It's like looking through some bizarre lens.
A week ago today our oldest son (the one that moved out recently), was admitted to Intensive Care. It's been a hard week and I'm not up to sharing all the when, where and why stuff but I will say that he was not responsive and near death when I was called to the ER Friday night. Once stable, we were told that he may not have full brain function.
After a scary couple of days, he is awake and doing very well and expected to fully recover. His mom however has been a bit of a wreck. I can't explain the run of my emotions this week. I often feel like the world is swirling about around me and I'm still, watching it all... Only one thought in my mind... Only one topic of discussion... My boy.
Although we feel a bit hung out to dry, God is faithful even when we are too exhausted to recognize it. We are so grateful for our son's life and for the close friends who have been here to help with the kids and late nights. This weekend we will rest and bask in the faithfulness of God!
He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. (Psalm 91:4)
