There's only a small handful of people who read this blog on any regular basis. They already know what has occurred in the past few weeks and suffice it to say, I won't be going into elaborations at this point in time.
Briefly put: my father fell, hit his head and ended up with a massive swelling on his brain. Surgery was performed but his condition did not improve.
God has made me face just about every fear I have. More on that at another time.
Unfortunately, I have a few more out there and am in no hurry to meet up with. Everytime I hit one head-on, it takes it's toll on me physically, emotionally, financially and ethically. Amazing how it works.
I do know this: the harder I try to hold on to things, the quicker they slip away. There is much to be said for living simply.
And avoiding the rapid pull of gravity when taking blood thinners and anti-coagulants. That's a BIG lesson learned.
