Why is it that the time we spend with the ones we love the most seems to pass so quickly? Hours turn to minutes. Years pass and seem like only days when we stare back at our life events. And yet, when sickness or other obstacles separate us, time drags endlessly and painfully by.
When Christal told me the night before last that she’d awakened scared, was confused, and couldn’t breathe, it gripped me hard. She had been doing so much better. The day before she had been full of energy, could breathe, and was drawing again. The doctor and nurses believe she simply exhausted herself and was trying to do too much, too soon. I imagine that would be hard not to do.
I just talked to her via FaceTime and her color has returned. She’s optimistic and able to breathe much better than yesterday. The Respiratory Therapist said that she’s doing really well and that’s positive news. Her oxygen levels are in the optimal place and that seems to be the case throughout the day. What’s most important is for her to rest and sleep as much as she can.
Her improvement is also due to all your wonderful family and friends who are praying for us and reaching out to us. It means the world to us.
Please keep praying! We love you all!
