So the car is packed, it's reassuring the girls are happy and I'm waiting for Sam to wake, so I can take his temp again and then we will head in.... no point waking him.
I can't believe how quickly he changed.... and also it was hard to see how frazzled we all were by this - how near the surface it is in the girls thinking that Sam could die.... it was sad to see the fear in their eyes, but maybe they were mirroring mine. Sam has been growing in strength and not been in Starship for nearly 10 weeks, so it's a bummer to have to go back.
Each week we have a family verse that we memorise and say before each meal, taking time to stop and thank God for providing for us. This week it's been Deuteronomy 31:8 ' The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid'. Please Lord be with Sam helping his body to fight this thing, whatever it is. Please be with the girls who are unsettled with our family being fragmented in 3 different places, please be with me as I take Sam in and face the weird but necessary world of Starship.
