There are times.............

...........when the only thing to do is lean on the Lord and allow him to lead the way.  It's too bad it has to be a crisis before we as humans allow that but that's just the way we are.

Right now that's where we are.  Yesterday I asked them to please not concentrate so much on his numbers as his comfort.  They couldn't give him sleeping aids nor pain killers because it would mess up his blood pressure.  After 3 nights of no sleep he was delirious and I'm sure the pain didn't help much.  Turns out there's a name for that - Comfort Care.  They immediately went into action and he got some sleep and some pain relief.  This puts his care into an entirely different category and outcome.  I think the Lord gave me that decision and I wait to see what will happen today.

Your prayers and good thoughts are special treasures.  I will continue to keep you updated if I can.
