Today’s shift with Ryan was rather interesting (not really), as he slept the entire time. He may have opened his eyes for all of about 15 minutes, but slept for the better part of 8 hours, and he was asleep when I left. Needless to say, my yoke was really easy today.
Truth be told, it’s not really all that easy to watch your injured/helpless child, not knowing whether or not he’s suffering (either physically and/or mentally). The best I can hope and pray for is that the meds are working the way they’re supposed to, and God is using His almighty power to comfort him. And, I believe my hopes and prayers (or should I say our hopes and prayers?) are working, because Ryan looks very comfortable. And, I hope in some way that I can assist God in Ryan’s recovery by observing and researching and soliciting, etc. My intent is to find some research program that would be interested in taking Ryan on as a case study to not only help Ryan, but also further the understanding of his injury to the benefit of others.
If any of you know, or hear of, any programs/research centers/universities/etc. that you feel fits this profile, please let me know. Who knows? We may just be able to speed up the process for Ryan’s recovery. I can’t just sit around and do nothing…
Proverbs 6:9-11 How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest— and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.
