Grandma and I spent Friday night and part of Saturday with Mike so that Mom could tend to matters at home. It was good to see some progress, although minimal. We hold out hope each day that all the equipment and medications he needs to keep his body functioning will not cause permanent damage. We won't know that outcome for a while.
Situations like this sure make you think.. One minute you can be a happy and healthy person. The next minute can have a team of experts discussing which issue to deal with first.
It was good to see Mike again after almost a week on the homefront. A day without bad news is a good day. He is tolerating all the treatment well and hanging in there like a trooper. I didn't get my smile yet, but a few more days like this and we will get there.
They say God doesn't give you more than you can handle. I believe this and have been using this as my credo (and Mike's) for the past few weeks.
