9th May

What a long day. It began around 3.30am when Jane woke quite suddenly, coughing, choking and gasping for breath. It took quite a while to sort out and that gave us an exhausting rather traumatic start to the day. This afternoon took us to Jane’s programmed hospital appointment and again that was a major deal just to get there. We almost gave up the attempt sitting in the car on the driveway it was so difficult for Jane coping with the physical and emotional stress. Prescription morphine eventual did it’s work and we were able to set off.

Totally unexpectedly at the interview Jane was immediately admitted to hospital. Apparently they can now fit a permanent fluid drain into her pleural cavity and consider this to be an urgent need. They say this should help her breathing and improve quality of life. They have no answer to the on-going growth of multiple large lesions in both lungs. She is quite distressed at being back in hospital especially as I’m forced to leave her there. And she’s concerned that she won’t be able to cope particularly with the minor op that’s needed.

So we cry out to you our Lord, have mercy upon your daughter Jane. Be with her right now and through this season of great trial. Anoint her as a comforter, as a friend and as her healer. May she have nursing care as you would care, be her physician, be her surgeon, may she have timely treatment according to your timetable and my God will you heal and completely restore my wife… in Jesus name. Thank you Lord.

Genesis 2:18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.” (NLT)
