Each day Linda's parents, Reanna and I keep watch over our precious Linda. Linda's sisters Anna and Lisa and Linda's friend Lorie also stop by and visit with Linda daily. We start early in the morning and end really late at night. I then wake up with her about every two hours through the night. We all are tired, but I know there is no other place any of us would want to be.
My cousin Sophia has also been stopping by each evening to see Linda, as well as be someone that I can lean on in this difficult time. We spend each evening sitting on my cot next to Linda's hospital bed, watching t.v. and talking quietly, with Linda constantly on our minds and hearts. This has been a blessing. I do not think I would have been able to hold it together so far without her.
Our main concern is keeping Linda comfortable and out of pain. This has been a struggle the last couple of days. Yesterday her nurse Angela increased the morphine patches, but it still took about 12 hours before Linda appeared comfortable.
