I too enjoy those quiet nights once everyone is settled in. I too remember what it is like to go on auto pilot and just do what needs to be done. I haven't had to deal with such an incapacitating tragedy, but dealing with physical side affects or after affects can seem endless when you are in the midst of them. These are or can be life altering. I know your comments have died down now that the "emergency" has passed, but life has changed for you changing what once was. Even though you may feel alone in this battle, you aren't. Say "YES" to offers of help, but say "Jesus" when they aren't there. HE will never leave you or forsake you, even when it feels like the world has. Your family is continually in so many peoples prayers. Keep your prayin' teeth in Toben, God's word will not come back void.

Praying for good days for you Joanne. I know this is a tough journey but you are one tough lady! :)

Lifting you up to Daddy, for peace, comfort, pain free and total freedom in Him.

Just enough light for the step you're on. I don't know who said it, but whether we want to admit it or not, that's where we all are. You're doing a great job of figuring this stuff out as you - and using grace as your measuring stick.
