My father has been battling liver disease since February. It's been a rough ride for my entire family, least of all my courageous, amazing, beautiful father.
Yesterday he was ushered into a hospital room after poor results came back from the previous day's blood work. The attending doctor told him his liver is unresponsive. His specialist arrived a bit later and advised us that his liver is failing. When asked his level of pain on a scale of 1-10, he told them "10". A dosage of morphine was provided and an hour later the pain level had not changed for him.
No one wants to see anyone in pain.... but to see a parent?.... well it's unbearable.
Whatever your religion or whomever your God, my family believes quite strongly in the power of prayer. I ask for you, my loyal readers silent and aloud, to include my father and my family in your own prayer ring.
Our hope is that he comes home this week which is both good an bad; bad in that it means there is nothing they can do for him. We have asked God if we might be blessed with him through the holidays.
Your prayers and weekly thoughts are appreciated beyond measure.
