As a family we experienced the highlight of our week today. A dear friend, Judy Wedge, had offered a while ago to cater a dinner for us and a family to join us. We invited the Anhel family and enjoyed Caser Salad, the best lasagne you can imagine, and yummy yummy dessert. Bernadette wanted me to stay and rub her legs while everyone was eating. Just then an angel arrived in my family room disguised as Wilma! She stayed with Bernadette while I enjoyed the party. It was so wonderful. Then the real highlight was when the Anhel family joined us downstairs in the family room to pray over Bernadette for healing. The prayers of children are very powerful and we were very grateful that the Anhel children were willing to pray with us, and impressed that Bernadette agreed! For those who don’t know the Anhels they have nine children ranging from 18 to two. Tommy is two and Zoe can’t get enough of him. Stephanie is four I think and one of Bernadette’s best friends. Catherine has dibs on Michael and Maria. I would tease Joseph about Holly, the oldest, but I don’t want to lose my night shift help. 🙂
Within minutes of them praying over her, Bernadette was asleep. She woke up a little while later totally miserable, ASKED for some morphine and zonked out again. I’m hoping and praying she’s out for the night. I’ve never seen her quite this miserable before. My heart aches for her.
Tomorrow we might hear the results of the blood work and Dr. Weicker said he’d come check in on Bernadette hopefully in the next day or two. Will keep you posted. In the meantime, here is to sleep. Johanna just came up to get her book and said Bernadette is still sleeping. That’s two hours! Yea!!!!!!!!!!!
…our continued prayers…
