I just got back from seeing Wendy. At the sound of my voice she opened her eyes. I held her hand and said “Wendy it’s me Bob.” “I’m here for you”. It took a second but recognition dawned on here and her eyes lit up, she smiled, and she tried to hug me. She could not move her arm, so she rolled her entire body sideways and draped her arm over my shoulder. Then she turned her head and I kissed her on the cheek. She kept her arm on my shoulder the entire time I was there. Like she was trying to hug me.
Needles went through me from the top of my head all the way down my body, I swear it felt like being baptized by the Holy Spirit. After a few minutes, I asked her “Do you know who I am?” She shook her head yes!
I told her she was going to be ok and that she needed to rest. She squeezed my fingers with her other hand and kind of nodded back off to sleep. I left.
The second time I got to see her today, she was even more responsive. I held her hand and she kept looking at me with such eyes of love. She tried a few times to either talk or cough but she couldn’t. I stayed a few minutes and started to leave, and she squeezed my hand. I asked her “Do you want me to stay?” She shook her head yes. So, I stayed with her for about another 15 minutes. I told her how much I loved her and softly, gently tried to lull her with my voice till she went back to sleep.
I am home now and I am exhausted. I feel like someone lifted a refrigerator off of my shoulders. Wendys family is all there for her. They have been so nice to me. It is time to let her rest and heal some more. Tomorrow is another day.
God answered our prayers people. Someone wrote on my facebook page “I can hear the testimony now” You bet you will. Just wait till I get some sleep and Wendy gets better. OOOOO weee are you all going to hear the testimony!
I know it is not much, but all I can say is “Thank you Lord”. And thank you my friends. Please keep us in your prayers.
