Unexpected News

Happy belated Thanksgiving to all of my Blogger friends.  I've not been on the computer in a couple of days and haven't forgotten  about you.

As you know from previous posts, my Dad had cancer, and kicked its butt.  On Wednesday, I received a call from my Mom informing me Dad had taken a turn for the worse.  We came down to Texas to be by my Dad's side, while friends take care of our animals and home.

My Dad is resting at home, with the help of Hospice, sexy nurses (inside joke with my Dad), and medication to make the last days of his life easier and pain free.  

Once again, I ask if you could please send prayers.

Thank you, your friend,




  1. You'll be in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. You got it Sandy...Sending lots of prayers and hugs your way.

  3. So Sorry to hear that. Here is to a recovery.

  4. Good thoughts and prayers to you & yours.

  5. So sorry. I told SW and she said she'll pray. My God bless you.

  6. sweet Sandy - you and yours are always in our prayers but we will say extra special prayers for your Dad. i am glad that you are there with him and for your Mom. please tell your Dad that there a couple of naked canadians sending him all of our best thoughts and wishes. he might get a kick out of that if he's making jokes about sexy nurses - bahahahah!

  13. Oh Sandy! I'm so very sorry to hear about your Dad. I lost my father 1 1/2 years ago to the same thing. Hospice was such a blessing to our family during that time. They kept us abreast of what to expect with Daddy's day-to-day condition, answered any and all questions we had and were such a great support system to our entire family during his last four months.

    What a privilege it was to witness the love between my Mom and Dad during those days; beautiful, loving memories I will always cherish.

    My heart goes out to you and your family. Sending big, long bear hugs and prayers to ease your sadness.

  14. I'm sorry to hear this, Sandy. Thoughts and prayers headed your way for your Dad and your family.

    1. Marilyn,

      Thank you for your prayers. God has provided me with the strength.

  18. I remember being there for you in the beginning, so I can only extend compassion to you during this time. I've always wondered if the cure wasn't more horrendous than the disease. I hope the best for you.

    Your old friend - in more ways than one.
