Wow, this feels so weird. You haven't heard from me for a while. Honestly I can't remember the last time I posted.
I have been busy, some good, some bad. My dad has been keeping me fairly busy these days and he is why I am here today. I am off to sleep right away, I have to be up in five hours. Mom and I are following my dad into the city for surgery,( he is going by ambulance). It has been a long two and half months of emergency rooms, hospital rooms, CT's, ERCP's, some SOB's but mostly lovely wonderful healthcare workers. Tomorrow my dad should be in surgery for at least five hours and up to 10 or twelve. Of course there are risks for anyone but the older you are the higher the risk and my dad is in his early 80's. He is a tough ole bun yack (Ukranian), but this is going to be very tough on him and he needs your prayers, positive thoughts.
I drew this image over a year ago and it actually is a sketch of my dad with my son, after we had gone fishing.
I am giving this image for free right now and I will leave it up until my dad's surgery is over tomorrow. In exchange I would appreciate:
1. If you pray, please pray for my dad, Norman, that his surgery goes well and everything turns out good. If you belong to a prayer group or have a prayer chain in your parish, please add my dad to your prayer chain. Also, could you leave me a comment letting me know if you did and how many are on your chain. I would love to tell him how many people are praying for him and from where.
2. If you do not pray, maybe you are of the positive thinking family, and believe in asking the universe for what you want, could you send out positive thoughts and wishes into the Universe for him.
3. If you do neither, just love art and that is what brought you here, then could you please take this image, make something lovely with it and give it to someone who could use some cheering up. Send some love out in the form of sharing your gift/love of art and craft.
Big thanks from my dad!
