View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Dad: The Next 24 Hours

Dad has taken a turn for the worse. Carbon dioxide buildup. Low oxygen intake. Pneumonia. No longer fully conscious.

The doctor's say the next 24 hours will tell. If the oxygen assistance helps by tomorrow, he has a chance. If it does not help, they cannot continue this method. Once they stop, and with his not wanting extraordinary means, the end will then likely come within a couple of days.

I called the girls. They will be there tomorrow night. We will know by then which way it is going.

It's in your hands, Lord.
