holdin in there

Unbelievable but the old man took a couple of assisted steps this morning - hopin to b moved to nursing home tomorrow. End stage COPD , double pneumo, heart issues & he figures he'll b home in a day or 2. I don't know about that..

But I DO know I got the blessing of him bein lucid again so I could tell him how much I love him - and see the look in his eyes when he told me he loved me too.

From that old mountain man it was More priceless than diamonds to me and I am blessed.

And thank u friends for words u have given - means Much when family drama is trying to force me away -till today - my sick old man has given me strength and I WILL not let them overpower me.

Amen.

I am so happy for you. Tell your dad I am thinking of him. You pull your strength from where ever you can. Know there are people out there who only hope for the best for you.

Hugs and prayers :) :)

Didn't I tell you? He just wants to be sure you're there. My heart welled up when you told him you loved him and he said it back. You're right ... words more precious than diamonds. xxoo

Oh, Mia...you're making me cry. I know it meant the world to him that you were there and that he could hear and say those words. I'll be thinking of you both.
