It Really Is A Good Friday

We got some good news yesterday from my father's doctor. After looking at the latest test, an ultrasound, he indicated that the pancreas was not inflamed anymore and that Dad could probably be home by Monday.

It was such good news. Dad did the best he could by trying to eat some of his first 'real' meal in four days.

It is nice to have him back. Now let's get back to where we were.

Sister Marilyn, me and brother Laurie.

Thanks Ron for being here.

Some of my family at dinner: Adam (future nephew -in-law), brother Laurie, SIL Lynda, moi, sister Mim, niece Brynn, sister Paula, brother Dennis, brother Fred, sister Marilyn, husband Ron, and niece Meghan.


  1. It's amazing to me how the power of a family's love and the effect on a ill person plus faith. I had your family close in my thoughts last night hoping your dad was going to get better. What a relief. Hope ya'll have a wonderful and happy Easter.
