Update on my Daddy
Thank you all for your prayers and comments regarding my dad. He had surgery yesterday to remove the upper left lobe of his lung and three ribs. He was unstable after surgery and things were "touch and go" for a few hours. What a difference a day makes! This morning the doctors were amazed at how well he is doing. He was even wanting to sit up and he ate a good breakfast!
His prognosis is still not good even with the surgery, chemo and radiation the doctor is giving him a 30% chance of survival. If anyone can beat this he can. He has complete faith in God, whatever his outcome. If it is his time, he is ready-but he isn't going without a fight! His attitude is amazing and God's grace and peace is shining through him. He is a precious man!
I'll be in Alabama a few more days and then I must get back to Indy. It's been a difficult and busy couple of weeks, but I'm so glad I was able to be here with my mom and dad through this.
The picture above is of my daddy on Easter holding two of his great granddaughters. He has always loved babies.
Again, thank you for your prayers and thoughts for our family, they are appreciated so much. Please continue to pray!
