We spent the day with a lot of friends and family, praying, and speaking softly to Jane. For the majority of the day she slept peacefully, only opening her eyes and moaning occasionally. After a number of people got to spend time with Jane the boys and I took some alone time to pray over Jane and share memories with her. One of the most important things that Jane would talk about over the last couple of years was make memories for her and especially for the boys.
I told Jane that she is special to God and that her ministry to those around her are special as well. She has always been one to ensure that everyone got ministered to. Yesterday on the way home from lunch she notice a lady that was crying and proceeded to pray most of the way home. As I was rubbing her feet today the Lord put Romans 10:15 on my heart. “Beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news!”
At about 7:00 PM Jane became aware of who was in the room and when she would wake up she would recognize who was in the room and communicate briefly and fall back to sleep. Sometime her communication was with a sigh, a moan, calling for her parents or just a look of recognition.
We have been trying to give her pain medication to ensure that she is not in pain, but it is hard to tell since she is not able to communicate clearly. As we close out the night continue to pray that Jane is not in any pain and for those of us here holding the night watch. Tomorrow morning I will meet with the hospice nurse and start working with them.
