"I want to believe yesterday afternoon happened for a reason - that his life is not over yet. Doug has a DNR order, and they were seconds away from pronouncing him dead. The nurse hugged me and said she was so sorry, and a few seconds later, his pulse came back. He is still hanging on by a thread of life, and the odds are terribly stacked against him, but he is fighting. I asked him to fight for his life the last time I was able to talk to him, and I know now that he really is trying to do that. I need a prayer today too. I'm emotionally drained and I hurt all over. I'm trying to find the strength that I need to be there for him and I'm not sure how I can keep the pace up. We're so far away from the hospital and I've been there every single day all day long. I got home at 1:00 a.m. this morning and although I am sleeping from sheer exhaustion, it feels like I stayed up all night. I need God to help me find the strength to keep going.
I also want to thank everyone for the prayers and kind words. I am firmly rooted this morning in the belief that prayer is what is sustaining him."
