Monday January 17th, 2011

Rough couple of days for Nick (all of us really). For some reason Nick is becoming very combative at times, especially in the late night. When I got here this morning they had him in this like rolling recliner/bed thing behind the nurses station, because they were afraid he would hurt himself. He also was saying this morning he couldnt see? Not sure if that is coming and going right now.

They have him pretty well sedated right now. The Doctor just left. They will increase pain meds and also add Thorazine (a heavy duty sedative) as needed. He had just a brief moment this morning when he knew I was here and he started crying. Everyone here at Hospice assures me that this is all part of the process. I guess because I have never had to witness "the process" it is very difficult to wrap my mind around it.

Now the Thorazine should hopefully keep Nick sedated enough so he is able to find the place of peacefulness and sleep, and so he will not be a danger to himself. However, we will have to wait and see as Nick does not seem to respond typically to things as he should. Pray it will work for him.

We play praise and worship music all day long in room 504. Just keeping this place filled with the presence of the Most Holy One. Trusting that as we are walking through this fire our Protector keeps us from getting burned. The flames are so high right now and they are surrounding us, but we feel safe. Praise God for His light during these darks times!!!

I know you are all still on this journey with us every step of the way, we feel your prayers and love everyday.

Give your burdens to the Lord, and He will take care of you. He will not permit the Godly to slip and fall. Psalm 55:22 NLT

Basking in the comfort of our Lord,

The Badidas
