dad update

happy friday! just wanted to give you all an update on how my dad is doing (read here to catch up), as i know many of you have been thinking about us this week. i’m so very pleased to announce that he came through the surgery with no complications and is doing great. we are still waiting on his pathology results (should be getting those today) but the doctor expects to find clear margins and a successful outcome. praise the Lord! we got home from the hospital yesterday and he’s been in such great spirits. he’s been cracking jokes since the minute he woke up from surgery and has had us laughing the whole time- that’s helped keep our spirits high.

i’m taking care of all of their meals this week, and am trying to get some healing goodness in him despite his pickiness! he’s a simple guy, and doesn’t like things too fancy. plus, i’m a veg-head so that only complicates the matter. i’ve got a couple of veggie soups planned and some simple salads, but it’s everything i can do to keep from sprucing things up a bit. ha!

i wanted to thank each and every one of you for your prayers, sweet comments, support, kindness and patience! i know this week has been a bit off, but things will get back to normal come monday. i am so thankful for the community we have created here and i love knowing that we can count on each other and always be there for each other. you really are the best!

love, bonnie
