Hope walked into the waiting room late in the evening. The doctor came with good news.
My mom’s hope and faith brought her through. She survived with flying colors.
I remember the hopeful smile she gave me as the nurse willed her away.
She knew her God delivers. He brings hope to our darkest, worrisome days.
I praised Him that he saw us through the day. He used the trial to teach us lessons a new. To show that faith and hope prevail even Satan’s biggest darts. Satan may try to take my mother away and destroy my faith, but He would never succeed as long as I keep my hope in Christ, my Savior.
My mother had a few hours of recovery and then we would be able to see her.
I decided to go to dinner with my brother and his wife and sister’s family. Part of me worried about driving home in the dark night, but God even delivered hope in that worry.
I had left my keys with the parking attendant; not knowing that they left at 6 p.m.
After time of fellowship and fun at a local Oriental restaurant, we headed back to the hospital. Darkness had fallen.
We went back to ICU only to learn that between 6 and 9 p.m. no visitors were allowed.
I headed to my car thinking about going home; but the attendants were gone. After a call to the security number listed for after hours, I learned I had about 45 minutes to an hour to wait for someone to bring me keys to my car.
It would be past midnight before I got home. My other brother offered me a bed for the night which I graciously accepted. Once I arrived at his home, I went to bed full of hope for tomorrow. My mother survived.
