William’s condition, update on the “after-hours”
I’m so proud to be called, “William’s wife.” That’s been my new name this week and it’s great!
I had the honor of feeding him dinner tonight; which he wasn’t shy to say that the hospital food was nasty! Carter did get to see Daddy tonight and Will’s eyes shone bright as he talked with Cart and gave him high-fives and blew kisses.
The Lord has delivered a miracle to us, William has turned a corner and I can’t even wrap my mind around it. It’s so beautiful. As I spoke to the internist and nurses, they’re slowly helping me understand this part of the healing journey. We entered a new season today. It’s going to be a long road. I’m going to be learning how to be a caretaker for him. While he’s been in the coma, we were able to have lots of supportive visitors in his room without disturbing his healing process. Now that he’s awake, we need him to have peace and rest and lots of down time. The nurses are poking and prodding him all day which is too much for a healing person anyways. It is time to rest.
With that being said, we love you all so incredibly much. He was moved to the neurology floor today and the waiting room is dismal and tiny with only 4 chairs in it. So, we’re not able to be there all day like we have been this week. I will look back on this week and thank God for every person who came to visit. Since visitation is on hold, the way you can help and support is to pray. Please continue to pray as he heals. Please pray for less and less discomfort and confusion for him. I was told that as the medication slowly leaves his body, he will start to remember things better, but until then he is struggling to get back to normal. When he is ready, I promise to let you know as soon as he’s able to have visitors again.
Lastly, another praise to God: The CT scan of his brain showed NO swelling!!! Before I left this evening, the spinal tap culture still showed no results of bugs growing! YIPPEE!!! Truly, God has healed him!!!!
I’m sorry I can’t respond to each text, email, voicemail, etc. Know in your hearts how much joy and encouragement it gives all of us to hear from you. I have been reading every word and holding on to every encouragement. It has been my lifeline. I love you. WE love you.
