An update on my dad: He came through the procedures just fine and the doctor said his "pipes" were clean. We all were concerned that he might have stomach or colon cancer but the doctor said he didn't have anything internal. The relief on his face was so good to see, and he said several times he was glad everything was okay and it was good to know for sure. When I called my DH, he said "I told you all, he's going to live to be 100" (that's only eight years away). Dad is a tough bird but the last year has been hard on him.
He's home now and him and mom are doing good - probably taking a nap.
1. Lord's goodness and mercy.
2. Beautiful sunny day.
3. My mom teaching me to sew.
