On Christmas Eve...
(First published on CaringBridge, December 2018)
I love our little hospital tree — thank you, Brendan!
Immanuel—God with us. This Christmas Eve, whatever circumstance you find yourself in the middle of, I pray that you know God is with you.
As of today, Chandler only has eight tubes left in him! And he pooped! On our planet, that’s a good thing. They have had him in a seated position a couple of times today, and he tolerated it well. He’s been more awake because the sedation has been reduced some.
Tomorrow they will wake him up fully for a brief period to try and get him to follow commands.
Please pray for Chandler’s mind to be as much at peace as possible when they wake him up and as he experiences more wakeful moments. Pray for our hearts as we watch the inevitable pain and struggles Chandler will need to face in his comeback.
