This has been by far the hardest week I've ever had to endure in my life. My father went in for a routine surgery one week ago and since then, there has been bad news and downward turns, complication after complication arises daily. I'm now on my seventh day at the hospital and have not been home at all. I figured a little blogging might soothe my soul. We're praying for his health every minute of the day and trying to take one day at a time, but it's definitely a rough emotional roller coaster. My dad is the bravest man I know and he's so incredibly strong. I know he's going to make it. He has to.
