Three services on Sunday morning. I took a nap and then met a person for personal spiritual counseling for a couple of hours.
John wanted me to camp with him outside. I talked him into using the camper. Three times he kicked the covers off and was shivering. I covered him up (and me) and snuggled close with the blanket over our heads.
There was the noise of mice in one of the camper storage areas. John asked, "What's that?"
"The cat," I said.
"Oh, good," he said.
Monday morning, back ache.
"I'm cold!" I hear.
Elsie knocks on the door. "Dad, you've got to go to the hospital."
Howard F. had a stroke this Monday morning. Left side of the brain. No bleeding. He was transferred down to Merit Care in Fargo. I spent some time with the family this morning in Fosston and with Howard, Sylvia, Janet, and Roxanne this evening in Fargo. Please keep them in your prayers.
Got the message that Dennis M. is in Fosston with hip-replacement surgery. Please keep him in your prayers.
Snow and wind.
