update on Dad (doing better)

We were afraid we were going to lose Dad on Saturday when he couldn't get his breath, then he had the seizure afterwards which made us think the end was near. But Dad has taken a turn for the better and is even eating. There is no active bleeding on his brain, though through the struggles one of my sisters told me that his mind seems increasingly weakened in his dementia. He will probably need care beyond what Mom can give.

All of your prayers and expressions of concern have been a great blessing and help. Thanks so much to all of you.

Was praying for you and your dad yesterday, while I drove from one place to another. Peace to you, in such a hard time.

Thanks, ESI!

Thanks so much, L.L. I need it (we all do, of course (: )

Thanks Kim. Yes, it's good to seek to share in the community that is ours in Jesus by the Spirit.

Monica, Thanks. Nice to get people together on things. Really L.L. and some others are extra good at that community touch. I wish I could spend more time blogging, but appreciate what I can do. It's fun to share with others and get to know others as well as their thoughts, experiences and perspectives. And we certainly are already a community together in Jesus. Thanks for your encouraging words.
