Dear friends at SI,
I would appreciate your prayers for my family.
*Today I spent the day at the hospital and other places, procuring the legal authority to force my dad into a nursing home. He is refusing to go, but must while my mom (his primary care-giver) recuperates.
*Tomorrow, my mother will have open-heart surgery for valve replacement and double bypass. She is 75 years old. Your prayers for her rapid recovery will be appreciated, but we know her recovery time will be weeks, not days, in speaking of the ability to care for my dad.
*Tonight, ill timed though it was, I was also forced to have a confrontation with my young adult son about some changes he needs to make in order to continue living in our household while attending college. He was verbally compliant, but time will tell.
So, in short, many heavy burdens. Your prayers are appreciated.
