I am sad to say I haven't had a moment to think about writing a post since December 28th. After all the great news about my Father's cancer,we began to notice he was growing weaker,and weaker. In the beginning we thought it was perhaps the side effects of the drug he had started taking. He became so ill that he was hospitalized on the 28th with nearly complete kidney failure. So each and every hour of each and every day has been the most horrendous roller coaster ride of serious health concerns for him,and emotions for us. Without going into detail we believe that he had simply let other health issues go. He kept them from his doctor as well as us. It wasn't his cancer,but another condition that is now threatening his life. His cancer tumors which have shrunk so small that they are no longer a strong concern,according to his oncologist.
So now we pray, and hope, and wait......and of course worry that he will not survive to be able to enjoy this good news.
Life can be so hard but preparing to say goodbye is truly the hardest part of all!
