when life throws you curves

DSC04012 At the end of November, my Dad had severe pneumonia AND some kind of infection.

His breathing was kind of shallow and when I face-timed with my brother (love technology!), he wasn't sure "which way" things would go.

One thing I learned when my mom was sick was that we should "hope for the best and also prepare for the worst".

So last week, with Satoshi's understanding, I was able to fly to Hawaii.

I am relieved that my Dad was moved from the hospital into a skilled nursing facility yesterday.

And I hope that he will continue to get stronger, maybe even get some of his mobility back.

I appreciate all of your emails and concerns.

I am flying out today, be well everyone.

I know how tough it can be when there's a loved one overseas that is in need -- hope your dad gets better soon.

Glad to hear your Dad is on the mend. I'm sure it makes for a stressful flight there, not knowing how things will go. I hope your flight back went well. Continued prayers for your Daddy and family.
