I got an encouraging text from my brother today letting me know that I'm in his prayers. It really touched me and made me feel very loved.
Clinton had another night terror last night. I could almost sense it coming, what with residency applications and interviews coming up, as well as the start of a new rotation he'd really rather not do.
Just after falling asleep...
He: Aahh! (Jumps out of bed and turns on the lights)
Me: (Having dealt with MANY of these, I quickly reply) It's OK Honey. You're just having a dream, turn off the light and come back to bed.
He: No. There was something crawling on me.
Me: No, it was just a dream. Nothing's on you.
He: I know it was real cause I wasn't asleep yet.
Me: Well, I'm sure you're dreaming. What was it?
He: (Starting to sorta come out of it) It was...like this...it was...it was this giant worm thing.
Me: Yah, you were dreaming. It's OK. Just go back to sleep.
