Better News

I've been absent for a while and man, has it has been a craaaaazy time. I've got lots of catching up to do, so I should probably start out with one of the positive things that have gone on in the past month.

Many of you have been following the recent health saga with my estranged father. I am happy to report that, at least for now, he is doing better. He was rushed back to the hospital last week but, despite a rather grave prognosis, is doing better than when he was the last time he had been returned to the hospital.

So, for his sake, I hope that he is able to resume some quality of life.

I found out today that he is no longer on oxygen so at some point, I should be able to talk to him. I'm not sure what I will say. I'm sure that it will get awkward pretty quickly after "hi" but we'll see how it goes. In the meantime, I'll just keep putting little bits of positive energy out there, pointing it in his direction.

Good news to read. Made an album last night of our trip pictures and was reminded of our yummy lunch! :)

I'm glad he's doing better. My son tracked down his dad a couple of years ago & they've talked on the phone several times. (They've never met.) I thought about their early conversations as I read your post. It does get better.
