I just got off the phone with my parents. My grandpa had to have his gall bladder removed early this morning. It was very infected -- my grandma told them it was gangrene. He had a gall stone the size of a pinky finger nail so wedged into his gall bladder and the doctor compared it to a wine cork. Anyway, he will be OK -- but since he was a long-time smoker, his lungs are taking a hit. Every one is saying that my papa will be okay -- but my dad is really scared/worried. And that's what scares me.

Papa will be out of work for 4-6 weeks. He is already being forced into retirement at the end of June and my dad has always been afraid that Papa will work until the day he dies. Now he's afraid that with this and the forced retirement that it means the beginning of the end.

I don't like him talking like that at all. I want/need my papa to live forever!!! So please, keep him in your thoughts/prayers/whatever religious/un-religious thing you can do today. He's a special man and I need him to make a speedy recovery.

Thanks ladies!

Saying a prayer right now!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~
Phillipians 4:6
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Lots of hugs for your Papa!!!!

I'm of the opinion mine will live forever, so I give him hell every time he gets sick (cause usually he's let it go too long and is now extra sick, not just a little sick).
