Light in the Darkness

Light in the Darkness

He has given some hand squeezes, a couple of thumbs-up, a tiny wave of his hand, one finger-pointing, and a few head nods and shakes to communicate to the staff and us, providing us all with much-needed reassurance that he’s still there, through mostly-closed eyes. He is here, he is stable, and he is so kind as to offer to share his blanket to cover my cold feet as I sit vigil with him (and catch up on work.) We are grateful for the outpouring of support we have received in the form of food, coffee, chocolate, tea, and bubbly water. Keep it coming, folks, we’re going to be here a while.
