Terence's "Comfort Kit" arrived yesterday.

Terence & Cead w/our grand daughter Bella

We had a really busy week these past 7 days- Hospice orientation, meeting the (large) team: medical director, Nurse practitioner, RN, Social worker, chaplain, nurse aids, home aides.......and we've been receiving packages of supplies every day- our house is overflowing with medical supplies and equipment.  Terence's nurse delivered his "Comfort Kit" (I didn't know this existed)- this is a box medications above and beyond his current prescriptions. When the nurse handed the kit to me, I asked "what are these for"?- evidently, I'm  supposed to keep them on hand......

Anyways,  it did help to meet with his nurse, she was able to give me some tips to keep Terence ahead of the pain.  So. far it's worked for the last few days. He was able to enjoy a visit from my sister Charla and her husband today we spent the day outside so he got some sun and fresh air...

 He's been fighting a fever ranging from 99.9 to 103 for the last few days. He started aniti-biotics and has been getting a lot of rest.  So it meant a lot for him to be outside and feeling well enough to hang out with us.

Tomorrow, we are ministering with our team at the Mienh Church in Seattle.  We are both excited that he'll be in the pulpit again, after a short break.

Meanwhile, we have our own version of a "comfort kit":
Psalm 46:1-3 - God is our refuge and strength, and ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear....
