Dad Went to His Knees in Front of Mom on Valentine's Day

Today I called my mom to see how she and my dad are doing.  She said that they were planning to go to church, but when it was time to leave Dad stood up and passed out.  He went to his knees in front of her and finished up with his head and shoulders in her lap.  That was the end of their plans to attend Sunday school.  She joked that he was on his knees to say he loved her because it was Valentine's Day.  LOL.

Other than that mishap, they have done fairly well since his procedure this past Wednesday to have a stent placed in his esophagus.  He has to eat slowly and many times a day to keep up with his nutrition needs and not get food stuck in his throat.

He has to sleep with his upper body propped up and so Becky and Dan got him a foam wedge pillow that he says is very comfortable.

Tomorrow since Rick and Sarah both have days off from work, our family will drive over to visit them for a few hours.

Friday Becky and Dan are leaving to visit David and Holly and Lily by Portland and Dan's dad in Kelso, so I will go over and spend Friday-Monday with Mom and Dad while they are gone.

Thanks for your continued prayers on behalf of our families.  We appreciate it much.

Oh Marsha I'm so sorry you all are going through this difficult time. I have so many good memories of going to Grace Baptist and your dad baptizing & marrying me. Wish we lived closer to be there for your parents. We'll Continue to keep you all in our prayers. Hugs to you all

Thanks, Jean. Yes, it is hard and yet we know his final destination and so does my dad. He is a trooper. He does not complain. It is very hard for my mom though. I'm glad she can keep her sense of humor. The fainting is very scary to us. So afraid he is going to injure himself seriously one of these times. So please pray about that.
