    Update on my father.

    My father had his surgery on Easter. They couldn't do a spinal so they gave him a general. They kept him sedated and on a ventilator for 24 hrs due to his COPD. He then developed pneumonia in one of his lungs. They transferred him to rehab last Friday. On Monday the had to go back and open up his hip to clean it out. Yesterday the had to shock his heart due to the fact he developed an arythmia. It maintained a normal beat for 5 minutes then returned to the arythmia. He has maintained good spirits throughout the whole ordeal. Have been helping them in any way I can. Please keep us in your prayers, we're exhausted.

    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Will keep your dad in our prayers.

    A man, without force, is without the essential dignity of humanity. Human nature is so constituted, that it cannot honor a helpless man, although it can pity him; and even this it cannot do long, if the signs of power do not arise.
