I have had plenty of perspective – giving moments this week.
I don’t want to get into many details, but I want to explain my absence this week and what will most likely follow for a while.
Dad went into the hospital a week ago today.
Before we left for Mexico over the holidays, he was to have his third and final surgery – the most important one. This did not happen, due to complications.
Last Friday we found out those complications are cancer.
He was admitted to prepare for chemo – instead there are more complications – he has spent most of the week in ICU with pneumonia.
Needless to say, everything else in life just stops – my main focus right now is my dad, and getting him better.
I am also watching our yard fill with water.
The rain, and the lessons in perspective, can stop now. We have had enough.
I miss you all – I miss the daily interaction here and out there – I bring my laptop to the hospital and check in when I can.
Go hug your loved ones for me, okay?
