Please send some prayers....

My poor dad's having a hard day.

His brother is in the hospital with heart problems.. chances are good that he won't be coming home.

While he was there his phone rang... it was my stepbrother telling him that he had just called the ambulance to take my stepmom to the hospital. She's been pretty sick for the last two years...it's her heart also. I don't really know any details about recovery for her. Dad's getting older and details get lost between him and the drs and my phone.

mom and uncle Bill are in two different hospitals. About 20 miles apart from each other and dad is driving back and forth between the two of them and feeling very guilty about not being able to be in both places at once.

My family could use some good thoughts and prayers if you could spare them.

Thanks, Trish

Trish,

You can count on our prayers for your dad, your uncle, and your step-mom. There is a lot on your dad's shoulders right now.
