The most amazing thing happened. To some it may seem nothing or very small but to me it was big.
Al never gave up the moaning. Well, wait, he did sleep for about half an hour this evening. It was medicine time for him. I tried talking to him. I listened to his speeding heart. He got all his medications. I checked his catheter and irrigated it. I placed him on his side. I even lotioned his feet and massaged them.
The entire time he is rambling on. I couldn’t understand a thing he said, but said yes to much I heard. When I could do no more I asked him, ” Do you want me to say a prayer for you?”
He said very plainly, yes. I took one of his hands in mine. With my other hand I rubbed his forehead. I started praying. Here is where the amazing thing happened.
Before I got the first sentence out of my mouth, Al closed his eyes. I kept praying. His eyes never opened and he went to sleep. He is sound asleep. It is amazing, absolutely amazing. God helped him get some much-needed rest through the touch of my hands and the words out of my mouth.
Thank-you God, for how ever long it last tonight, thank-you.
Wait, I think I hear him. Yes, it is him. Well, he got one hour of peaceful sleep. Well off to his room again to say another prayer.
