Prayers needed

Today's a big, hard day for Dad. It's been a hard road for him battling diabetes. We're trying everything possible to keep him with us a bit more, it just gets harder each time. Today he's going in for dialysis for the first time. I hate to see him frailing. I'm very worried. Prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Hugs Dina, and as always you are in my prayers. I'll say some extra for your Dad today.

Dina, your dad has my prayers..Sweetie, I do dialisys 3 times a week for 3 hrs. each time. I too have diabetes..Tell your dad it doesn't hurt, it's just a nusiance to have to sit, but he can read, watch tv listen to music. He will feel so much better after a treatment...If I can answer anything else, just PM me and I will try.
