Heavy Heart

It has been a tough week for my family. After attending a beautiful family wedding, my dad was rushed to the hospital a week later. He has been fighting Cancer since 2006 and just doesn’t have the strength anymore. After starting with Stage 4 Colo-Rectal Cancer, spreading to his Liver 3 times and on to his lungs it has now spread further into his lungs and his brain. He has pneumonia now. He agreed to a ventilator but only for a week. We believe he is waiting for my middle brother to arrive.
My son saw him Saturday and that was the hardest thing to see. He was the only grandson/child for so long and they are very close. This is very upsetting for him but he is a strong young man.
Hospital chic is not very glamorous but thank goodness for J Crew Jackie’s and embellished tees. 😉
I’ll be dark for a while but will keep busy reading all of your posts.

    Oh Audrey – I am so sorry to hear this. YOu know that my heart is there with you completely. When my dad died in November, both of my children went in to see him and they have thanked me several times since for the opportunity. I am going to be praying for you and your whole family and most of all, for your lovely dad, who has such a kind face. I know you will be exhausted and do take care. I am thinking of you. wendy

    I read your blog but I never comment. Today is different. I wanted to say that you and your family are in my thoughts. This is an extremely difficult time for you and you have many readers whose hearts are heavy after hearing this news.

    Sort of the same here…I read frequently but seldom comment…although I am close by in TX. Please know that many of us are keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

    I am definitely praying for you and your family.

    My heart goes out to you. My aunt just passed away 2 weeks ago from battling colon cancer as well, it spread everywhere and after 5 years she finally succumbed to it. It's hard to accept that you cannot do anything but comfort them when you see them going through so much and yet, they still don't want to give up.

    I will pray for you and your family and hope for the best.
