So... overnight he had some irregular heart activity, either too fast or too slow, which I understand is treated with some type of medicine. His children are with him and the kids and I were able to speak to him on speaker phone last night as Chris took his turn at his side. He is not conscious but I fully believe on some level he knows his family is with him and can probably even hear us as we speak to him. Chris was able to say the divine mercy chaplet at his side, which was important to me. We continue to say it at home.
Our Lord said to Saint Faustina:
Encourage souls to say the Chaplet which I have given you ... Whoever will recite it will receive great mercy at the hour of death ... When they say this chaplet in the presence of the dying, I will stand between my Father and the dying person, not as the Just Judge but as the Merciful Savior ...
