Holding Dad's Hand

    Prev Next

    Dad was just diagnosed with a brain tumor.

    His wrist band said "Fall Risk" - but I got a pen and added "Flash Risk" to it too since he was walking around with his butt sticking out of his hospital gown. (I should have added "Fart Risk" too......oh, and "Flirt Risk" since he's a big flirt!) I guess ya gotta keep laughing....

    Please keep him in your prayers.

    Photo taken in the hospital with my cell phone. He had just fallen asleep.

    My whole life I've heard that my hands look just like my father's......
    He has always been very gifted with the use of his hands, from being able to fix anything, art, designs for drafting and engineering, a caring touch to make things better......a long list....

      I burst into tears when I read this photo, I love my dad to bits too and I don't know how I'd cope if I were in your shoes. I wish you and your family all the best in your difficult time and I hope he'll be feeling as good as he can soon. x
