Thank you to everyone who has said they are thinking of me and praying for me and my family. I don't know hardly any of you that read this blog and that is so completely amazing that you would do that for me. I thought I would just give a quick update. My dad is doing well-he is feeling well that is. He was supposed to come home right after we got here, then he was supposed to come home last week and now they say maybe by Wednesday if we are lucky but he just had an intense round of chemo on Sat so the chances are slim. We live too far away from a hospital so they aren't letting him go. His white blood cell count is low right now but other than that he is feeling fine. He has not been outside in almost 2 weeks. The longest I ever knew my dad to not go outside previous to this is 1 day. He is bored and hungry in the hospital. He has diabetes that weren't severe before this but have become so because of the chemo. My method of helping/comforting has always been cooking. Now I feel lost because the pies, bread, cookies or cakes I would have made may now harm him more. We just keep making him soup because he loves that. I wish he could come home before I have to leave on Saturday; visiting a farmer who knows nothing but working off the land all cooped up in a hospital room is lousy. We were blessed with a miracle that even though the day before we went to visit last he was told no children could come to his room, the day we went the doctor said it was okay if they were healthy. He hadn't seen the girls yet since we have been here so at least he got to do that. This was the first time he has seen my little pumpkin in almost a year.
