How Tired I Am

December 10th 2009

Tired. Right now that describes me.  I should be sleeping not typing, but I wanted to write this while I could post it.  Tonight I will sleep in a hotel, a nice comfy bed with real pillows, and no monitors beeping and going off in the night to keep me up.  Monitors, yes monitors.  Since Monday night, today is Thursday, I have slept in a hospital room with monitors going off, nurses interrupting my sleep, and the sounds of carts in the hallway early in the morning.

This time however all of that noise, and those monitors, were not the result of a hospital stay on my part.  This time it is my son.  He is staying in the hospital to have long term EEG monitoring done to determine why he is having shuttering and drop attacks.  We want to determine if this is due to epileptic activity or some other issue.  He was originally scheduled to get out today, but since he has not had a drop attack yet they wanted him to stay longer in order to attempt to capture one on monitoring.  The last 2 nights they have tried to sleep deprive my son, keeping him up till midnight and waking him at 6 am.  This means I did nearly the same, making me sleep deprived, almost seemed I was more sleep deprived then my son.  This is not so good for an epileptic who is not controlled (my story-Rocky Road).  So tonight my husband came back to town, we live 2 hours from the hospital, so that I could sleep in this nice comfy hotel.  Tired, I am very tired.  You see I know all about those hospital monitors, nurses interrupting your sleep, and carts in the hall early in the morning from my hospital stays.

Despite all of this we know one something in our family–God is God unchanging, and He is with us regardless.  So we will stand on that truth.  I may be tired, but God will never be.

  2. Psalm 3:5 says, “I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.” May the Lord bless you my friend … sleep and rest well in His love.
