I just returned from the hospital. In the last 30 hours it has become my second home. Patrick is very, very ill. They put him on dialysis tonight. All I can do is pray and ask God to help the doctors get him through this. I spoke at length with three specialists tonight. They wanted me to be aware of how very ill he is and they assured me they are doing everything possible for him.
I am somewhat numb and very tired. I cannot believe that yesterday early afternoon Patrick and I were in Barnes and Noble and tonight he is so very fragile and on dialysis.
This is hard on my poor Mother. Her brother is terminal and she talks with him on the phone every night and now her son is very sick. We need your prayers and I thank each of you for your comments tonight and your prayers. It means so much. I firmly believe in the power of prayer and the strength in numbers. All of you prayed for him in December when he had his emergency open heart surgery and he did well. Thank you for that. Thank you for your friendship and for caring.
I thought I would not be posting, but it is helping me to put these words down. I will update when time permits. I will be heading back to the hospital first thing in the morning.
And now.... tea and then sleep.
