5th May

It’s been a very slow day… very slow. Although she’s relatively comfortable Jane needs continual support. Her breathing is possibly slightly improved today but she’s beginning to get some problems due to immobility, and she’s so weak that any movement is completely exhausting. It’s one more complication to work through… relaxation improves breathing, inactivity leads to increasing weakness, swollen ankles and who knows what more serious problems. Stress is a continual battle and tension is not at all helpful when trying to relax. Hugs work a treat though!

We enjoyed a change of scene this afternoon taking a couple of steps into our conservatory to start our new jigsaw… a painting of a Barcelona flower market. And suddenly we were in southern Europe remembering the city we once visited, though I can’t say the jigsaw is anything like the place we saw. But it does bring back nice memories which although enjoyable as a distraction cannot deliver us from the reality of today. Only the Lord can do that.

Revelation 21:4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.’ (NLT)
