14th May

It became quite stressful trying to get Jane comfortable in bed last night as due to pain from pressure points she could not find a way to relax. We’ve been supplied a frame to enable her to sit upright but it was around 1am before she found a suitable position, and I’d begun to wonder if we’d be up all night. Anyway after that she had a really good few hours solid sleep which was a little unexpected and very welcome. But this morning she needed to get through a shower and hair wash and that was so much of a physical challenge that the anxiety pills had to be used for the first time.

We are being looked after though as my father turned up with his regular supply of strawberries and cream and a weekend paper. Jane’s found that she can no longer eat cereal so after a little softening in the microwave a few strawberries make a very acceptable breakfast. And our daughter turned up with her boyfriend carrying ingredients to make a particularly appetising home-made soup. And they really were good to see today! We’re so blessed with our children and their perfect choice of partners.

Psalm 70:1 ‘Please, God, rescue me! Come quickly, Lord, and help me.’ (NLT)
