Get Well Soon

I'm feeling for my dad right about now. The last year or so his health has been crummy. It started with a diagnosis of Maniere's Disease [which is a wicked inner ear problem that can send your world spinning at the drop of a hat]. Three weeks ago he got his gall bladder removed after much stomach pain and then Sunday morning he was blind sided with a kidney stone. They tried to remove it today [which makes me weak kneed just thinking about it] but ended up pushing it back into the kidney. The poor guy has to wait a few days and then they will try to break them up.

The cool thing is...my dad keeps a good attitude. You rarely see him without a smile and even when he's on drugs he loves to be around his grandkids. We love you dad and hope you get straightened out soon.

I really miss not seeing your dad each week. Praying that God spares him some of the pain over the next few days/weeks.
