Today, I just made a really hard phone call.
I called a friend, who happens to be an elder of our church, and a member of our church transition team, and told her that I needed to take a hiatus from all my responsibilities at church.
From the worship team secretary, to youth group counselor & youth group sunday school assistant ... ministry team representative for worship team & children's ministry ... small group leader.
I don't even know what all I do ... I just do it.
Right now, we have no answers ... they don't know if the weakness & nerve pain in his hands and arms & legs that are interferring with his functioning is because of the degree of combativeness that he had ...and the scoliosis and the displaced spinal cord and foramen ... and therefore damaged while he was fighting us ...
or were the nerves just bruised and will they heal ... it could take up to 6 months before we know if he will regain any of the use of his arms and legs enough to know.
Right now, he can't take care of himself. He can't stand up on his own, he can't dress himself, and he has to have help to get up just to go to the bathroom. He even gets exhausted feeding himself.
He is still in need of oxygen just to exist in bed and to do what he is doing.
Today was day 25 in the hospital ... we're both on the weary side.
