Holiday Weekend, Bethesda

by claudia

Matt has had the weekend off from surgeries but will be back in the O.R. Monday morning. They have cut way back on the sedation drugs but he is still in a daze. We are so anxious to get some type of recognition out of him but he has had such a mix of drugs that he is having trouble cutting through the fog. We know we need to be patient as his body recovers from the trauma and the drugs but it's hard.

We were able to attend Mass this morning right here at the chapel at the medical center. It's funny how sometimes the readings are just what we needed to hear and today was another example of a time I felt the Word was speaking directly to me. The theme of the readings was all about faith; to consider the value of faith, the necessity of faith, if we are to expect God's work in our midst.
