Preoccupied

I haven't exactly had blogging on my mind this week because my dad came down with a serious illness and was admitted into the hospital. Doctors still don't know what this is or what has caused it but he was feeling better yesterday and it was probably due to the fact that it was the first day he didn't have a fever.

I'm in awe of him as a patient. As sick as he's been this week, he's been so kind to the nurses and doesn't have anything bad to say about the hospital or staff. We've had other family members in the hospital before and they were huge complainers and just bad patients wanting all of their demands met. This man is a gentle giant and I'm hoping for him to get much better, very soon.

I hope they figure out what caused him to be sick.

This past week must have been the week for fevers.

And, kudos to dad for being a good patient.

It's quite embarrassing to visit a family member in the hospital when they are less than courteous to the staff.

I'll say a prayer for him. I hope he recovers quickly.

I got to witness in person how nice he was to the staff. I think they like him, too!

I'm sorry about your Dad. I will include ya'll in my prayers tonight. I know it's tough having a sick parent. ang
