Day 6

I went to the temple this morning. One of my favorite places is being in the temple. The sweet comforter is felt so strong the minute you walk through the doors. I wanted the added assurance today, the extra peace that is felt at the temple.

Check this out. this is why I love the temple. ( I think you may have to copy n paste)

While sitting in the chapel listening to the organ music I am reminded very clearly that our family has been sealed together. That no matter what as long as we keep our covenants we will be together forever. As I look around at all the other people there I am awe struck that they too have that promise. We all have that promise offered to us if we choose to make it. I would have it no other way. When others are faced with similar situations I don't know how they deal with it.

So many thoughts running rampant today. I feel agitated and I don't know why.

A fleeting thought goes through my mind to have our burial plots moved to accommodate another one right next to ours. They are in a charming little cemetery in Monroe, UT. Many of John's family and extended family members are buried there. Nicole told us once how peaceful she felt there.

I arrived at the hospital later morning. Things seem about the same. She is resting peacefully. The nurse comes in to give me the updates....In the night Nicole started thrashing around. They had a hard time getting that under control. They up'd her sedation but that didn't help. An anti-anxiety was used that finally calmed her down but is took 5 hours. Not sure why that happened. Very perplexing to everyone involved. It makes me not want to leave her now for even a second. I know that I need to sleep and take care of myself or I will be of no use to her but it is still a thought.

The doctor just came in. Nicole will be having surgery after all tomorrow. They will be excising the deepest burns and putting on homograph. It is a covering that tricks the body into accepting the new graphs. It will come off wen they are ready to put one new skin. They don't want to run the risk of what precious skin she does have being rejected.

Grateful to all the many friends, family and even people we don't even know who are praying for her and our family. We have had the tender mercies of the Lord.

I, too, appreciate you sharing your innermost thoughts in your tender writings, Angi. I find myself checking your blog first thing each morning. It is comforting to me to know that you are being blessed and cared for while John is away. Love you all
