Speed Bump

Have you ever been driving through a parking lot, maybe going just a little too fast, and WHAM! you hit a speed bump? That’s what my last week was like. Cruising along with all sorts of kid activities, watching the crazy weather coming into Texas (ice storm) and trying to finish my current work-in-progress, not to mention all the house projects we have going on right now and WHAMMO! a call at 6:30 in the morning changed my week. My dad was in the hospital. Some of you know that he’s been fighting prostate cancer (which has gone into his bones) for the past few years. They changed his pain medication the previous week and suddenly he wasn’t coherent and could barely walk. The medicine overwhelmed his one good kidney and dehydrated him. He’s home now, very weak. We’re grateful a crisis was averted but we know how serious the situation is. If you think of it, please pray for my folks as they may have to make a decision in the coming weeks about dialysis.

    Hi, Leanna

    I just started reading Elvis Takes a Back Seat this afternoon and am in love with it, so I’ve been exploring your website. I live in Georgia, was born in 1947, and loved the music of Elvis – so there is much that I can relate to.

    You’re walking a rough road with your dad. I’ve already prayed for him and you also.

    I don’t guess there’s a way to subscribe to your blog, but I’ll try to keep up with you. I’m glad you made the transition to CBA and hope to see many more novels.

    Thanks, Carole! Love your name, by the way. Anyway, thank you for the kind comments concerning Elvis Takes a Back Seat. I’m so glad you’re enjoying it and hope it will bless you.

    Thank you for the prayers!

    And yes, you just have to check back here for blog updates. I’m trying to get better about posting every week day.
