“Day is Done”, taps. My last post

To all of the soldiers for Wayne, our deepest appreciation, gratitude and love for your tireless service.  You have stayed true to the coarse.  Not all battles are won.

Go to sleep, peaceful sleep,
May the soldier or sailor,
God keep.
On the land or the deep,
Safe in sleep.

Love, good night, Must thou go,
When the day, And the night
Need thee so?
All is well. Speedeth all
To their rest


1. A vigil (from the Latin vigilia, meaning wakefulness) is a period of purposeful sleeplessness, an occasion for devotional watching, or an observance.-  what our family and I am sure all of you out there are doing.

2.  a watch or a period of watchful attention maintained at night or at other times –  what the ICU staff is doing

3. evening or nocturnal devotions or prayers; usually used in plural – what we are all doing.

We are keeping vigil.  He is trying, but this is a true battle.  Vigilance (the ability to maintain attention and alertness over a prolonged period of time) is our mantra. Of course the next 24 hours……. I guess…..you know it goes without saying.               STANDING VIGIL

“Regrettably – new old digs”

Suffice it to say that I do not like making postings like this.                                                   Wayne is back at Huntsman,  our home away from home,  back in the ICU.  Why?  I hate this cursed word, Wayne has “sepsis”.   From my earlier postings you know  that this is not a good development. The vigil is on.  He has been intubated and the work of stabilizing him has been going full force.  It is amazing to see his will,  I take much inspiration from him. Now if we can dig him out of this regrettable new twist.
