    I haven't posted much but I have been trying to stay up on reading as many posts as I can. 2010 ended bittersweet, as we all knew this was out last holiday time with my dad. He has been battling cancer for several years. It is a rare form, he was the 24th person in the US to be diagnosed with it. We all are thankful that God has given us time to say all that we need to say.

    We were informed Monday that the cancer is winning and nothing more can be done. Hospice has been called in. We were not prepared to hear this just yet. I work full time, homeschool our daughter who is a senior this year and now I'm spending time helping my mother with my dad. I am so blessed that my boss has told me to take as much time possible to be with my parents. My DH goes down several times a day to help as well.

    I know God has a plan for all this but we all need your prayers to get through this. My siblings are helping and supporting as much as possible. I'm closest so I am first responder.

    I have already asked that when the time comes, I want some of his cotton shirts to one day make a memory quilt.

    Please keep us in your prayers and when it slows down, I'll be back posting and sewing.

    will keep your family in my daily prayers - saying good bye to a loved one is never easy, no matter how much advance notice you have. Cherish every day with him and hold on to the good memories.

    (((Hugs))), thoughts and prayers are headed your way. It definitely is a gut-wrenching time. Went thru it with my mom then my dad. So sad.

    Prayers to you and your family. It is always too early to go through something like this. I did it with my late MIL. A dear, sweet woman who lost her battle with liver cancer. Hugs to you. We will all be here when you return.

    Hospice is a wonderful program and I know their presence will be a comfort for all of you - be sure to take care of yourself, too, during this difficult time. That may sound silly, but it is advice given to me in a similar situation which I have found to be important but hard to do. My heart goes out to you.

    I know how hard it is to have to call in Hospice. We had to do that with my mother. Do know that your dad will be given excellent care. They are sooo very good at what they do. Also know that, yes, God does have a plan for each of us. All your friends on here will raise you and your family up in prayer. You will be given the strength to get through this.
