When your mother calls and says she needs to talk to you and your sister together, you know the news is bad. So, here is my family’s very bad news: my dad has kidney cancer. We were hoping it was just in his kidney, but it turns out it’s all over the place. It is shocking, and terrible, and it sucks.
I feel pretty powerless nine hours away (even though I know I would be nearly as powerless if I were there). But I can pray, and if you are a praying sort of person, I ask you to pray for my dad and our family.
And whether you are the praying kind or not, you may enjoy these photos of my dad and Zoe, taken when we visited in September. We love you, Papa!
