"It does everything but fly!" exclaimed Denis (Ron's father).
I had resisted ordering the hospital bed for Ron but duh...it has a remote control. It really does do everything to keep Ron more comfortable. He only needs one pillow now. Of course I did "Pimp his Ride" by adding blankets and pillows along the rails. Flannel sheets are on the way so he is surrounded by "soft".
The reason I did not want the hospital bed is because I did not want to be away from him at night. I am always holding his hand or touching his shoulder so he knows he is not alone. (I am typing with one hand now.)Ron has always been a "hands on guy"- whether he is giving a hug, or holding a hand, or patting you on the shoulder...It is important to make a connection...touching.
I am not ready for the world of "I-Touch"...it's not a real connection is it? You touch but don't press...I still like feeling the keys and buttons bounce back after I have pressed them.
So anyway, I've got Ron's "new ride" pushed next to our bed and with some modifications I can still be close to him. I am playing some music from his vast collection while I type. Ron is sleeping now and free of pain.
Thank you everyone for your prayers. I do believe God is listening.
