Having been up all night, all Bernadette wanted to do was go home and sleep. Later in the afternoon Marc ran into our pastor, Fr. George, by chance in the halls and Father came and gave Bernadette the Sacrament of the Sick. Naturally she didn’t respond overly well but she eventually cooperated. Even at her lowest she can still give poor Fr. George a rough time. Some things just never change. Sorry, Fr. George.
Right now Bernadette is still in the hospital in Salmon Arm. Marc is staying with her tonight. They’re going to watch her fever closely all night and hopefully if in the morning things have greatly improved due to the Anointing of the Sick (and the antibiotics) then they’ll do the transfusion in the morning. She’ll also receive a second dose of IV antibiotics. Between the Anointing, antibiotics, and transfusion, we should have her back in great shape for Joseph’s visit home for Christmas. Until last week she was extremely excited about seeing big brother again. Hopefully she’ll be feeling well enough that the excitement will return. Step aside Santa, here comes Joseph!
My gosh, what a trying time for all of you. How wonderful that Fr. George just “happened” to be at the hospital. I don’t believe in coincidences , God is the director.
By the way you are not alone in the cracked tooth department. Found out yesterday I have one too. Definitely something no one needs, especially you.
I start my day and end it with prayers for strength, enduring love and faith for you and Marc & your family. For precious Bernadette I pray for as little pain as possible, happiness & peace. I truly hope she will get through this bump in the road quickly. Love, Patricia
