighter. We will get her calmed down and then 5 minutes later....wham....a screeching, screaming soul comes out for all of the hall to hear. As I feel so sorry for my mother, I also feel very sorry for the rest of the folks on the floor because there is no way they got any sleep either. She is starting to say some audible words which is an improvement from the constant muttering we had ALL day yesterday. So, where do we go from here? Sister, Brothers, and I are just simply at a loss. We aren't sure if this is from severe pain, or fear, or why she is doing this. All I know is she hasn't slept in about 2 days. I believe she is scared to death.....or for death. I want you all to know that I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the e-mails, FB messages, cards and thoughts and prayers you have sent our way.
We are truly blessed with the angels that surround us.
My wish for you is that you have the Merriest Christmas EVER!!!
Please hug your family and tell them how much you love them on Jesus' special birthday.
I would love it if you could post any specific prayers for me. It would mean the world to me and help comfort me in this really difficult time.
