my dad

My dad had a fall in the bathroom last night. His legs just stopped working and he collapsed. He’s in hospital while they do tests. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (degeneration of nerves) about 8 years ago. This might be a flareup and he might regain movement. Or not. Or it might be something else. We don’t know. He’s 66.

All kids just expect their Dad’s legs to move. I’m just a kid and this is just my dad.

  5. “You are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned…For I am the Lord, your God…you are precious and honoured in My sight, and…I love you” (Isa 43:1-4 NIV).

    The above scripture is one I am writing in a card for my very good friend who is like a big sister to me and is undergoing a Cancer operation on Tuesday. Life feels very fragile when those we care about are unwell, and especially when it is a parent or sibling.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
