Postcard Friendship Friday...

I got a call this morning from my step mother...
my dad is in a VA hospital and they found a large mass on his pancreas...
even though he wouldn't survive the surgery...
my step mom is waiting on the surgeon to come in a talk to her...
they had to give him 3 units of blood...
they cannot keep his blood sugar level...
I will probably not visit you all this week...
but I just wanted you to know...
and to ask for prayers for my dad...
but mostly for my step mom...
he doesn't know what's going on...
and she is having to deal with it all alone...
sorry for a downer post, but sometimes life happens while we are blogging...
I will be back next week with a better post...

That is the nicest presentation concerning your father. You did an outstanding job, and I am sure he would be very pleased. I trust things take a turn for the better soon.

I am sorry to hear about your father.

I like your "father" cards. I framed one and gave it to my father once.
