I spent three days this week in Alamosa with my friend Lory, who is losing her battle with various cancers. The day I buried my friend Naomi, Lory called to tell me her doctor told her it was time to stop treatment…time to call hospice…she was given two months. That was July 20th. Lory was doing fine until August 22nd when the confusion started….and has gotten progressively worse.
Lory’s family members all work so I went down for a few days to care to Lory while they worked. There is something very special about caring for someone you love when they are sick. It becomes a devotional service, an honored privilege.
Lory knew who I was and we talked a little about how and where we met and about some of the things we did together…..repairing computers and setting up networks. Most of the time Lory slept. I cooked a few meals, watched TV, knitted and held Lory’s hand a lot.
I’ve called and talked with Lory’s daughter to see how she is doing….as well as can be expected….the brain tumors are debilitating her….she sleeps.
So, dear readers, please take a few moments and say a prayer for my Lory…that she stays pain free…that she knows she is loved and cared for….and that she passes peacefully.
Know….you are loved!!!
