Hard Times

Sorry for my absence from Blogland at the moment. My dad is in the hospital's stroke-ward since Monday;  unconscious since yesterday. They say now it's a matter of days (or less) before he'll be leaving this life. I'm thankful for having had the support of my mum's sister and her husband for a few days this week. They went back home yesterday but then my brother came last night (they missed each other by a few hours).

I don't feel up to much writing just now but I do occasionally look at some of your blogs while in bedrest (neck-rest) position. (I/we are not at the hospital around the clock.) Thankful for your thoughts and prayers.

  1. I offer mt prayers and my hugs. It is so tough to let go of a parent. I have gone through this kind of agony in May 2002. And I miss my dad every day.

    I hope some miracle works for your dad and he gets better.

  2. liebe monika,

    dein post berührt mich sehr.
    ich wünsche dir die kraft, selbst loslassen zu können und deinem vater einen guten übergang zu ermöglichen.
    manchmal liegen schmerz und dankbarkeit sehr eng beieinander.

    love & light to you!

  3. Monica, so sorry to hear this, i will pray for him and for you and your family. just know I will be thinking of you and don't even think about blog land, we will all be waiting for you.

  4. So sorry that you're going through this and good to know that there is family there around you. May The Lord cover you with His love today and in the days ahead, surrounding your with His comfort and support through friendly faces and maybe even some unknown, He has His Ways.

    Warm hugs to you, Monica.
    Love, Heather

  5. I do offer my prayers that you will be comforted in this sad time.

  6. Oh, Monica, I'm so very sorry. I was just going to e-mail you and ask how your dad is doing. Please just do everything that you need to and don't work on your blog unless you want to, we will all be waiting for you. I will be praying for your dad, and to uplift you and give you peace, my friend.
