I prayed before I went to see him, I knew I had nothing I could give to make him feel any better, but asked God to use me in some way.
God ordained my visit, Kathy left the room, the pastor there left the room. I asked my husband to step out and took my brother's hand and cried out to God.
When Kathy came in I again asked about a shot of morphine instead of a pill. She went to find someone and some nurse came in and Kathy asked about a shot and she just looked hesitant and I said, I KNOW YOU CAN GIVE A SHOT OF MORPHINE, HE FEELS THE PILL IS NOT GOING DOWN AND IS IN PAIN!!!
It was 4pm and he still had to wait for the special nutrients they were to give him through his port which wouldn't be there until 6pm.
After I left there I went by to see our momma.
Mom and my sister in law informed me that since my brother has been in the hospital he has been incoherent, when his children came in the room to see him he pushed everyone away.
But when I took his precious small hand he was of clear mind and was talking as always, but just in a weak voice.
I know God answered my prayer, God gave me and my brother this time together, I will cherish this for always.
It was 6pm when they did bring him the nutrients and was feeding him through his port, Jr never knew because he was just totally out.
He will be having the scope today, I hope it is this morning, he could have no liquids after midnight and of course he hasn't had any anyhow because he can't get it down.
What gets me is the doctor or nurses couldn't think to give him his morphine through a shot instead of a pill he can't swallow.
I will let you all know as soon as I hear from the scope.
Thank you for prayers and words of encouragement.
