Small hours

by mereintention

I slept from 2-3a sitting in a recliner at the corner of dad’s room. When I awoke and went to his bedside, his feet and hands were much cooler than prior to my nap. 

His rattle seems to have ceased and he’s breathing very regularly, though quicker and more shallow than before. 

His heart rate is high. 

Before I slept, I read a prayer aloud and anointed his forehead with oil.
