I am back from spending 10 days in Calif with my family. My Dad has just entered hospice care for kidney failure and congestive heart failure. He and my Mom live with my youngest sister, Jan, and her husband. I am the oldest of 7 children, and 6 of us were able to be there last week. My other brother kept in touch with facetime on his ipad. My Dad will turn 87 on Monday, May 6th. He and my Mom celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary in March. He is such a good man, and it was so hard to say goodbye to him. It is only knowing that love lives on, and we will be together again eventually that gives hope and consolation. He is really unwell, and says he is ready to go. We have promised we will look after Mom for him. Please keep him and my Mom in your prayer, and all of us as we wait and watch with him during this time.
Thanks my friends. This picture was taken on a "good day" right before I left.
My Dad was a baker his whole life....and we all love donuts!
