Another day. Dad took a few steps today. He was very sleepy when we visited. Very down again this evening, feeling sorry for himself. Lying in bed all day… he says his mind wanders. They got the TV going but he is still not happy. I really hope his attitude becomes more positive, it will really make the days easier. Mills said they will have to do another serious op in 2 weeks and then its back to square one. I can't even think about that right now. I can't.
Lord please help my dad, he is feeling very down at the moment. Please help him to see past the rain clouds. Lord, please help my dads intestines, so that Dr Mills doesn't have a big job to sort out. Please give my dad the strength he needs to get through each day. Please send down the healing light of the Holy Spirit to heal my dads pain. Please send a miracle Lord, please send a miracle. Please grace us with your mercy.

Chatted with dad today, he sounded a bit less negative. I kept pointing out the things that he should be grateful for. He seems a bit better. His throat is really sore though, he is waiting for Dr M so he can sort it out.
Ja, from what Dr M said yesterday its gonna be a long journey. Wait about 2 weeks for dad to regain his strength and then another big op like the first one, and then we will be back to square one. So frustrating, but we have to do what we have to do.
Sometimes I wonder if Dr M is the right person for the job, but how is one to know?
I will look out for that book for dad.
