Update on Dad and Prairie Harvest Swap Reminder

Good Tuesday Morning! Hope you all enjoyed your Labor Day.Wanted to let you all know today is the last day to get me your info for The Prairie Harvest Swap click on top side bar for rules and sign up info.I'll accept sign ups till 4 today as it'll be a little hectic this week.....

I want to thank all the prayers and kind emails for my dad.No one could ask for better friends..He goes in Thursday to have the tumor removed.He should be in the hospitol about a week.The doctors say he will be in alot of pain and will have to take the pain meds for at least 6 weeks.Up to this point he has not wanted to take the pain meds but has resigned that he will take them after the surgery.They will have to go through his stomach and move his insides then move them back.They say he will have to wear a colostomy bag the rest of his life.He'll then have another round of treatments.I'm scared for him but it looks like he is going to be ok in the end.He says he is worried but knows he'll beat it and just wants to get back to his regular life.He is stir crazy not being able to work.I'll be with him today figuring out what needs done before and while he is in the hospitol.He has a black lab my best friend gave him before she passed away who is his "baby" so I think his friend will be helping with the dog a few days...The visiting Angels offered to clean his house but he said no as he was bored and wanted to do it himself.He's a bachelor so I know I'll have to go over it better before he gets home don't want him to get a infection with his immune being down...I'm a little anxious waiting to get this chapter done with but putting my trust in God to get us through it.Plus I have a few other things bugging me but I've always been one to bounce back quickly...Life is to short to be miserable...On another note just want to tell that cranky crow Robin Thank You for forgiving me even though you know it's soooo true...smile...Gotta love that little Cranky Crow! I promise to get a few pics on soon of a few of the barn finds too.Warm Blessings!~Amy

I'll be thinking of you and your dad this week - every day sweetie.
And every nite I'll be sending thoughts for strength and patience and brave hearts to you both.

I know you'll take wonderful care of your dad. Don't forget to take care of yourself as well (as best as you can). Any little thing you can do to replenish yourself as you travel this road will keep you strong for him (and keep you stong and well for those of us who care about and worry over YOU)!

Many hugs!

Awwww, Sweet Amy - my best thoughts and prayers are, and will continue to be, with you and your dad. It sounds as though he's in the "right" place emotionally and that will be half the battle. It's will be ok...maybe not today or tomorrow - but, eventually - so hold on to that....And you - take care of yourself....Thanks for the smile you gave me today....Hugs & Blessings ~ Robin (Hey - you think those visiting Angels would like to visit my nest??) ;o)
