Today has been a much better day than yesterday. Another patient in the hospital had her church choir in her room singing, and they were soooo good. We walked down the hall to listen, and they were singing "Jesus will fix it"...yes he will. I realize yesterday was a blessing in disguise...the nurses said that now we know that if he is in pain, he will let us know. He communicated in so many ways yesterday...he tried to talk, he nodded his head, and he pointed his finger when I asked him if he was hurting...God has his plan, and nothing is impossible with Him. Today Pastor Bersche came in and said "Hello Rick" and he dropped what was in his hand and stretched his fingers out almost as if to shake hands and tried to say hello...it's just amazing...sometimes when I see these things I think my eyes are deceiving me, but both Pastor and Sherry saw it too, & they aren't crazy...well at least Pastor isn't! I was cleaning Rick's mouth out earlier and when I got through he was trying to take the stick out of my hand, so I gave it to him to see what he would do with it. He moved it towards his mouth and opened his mouth like he was trying to put it in...of course he couldn't quite get there, but it is just wonderful to see him connect the dots! Thank you God for letting us have a joyous day. I know we will have many more to come, and so many people to celebrate with us. God is good, and people are good, too...that doesn't always make the news, but there are so many good people out there.
God Bless you all...thank you for going on this journey with us.
