They're going to re-introduce feeds today in a very small amount so we should know pretty soon wether or not his chylothorax has sealed up enough to withstand feeds. Pray it does!!! of course your going to pray it does, do I really need to ask?
Anyway, besides that, there isn't much new news. I won't bore you with the medical details. I'll save that for the next post.
Please be praying for Reid's family today. Noah and I will be driving to Clinton to go to his funeral this afternoon. My heart just breaks. As I go about my day, doing "normal" things, I sometimes just stop and wonder what they are doing. And I know the answer is they are grieving. Isn't it hard to grasp that as we go about out lives people all over the world are experiencing such immense pain. I have always found it so difficult to grasp that idea, that reality. I do now and really always have found it difficult to disconnect myself from other's suffering. It's not just someone elses. These are people, people just like you and I facing the unbearable.
What can we do? What should we do to comfort the hurting? How can we bring the beauty and light of the nearness of God into dark places? I don't really know.
But I know I want to.
