Holding his own

I spent most of the day at the hospital with Bob today. They tried to take him off the ventilator for a few hours in the afternoon and he did well then got tired. The Dr. will try again Thursday. Both of my kids came in form New Jersey to visit him . The hospital is not close to where any of us live and it makes visiting hard. I got a lot of support from my kids and in my heart I know Bob did also. He had a very sweet and caring nurse which makes it much easier for me to leave him there.

Oh, Frances!

I spoke with The Knitter and we're all praying for you and Bob. We are here for you if you need us.

I hope that things look up for you. Know that there is a community of knitters out here pulling for both of you, and we are a powerful force. Sending you lots of love from PA.

Hi, Fran--
I left a message on your home phone this morning, and left my home and work numbers. Please give me a call if you need anything or just need to vent. I've put Bob on a prayer list I'm on, and you are in my thoughts.

Hey...I can't get you guys out of my thoughts. Just wanted you to know you, Bob and the kids are in my thoughts and prayers. I talked to my MIL today and she put you guys on the prayer list at her church. If you need anything, give me a holler. :)

So sorry to hear about your husband. I'm thinking of you and hoping things improve quickly.
