Bill writes in his journal to let us know as to how his hospitalized son, Johnathon, is doing.

Monday, September 24, 2007, 11:27 a.m.~

Dear Journal~

Bill here; this won't be a long entry. I am writing to let y'all know I appreciate the prayers, the concern over our son, Johnathon, who is in the hospital.

As you know, Johnathon had a seizure, a bad one, early Saturday morning. He is still in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, fighting to survive. His neurological signs haven't changed much; but he hasn't gotten any worse either. It's like he's in limbo somehow.

Johnny is still semi-conscious, still not responding that well to the doctor's commands except to pain stimuli or when the doctors shine their bright lights into his eyes; Johnny will then turn his head away or grimace, but not much more than that.

Dr. Ram still says he may have sustained some brain damage. Most discouraging news indeed, but we should know more in a few days when Johnny becomes more aware of his surroundings--that is, if he does.

I spend just about all my time at the hospital; came home last night so I could get some needed sleep; just got up about an hour and a half ago,  took a shower and am in the process of trying to decide what to wear. Louisiana is lying in bed, sleeping; I will try to be quiet, so as to not to disturb her; she needs her rest.

The phone just rang; it was our pastor from church, inquiring about Johnny. He was upset to learn that there was no change; he said that Christ Community Assembly of God will be praying for Johnny when they have their prayer time today. He asked us if we needed anything; I told him just the prayers.

Well, I am going to go now; get dressed, then head on over to the hospital to see Johnny. I will write in here again with another update. Until next time, this is Bill signing off. So long for now.

Hopefully next time I write, there'll be much better news. Lord, I hope so! I hate this waiting, not knowing anything, not knowing if Johnny is going to ever emerge from his semi-conscious state!

~Bill. :(

Another well-written story in Johnny's life. Bill shows us how parents hurt when their children are suffering.

Bill's concern about his son very evident; painful to read, because scenes like this happen in real life, every day. Excellent.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
