Soothe the Suffering
Our long lashed boy is continuing to struggle. He had a tonic clonic seizure over the weekend. Thankfully it wasn't as dramatic as those in his past due to a new medication. However it was still sad to see his little body fail him yet again. This particular seizure, while not has long as others, wiped him out. He slept for a few hours after and that night was in bed for fifteen hours.
We are in the midst of unknown. And I hate it. I am trying to focus on the present - the today we have been given. The realist in me wants to plan, to have conditions. We made a short list of fun activities to do in the next month. We will take in two more Nats games and hopefully take a day trip to the beach. Oliver has always loves the waves. There are also a few fall festivals that have become tradition for us.
I have been saying this prayer nightly:
Keep watch, dear Lord with those who work, or watch, or weep this night. And give your angels charge over those who sleep, tend the sick. Lord Christ : give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous, and all for your love sake. Amen
