Visited both my uncles' (my mother's brothers) in hospital today. They're in for different things and were even in ICU two beds away from each other for a day or two. ICU is very different now. Unfortunately, I have a very vivid memory of what ICU was like when my mother was there. Sigh...such is life. Of course, one's perspective of life makes such a difference in these matters. Think my younger uncle has it right. He is bravely battling a incurable medical condition that slowly but steadily diminishes his lung capacity. For daily living, he is dependent on pure oxygen through nose tubes. But he is ever grateful for another day that the Lord gives him. He remains joyful.
