dad.

on saturday we got the dreaded phone call that we needed to get down to the hospital in santa clarita because my dad wasn't doing very well. we are so thankful for today because we weren't even sure if we were going to make it down to say our goodbyes, our i loves yous, or give our hugs and kisses. today at 7 a.m. my dad is going to undergo a surgery to relieve the pressure around his heart. we are so thankful that he has made it thus far. please pray for him. this will determine if he has an infection around his heart or if his cancer has made it to the pericardium wall. please pray it is an infection... most of all we want the Lords will, but we can still be a little selfish and pray for the infection as well. we have all had some very sweet and precious time with him over the last few days... laughter, tears, sleep. that is how his days have gone. thank you for praying.

We are all praying here too! Your dad is a lucky guy to have a daughter who loves him so much and you are a lucky girl to have a pop who loves you and his God so much. :) Thanks for letting me have the kids yesterday...we had SUCH a blast! Love you!
