She feels very guilty about having him in this facility...but we tried it at our house for 6 months and my wife about killed herself trying to take care of him...so he is where he needs to be.

Anyway my wife had him out for a trip to his heart doctor and while in the waiting room FIL told DW that he understood that she has had to make allot of tough choices for him, and that he wasn't always able to tell her that. He knew she had his best intrest at heart and was glad that she was the one making those choices. This rare moment of clarity from FIL was just what my wife needed as over the past few month she has been very depressed over her dad and his care.

So thank you God for giving my wife that moment with her father.

Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22

My dad also had a brain tumor and it was a very difficult time for all of us. My prayers go out to your family. May that moment of clarity give your wife the reassurance that she is doing the best that she can for him.

Amen!

Just heard that my uncle made it through his bypass and will be on the road to recovery now. Also my wife's cousin got out of ICU and her sugar levels are returning to normal.

Was just diverted away from DFW because of major storms, baseball size hail and 3 tornados. Praying for BigTex and everyone down there.

My parents finally have a meeting with the NYS DEC legal counsel about "wetlands violations" on June 9th. Prayers are appreciated that cooler heads prevail. Fortunately I will not be in attendance for mine is not a cooler head in this issue.

Not usually one to ask..

Hey all - Sorry I have MIA for a few days. On Wednesday morning I was admitted into our ocal hospital. I have cellutlits in my left leg. It then cause the lymphnodes in the groin area to fight the infection from spreading. They did immediately rule out a blood clot. I am unsure how long I am going to be here. My leg is still very sore, red, and I am unable to put much pressure on it at all.

On top of that, last night, we had a terrible hailstorm in our area. Lots of friends and family had lost of damage to their homes and cars. My wife did call me and tell me that our kitchne window was leaking but she was unable to determine where it was coming from. Hopefully she will be able to figure it out this morning.

Thanks again!

Praying for a speedy recovery for you so you can be up and about. Hopefully the leaking window was just some rain blowing up under the shingles.

Oh, no! Speedy recovery Jason! Glad to hear that there's no clot or DVT. Those can be a bear to get rid of. I'll be praying for you.
