More Prayers Needed

I went up to the hospital today to see my Uncle Chuck. He is in ICU with pneumonia and is sedated. I knew that I really wouldn't be visiting with him in a sedated state, but had hoped to offer encouragement to my aunt. She had been there earlier, but wasn't when I was there. I wrote a little note and left it on the table next to his bed.
It was rather disconcerting to see him in such a state. I hope he recovers to be here longer with us. I don't know if I could bear to lose another family member just yet.
Here he is pictured with my father at the 4th of July picnic last summer in Penn Yan.

I put a card in the mail today. It should be there by Thursday if not tomorrow.

Thank you for stopping there even though it is hard. I wish I lived closer. I am not ready to lose another family member either. I am still praying for mercy.

I don't think any of us could bear to lose another family member already. I will try to visit with him tomorrow

Me either. We've been praying for his speedy recover... By the way, I like the photo. :) Bittersweet.
