Roller Coaster

Things sure change fast around here and everything is unpredictable. My husband Steve has been in bed for the past 6 days, barely able to  move because of pain, nausea, and fatigue. He’s been sleeping throughout the day and has had numerous delusions. He’s been convinced he only had a few days to live, and he’s been seeing beings on the other side of the veil (I don’t think that was a delusion). Well, today he woke up and decided to go to church! I was sure he would not make it down the stairs but he did great! He went to church for 3 hours, after which he came home and talked on the phone for about an hour to our son Andy, who is recording some of Steve’s memories. Then our Bishop came for a visit and Steve was lively and interactive.  This is a roller coaster. We were watching him decline and now we are watching him rally. I wonder what tomorrow will bring. This is a good reason to take one day at a time and not worry about tomorrow. Steve is knocking on Heaven’s door but we really don’t know when the door will be opened. I have to say it is nice to see him better today. We had a family birthday party yesterday and the kids were thinking it might be the last time they would see him. As you can see from the pictures below, we had a fun time together.
