This is Sarah again tonight. Just wanted to give another quick update.
Dave stayed over night with Chris last night and it sounds like Chris was able to get some good sleep off and on. Each time he’d wake up, he’d ask Dave if he was okay. He really is just concerned about everyone besides himself.
He has been having a little more pain which means increasing pain meds – but he said the pain seemed to be under control today. In fact, he seemed to have quite a bit of energy today – he even went for two walks outside (including one with Brenden and Jaxson)! He said he was able to take pretty good naps today between 10-12 and 2-4:30, so he thought that was what gave him the extra energy.
He was really “holding court” during his afternoon visitor time (12-2) today – he was offering everyone chocolates and cracking jokes left and right and entertaining all of us! He’s so at peace that he’s really only concerned about his visitors. In fact tonight while we were visiting with him in his room, the doorbell rang and Chris darted out of bed to go answer the front door.
Thank you once again for the blog comments, prayers, and visits! We continue to read all of the blog comments to Chris.
Please note that Chris is no longer answering text messages on his cell phone and rarely has his phone turned on for calls.
Sarah (on behalf of Chris and his family)
