Two weeks ago today I drove frantically to the hospital not knowing what was wrong with Jason, just that a family member was urgently needed there as soon as possible. I have prayed and prayed and told the LORD that I accept His will...I only ask that He help me get through it, whatever it is. He's had a few small surgeries the past couple of days including the placement of a cava filter. He had a tracheotomy and a g-tube for nutrition put into his stomach yesterday and he started getting that this morning. The ventilator tube is now placed into his trach and was taken out of his mouth which means that they were able to clean up his face and he looks so much better. For that reason we decided it was time for Alex to see his cousin today and we took him into the room with the consent of his nurse and my brother in law, Jack.
It was very sweet when Alex saw him, he held his hand and said, "Hi Jason, it's me Alex...get better and come home soon, I miss you...." and then Jason's head moved from side to side ever so slightly but enough to know that he was somehow responding to his little cousin. He's been taking one breath over the ventilator on his own every so often.
Through all of this and everything going on with my mom's diagnosis I feel that my faith will overcome my fear of what is to come.
Thank you to everyone that is praying for our family, I am so grateful.
