   BirdsNest  Tuesday Aug 4 he got so bad the doctor asked about a dnr. Hagar told the doctor he wasn't giving up and he meant it. The next day he was fine. Then that Friday he had a bit of respiratory problem.The doctor again asked about dnr. Saturday, no better. Sat evening a friend went to visit. She said I should get over there on Sunday and plan to spend the night. So I caught a ride and stayed the night. the nurses wanted to give me a cot. I said if I am to be here I will watch him from the chair. And I did, I sat up all night and watched him sleep. they put him on a cpap or something like that and he actually slept without moaning and without stress.On Monday he awoke looking like a new man and has been wonderful all week til today. He felt bad he said. He was quiet all day. He has a feeding tube because he won't eat. He went 10 days with no food and with instructions of only ice chips, then he was hungry, now that he CAN have food he doesn't want any. I am going crazy. All week long I have been getting 4-5 hrs sleep so I can catch a ride with a generous man who works in Norfolk. He leaves the shore between 5:30 and 6 am Monday-Friday. Picks me up here and takes me to the hospital. Picks me up when he is done at work(10 hr day ) and drives me to my house. All from a FB request from a friend. She posted the request on Sunday, he responded on Sunday afternoon. She contacted me and gave me his name and number and we made arrangements to pick me up Tuesday. It was such a surprise. He is a lovely man, works at Little Creek in Norfolk. Has a wife(occupational therapist ) and 2 young sons. For his payment he wants eggs and any vegetables I may still have. I had to beg him to accept that.

Each day brings new challenges and new friends. I am blessed. Truely blessed.

   MeiDei  Iacta: Your Mom & Dad - update?

   Iacta alea est  So kind of you to ask Mei. Dad continues on at the re-hab home, getting his dialysis and PT. I took him home for a day last Sunday so he could be with my daughters who are here from Ohio. We had a birthday celebration for his 83rd (july 13, better late than never ) Mom is a different story. She has a hernia the size of a grapefruit on her left side below her breast. It is painful, but she has meds (PTL ) We have seen a general surgeon and are awaiting his assessment. The repair is a fairly common surgery, but Mom's other health issues make the operation more of a risk. So until the surgeon gives us his opinion Mom is as anxious as a long tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs. But having her granddaughters here makes thing a little more cheery. How's by you?

   BirdsNest  Prayers are most welcomed. He is still hospitalized. It's been forever. Still waiting on the pressure sores to heal. They have healed 2", but the wound was to the bone so there is a way to go yet. I am doing my best to keep up.

   BirdsNest  Thank you all for adding Hagar to your prayers. He is doing as well as can be expected. I asked the doctor about the cancer, what is it doing while we are trying to get the pressure sores healed. He didn't have much of an answer for me. Pressure sores HAVE to be healed before chemo. Period. PT has been in the past week working with him, strengthening his legs. He said he stood up yesterday. I am not sure I believe that-he was also talking about Woodstock,and hating his chickens. I think he must have been on some good drugs.

   Straitpath  God is so aware of each of us. I had a miracle happen to me today. It was no coincidence. It involved His putting into my hand something very dear to me which I had believed lost or even stolen. I am humbled and grateful.
