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.
