Hurt.

I fully expected to post about my amazing vacation that I was able to take last week, until I got a call late last night from my mom. By now you know she resides in Hawaii, and she said she was flying home tomorrow because her Dad (my Grandpa Phil) was refusing surgery for something else that has come up because he was afraid he wouldn't make it through it. Truth is, he's probably right.

I told you all a couple months ago that he has been battling throat cancer for some time, and this time when it came back, they said its terminal. He started chemo and radiation to prolong his life, but since then has had many, many more horrible complications.


He's going home from the hospital today, to return home, gather his things, and go to Hospice. I'm angry, I'm scared, and I'm hurt. I don't want him to go. He's too sweet a man to go so soon. Although we aren't that close, I want him to know the Lord. I spent a majority of last night in tears, and in prayer. I know that some of you who read my blog aren't very spiritual, but if you are, could you please say a prayer for him and my entire family?

It would mean everything to me.

  1. I am praying for you right now! I pray that your grandpa finds time to accept God's love for him in his limited time left here on earth. Last July I lost my grandmother very suddenly, and she was my last living grandparent, and I remember how mad & upset I was with God for letting this happen but he reminded me how he is in control of everything & comforted me through the hard time. I pray that you can find some sort of comfort & peace over the next few weeks!

  13. This is never easy. Do you know for sure he doesn't know the Lord? Hospice and being able to go at home can be such a blessing, but I understand there's no amount of condolences worth anything if his eternity isn't secure. Thinking of you all!
