I've gotten "that" call.....

My aunt called me this morning to tell me that my dad has cancer. I feel like the photo....void of feeling, numb, in an abyss. He's going to be having surgery soon. He is 81 and in general has good health. If you're a prayer, please pray for him. Thank you....

Chris,
those calls that drain the blood from the face and make the knees wobble and the heart just swell and ache...

i am sending you love, supportive words and prayers and the very best to you and your dad...first with his surgery and then with his recovery...

i can so relate to what you are going through...my own aging parents and the many calls i get too...there is this part of our heart that believes our parents will be here with us, and for us, forever and those phone calls we receive are so very hard to take...

i am holding you close to my heart dear, sweet, friend ...

Chris,
I am so sorry to hear that. Yes, I will pray for him, you and your whole family. I remember well the day I got a similar call from my dear, beloved Mom telling me she had cancer.
I am sending you hugs, strength and compassion.

Yes yes. Of course I will pray...for your whole family who would be blessed with feelings of peace at this time...peace to support your dad, peace to care for themselves where needed, peace to be of comfort to each other.

Blessings to you and you family.

I am sending prayers your way & his... It is so scary... My mom is battling breast cancer right now. I've found the internet was a great resource, for her & for me.
Keep your chin up...
