I typed up this whole blog yesterday, but had a computer glitch which deleted it before I had a chance to post it here. So now I'm attempting it once again....here goes...
I'm asking all of you, my dear Sparkfriends, to keep my FIL in your thoughts & prayers today, as well as the rest of the family. Many of you know that he has suffered from renal cell cancer for the last several yrs. The cancer has spread pretty much all over his body now. He's a fighter, God bless him! He still goes about his business as if he were perfectly healthy & whole. He puts the rest of us to shame. Anyway, my MIL called yesterday to tell us that he was admitted to the hospital the day before (on Wed. afternoon). He had taken a pretty nasty fall earlier in the week and fractured his shoulder. On top of that, he was having so much difficulty breathing, even using his inhalers, that he decided to call the Dr. who told him to promptly go to the ER. It was discovered that he has pneumonia...again. Poor Dad! I wish there was more I could do, but God is taking care of him, so I know he is in the best possible hands.
Please add your prayers to ours for Dad's healing, whether it be a physical healing here on this earth, or a more permanent healing in his Heavenly Home with the Lord, where he wouldn't suffer any of this pain anymore. He is a mighty man of God (a pastor and missionary) and is more than ready and willing to be in the presence of His Savior anytime the Lord should call him. It's the rest of the family that would have trouble dealing with our loss.
Thanks to all of my dear Sparker friends for your prayers & support as we go through this difficult time.
