John's Gone Rogue...
... John has taken over the night shift. He sent Belinda home and hung up on Loretta. (There are no cell phones allowed in the ICU and no one can call the land line after 10 p.m.) And I have been ordered to not report for duty until tomorrow morning. Ellie is completely sedated, FINALLY, and by all accounts all is well in the room. Loretta and B are completely at loose ends, but I am relishing my last taste of freedom... And so tonight we REST.
Here is a blessing for our tireless "team" they rest tonight:
"Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkenss, and the darkenss around you will be as bright as noon. The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, llike an ever-flowing spring. Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities. Then you will be known as a rebuilder of walls and a restorer of homes."
