Nathan asked "how much longer"..............
I told him that this afternoon it looks like we're going down to a "normal" room and we're leaving ICU and in about a week I get to bring you home.
He looked at me and said "thank you" - :-) , oh - I love that boy!
I'm a bit nervous about them moving him - that means I'm on mom duty full time. His nurse yesterday, Marnell (who I fell in love with - spunky lady, hmm wonder why I liked her) told me that when he gets moved, that we're going to want to stay with him and make sure he's taken care of and that he learns to ask for pain medicine BEFORE he hits his threshold,
Lamentations 3:21-23 "Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning."
PS If I could ask for prayer for myself today - I have a horrid headache and a jaw that is hurting - no pain in comparison to Nathan's, but a bit distracting.
