Another Hospital Call.

At about 11:30 am this morning, I got an urgent call from a friend's wife, who told me she was at the ER with her husband and he was in very bad shape.  I jumped in my car and headed to the hospital.  He was in the ER, unresponsive.  They did all they could for him and got him somewhat stabilized.  He has a bad lung disease and has been unable to work for 4 years.  His mother and father died of the same disease.
I stayed with them till about 5pm then, I came home.  At about 7 pm, I checked with his brother-in-law and he said there was very little change.  At 8:30pm, I called his wife and she said he is still unresponsive and that the nurses who took him for a CAT scan said his legs were started "modeling".
This is not a good sign.  There are many family members at the hospital now.  I told his wife if she needed me, regardless of the time, to call me and I would be there immediately.
There are members of this family who have caused me much trouble so, it is not a good thing for me to be around them, any more than I have to be.  Some of them came in while I was there this afternoon and they did not even speak to me.
This makes it very hard for me.  I led this dying man to the Lord about 10 months ago.  I have known this man all his life.  No Pastor has ever tried to win him to the Lord but, this is what I do.
I am expecting a call tonight to head to the hospital, to be with this family.  This is sad but, he is ready to go.  He has suffered for so long.

Oh Pee Wee. I am so sorry. I am so thankful though that you led him to the Lord . I just can\'t believe that in a time like this his family wouldn\'t even speak to you. What a shame. Thinking of you and praying for your friend.
big hugs ~~
