A Brief Life Update

Dad and I joking around recently out to dinner. I didn’t have any jeans to wear so I borrowed a pair of his. I tucked in my shirt for the photo for comic effect. Love this guy!

Finances are fun, and they are important. But there are times when life throws you a curve ball, and adjustments must be made.

Our curve ball came in February when my Dad began to not feel well. Something was off, and he spent the next weeks and months trying to get a handle on why he was having low energy, nausea, and other difficult symtoms. There is a lot to the story, but I am not sure I want to get into detail about it here. It will suffice to say that in mid-May, we were finally given a diagnosis for Dad’s condition, and a timeline as well: 2 – 4 months.

This came as a total shock.

I am certainly in the middle of actively processing this brutal news. On the positive side of things: my work has been extremely gracious and flexible, allowing me to spend time with Dad while working remotely from his place. My immediate family has been able to spend a lot of time with him, doing many of the things that he loves. Spending time with him is a huge gift, and I do my best to not take the time for granted. Most days, he is in high spirits and generally pain free which I am so grateful for.

If you as a reader think of it, please pray for my Dad. For strength, peace, and a miracle, as I do believe that God still works through miracles. Thanks for your patience as the blog takes a pause during this challenging and heartbreaking time.
