Chris said he is really worn out. He is more tired than he has been up to this point. They are trying to schedule medication so that Chris will be able to sleep for solid blocks of time.I guess there was some type of “Fat Tuesday” celebration today. I don’t know what King Cake is but Pat G. brought some today, among other treats. I have never been to Mardi Gras or even thought about celebrating it. Is there typically a group prayer time involved in the “Fat Tuesday” celebration? Well it was done today!
Try to remember back to your childhood. Hopefully you had a father around. Do you remember faking like you were asleep on the couch or in the car just so that your Dad would have to carry you to bed? Well I did it all the time. I felt such security when my Dad was home, I just slept better. Whether we were in a tent, hotel, relatives house or car, I always felt comfortable enough to fall asleep without worry. Even when I was in college I happened to stay at my Dad’s house once or twice. I have never slept more soundly. It can only be experienced and words can’t fully describe this connection and security. Tonight I pray that Chris has it. His Dad Darell will be on a mattress on the floor beside him. Dad will wake up every time Chris stirs. Dad and Chris’ heavenly father will see him through the night.
God Bless You All,
Dave (on behalf of Chris and Family)
