Thankfully it could have been a lot worse, and he's going to recover. A little therapy and he'll have the full use of his hand back (I hope)...which is kinda important for a guy who's a mechanic.

Getting that call at work did bring one thing into sharp focus: I am not ready. I still need him so much, in so many ways. I go to him for plumbing instruction and life advice -- what will I do when I have no one left to ask those questions? He taught me how to use all of my tools! He taught me not to be afraid of anything! He takes my boys to Cub Scouts!

He's the only man that I could ever depend on.

We're going to the store tonight to stock up on Grandpa's favorite cashews.

  1. Oh Katy, I'm so sorry...hope his recovery goes well.

  2. I am sorry to hear this. Your dad will be in my prayers tonight.

  3. I'm so sorry. My dad had four heart attacks, four small strokes, a quintuple bypass and cancer before he died.

    I understand the fear you have right now. You're in my prayers.

  4. Thinking of you. Sick parents are tough to deal with. If you got your spunk from your dad, I suspect he'll be just fine. Hugs!

  5. Sending best wishes for his quick and uneventful recovery...and for yet MORE strength for you!

  6. So sorry. I hope for full and quick recovery.

  7. oh, katy, hang in there. wishing him a fast recovery.

  8. Sending positive vibes and hoping for a quick recovery!

  9. so sorry to hear about your Dad, but so glad he is doing well!! I'll be thinking of you and your family and sending positive thoughts and virtual hugs your way.

  10. Katy, you're dad will be in my prayers. What you said about your dad is exactly how I feel about mine.

  11. You pretty much said what i could not effectively communicate. +1

  12. Oh my, I hope your dad is on the mend! We'll be thinking of him and you!

  13. I hope your dad is doing well. I couldn't deal without mine either. He is one of the best people I have ever known. I wish your dad a good recovery, and strength for you as needed.

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer by day, a house renovator by night, and a single mom. I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015. Then I lost my day job, met Prince Charming, and now work full time demolishing (fixing) his lake house. ;) Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the never-ending disasters, pianos falling out of the sky, floods, threats of financial ruin, & panic attacks. It's like house flipping meets the zombie apocalypse! with lots of kids!
