I got a call that my dad was in the hospital this morning.
Growing up, my dad was always the strong one. He was never sick. He never got hurt.
But in the last year, he's been in the hospital more than ever before. Back in winter, he had heart surgery. And now they think his appendix burst, and they are removing it this morning.
All weekend long, he complained that his side hurt. But, he continued to work on the farm, take care of the animals, and play with the kiddos. He could barely stand without doubling over, but he kept moving. This morning, the pain became unbearable.
We'll take any prayers or good thoughts that you can send our way. Because of the blood thinners, and other meds he's on, surgery has it's complication. Please keep him in your prayers.
