2/21/08

mike wakes me around 5 am for a pain pill most mornings (for the ankle pain he still experiences). i am not really talkative at that hour generally and he is usually quiet from dry mouth and inaction. so it was all the more striking when mike shared a few sentences aloud. he said, “praise God, he is so good, he is so wonderful.” it was such unexpected fun at such an unexpected hour. at other times during the day he is struck more by the frustration of waiting for healing and progress and asks me to pray with him for these things. so I will keep that outburst of worship tucked in my head. it is also so great to hear so many sentences pushed out by sheer will without having that open trach hole covered with a hand. But most of the time days go by with a lot of monotonous tv watching and a few faithful visitors a week. mike has also described feeling trapped by this seemingly neverending waiting and marking the hours by reruns. He is not down or depressed but it is a discipline to remain grateful for each moment given. Thanks for such faithful prayer and unexpected graces,
michelle
