Back Home

Well I did finally come back to California to rescue my husband from my children - My dad is doind tons better- and although his circumstances are still the same God is beginning to change his heart. The day I had gotten the call that "he wouldn't live through the day" he had stage 4 lung cancer, complicated by pneumonia and a heart attack. He is on the mend though for now. He was released from the hospital on the 16th of July. His job now is to continue getting some of the weight he lost back on, so that his oncologist will,once again, consider beginning chemo. They are continuing with radiation for now because of how well his tumors have responded to it.

WHile I was ready to head back to my family out here, in many ways coming back was bittersweet. If something changesel for the worse I will not be able to travel back until after the baby is born and I clear my post partum check ups. I am thankful for the time I did have with my dad and that he even accepted a Bible from me as well as opportunities to share Christ's love with Him. Keep praying... he is more open to a Gospel message than he ever has been before in his life.

God is good. I've prayed for your dad, and will continue to as the Holy Spirit brings him to mind.

I'm so glad to hear that your dad's heart is opening and you've been able to share God's love with him. I'll be keeping your family in my prayers- keep us posted on everything.
