Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
normally i would be at church at this time but tommy has a bug so i stayed home.maybe that was in some way providential as i have just read and pondered your post ,nigel,and lifted my thoughts in empathetic prayer for you.
tommy has myotonic dystrophy and when we took him on we were told that he would not live long and we have had some close calls and all the time we know that humanly speaking he is deteriorating-but not as fast as expected.
we also have a friend who was expected to die 4/5 year ago but is at present in remission,i think.she has however recently had treatment abroad which family and friends have paid for.
i think you are probably right in expecting the inevitable and it is painful emotionally for all concerned and physically sometimes for in the present situation could be for quite some time yet,-though of course we can not forsee as you have said.
try not to let what will happen to all of us at some time steal the precious times and the potential times of joy in the now.
God bless   pete.
