Update on Dad (11.30.06)

In Uncategorized on November 30, 2006 at 12:39 am

I wanted to give you an update on my Dad’s recuperation from his injuries (click here if you are not aware of what happened).

When my family and I went to see him over Thanksgiving, he looked great! He possessed a very positive attitude and his mind was as sharp as ever. He is learning how to walk with a walker, and Mom told me he took 35 steps today. He has set for him a release date of December 22nd — Holly’s birthday. The way he’s moving, I know he’ll do it!

God kept Dad around for a reason. If nothing else, Dad seems to be playing the part of George Bailey in “It’s a Wonderful Life.” He now realizes how truly rich he is with his family and his church and that he helps all of us have a wonderful life as well. Our goal is to make these years that God has left for him happy years. Dad has worked so hard his whole life to provide for us, it’s time now that we as his family take care of him.

So life on that front is looking much, much better. Thank you for your prayers. Keep them coming!
