Olivia was moved on Thursday, Feb 22, to her family’s home in Jersey Shore, PA. She is under hospice care. The family is now all with her (all her siblings have left their jobs and schooling temporarily to be home with the family).
Even though Olivia is mostly sleeping and not communicative, it seems she is able to hear their voices, so they are reading and talking to her, spending time just being with her. Their main goal is her comfort and pain management.
Please continue to pray for Olivia and all the Waldens during this time. Pray that Olivia’s pain will be able to be managed well and that the Lord will surround her with his peace. The transition from earthly life through death to eternal life is never easy for those who are left behind. There is great sorrow over loss. I am thankful that the Waldens are a close family and can be a strength to each other. I am also thankful that, as believers, their ability to find comfort in this comes from the great Comforter.
