Pray for Dad
It's very late and I'm very tired but I wanted to ask all my good friends to send a word to the Father for my Dad. I haven't shared with all of you that he was diagnosed a few months ago with pulmonary fibrosis...an incurable disease that scars the tissue of the lungs and basically slowly (and sometimes quickly) robs you of your lung function. Unfortunately, there is no effective treatment to date so the medication he takes is experimental. Even worse, the medicine weakens his immune system. So, my Dad (who I can count on one hand the amount of times I remember him being sick in my lifetime) is sick for the second time since January. This time, he's in the hospital with possible upper respiratory infection (details sketchy...haven't actually been able to speak directly to my Mom yet). Anyway, bottom line, he needs prayer. So, if you would say a prayer or two on his behalf, he could really use them.
