Believe it or not, it is Saturday and Dad C is still hanging on to his earthly presence (at least as far as we know - no phone call yet this morning). He has been comatose, Hospice is there, but it is almost as if he's hanging on for a purpose. Only God knows if he can hear what's happening at this point. Thankfully, the nursing home finally moved him into a room where "Moving' on up to the East Side" isn't blaring from the roommate's t.v. set. It seemed wrong to me that a godly man who was so close to going home should have to be listening to old sitcoms. Maybe he is as reluctant to leave his Anna as she is to see him go. Maybe he's waiting for his son, daughter-in-law, all 6 of their children, and 2 of the great-grands to arrive tomorrow. They're coming a long ways and leaving this morning. Only God knows this mystery. Thank you all for your wonderful comments and your prayers. If you haven't read a granddaughter's point of view, go to Kristen's page at http://kristenssocalledlife.blogspot.com/. Thank you again for your prayers and thoughts. If you wonder what I'm talking about, see yesterday's post.
