I cannot wait to show Nick all the letters of encouragement and let them soothe his aching, confused heart the way they have for me.
I cannot wait to tell Nick all the wonderful stories of people coming together to help me and his family in order to allow us to fully help him.
I cannot wait to be able to discuss this path of healing and rehabilitation with him more.
But right now, there are only 3 things Nick cares about…
1. That he can physically see me in the room
2. That he gets a water soaked sponge-on-a-stick to suck on as much as possible
3. That his hands are held with the fingers interlaced, and that we shift and rotate the grips every minute or two
He hasn’t slept at all since he’s been awake. Today the nurse wants quiet sleep time as much as possible. He even said, “two thumbs down for being awake”
