    As some of you that are friends with me on Facebook recent months have been anything but "fun" for me. It started with the loss of my grandmother (whom had battled dementia for years), then 7 weeks later her husband of 62 years and the grandpa that I spent thousands of hours fishing with died suddenly one night. Days after that and before his funeral we learned my young cousin (sophomore at college) committed suicide.

    Needless to say, life is never easy...and I would be lying if tears haven't been shed in the last couple months...

    ...then yesterday we found out they discovered something might be wrong with my father's heart, which haulted and canceled his scheduled back surgery for Monday the 17th. He's been in a world of back pain lately and due to it may not get to hunt much and definitely not out of a stand...however this heart thing is now very concerning. We don't know much other than he now has to see a cardiologist to see what exactly is the matter or if it is nothing.

    Praying for the latter and the surgery can be rescheduled.

    I write all this because I know some of you on this board are prayer warriors, and while I struggle sometimes to ask for prayer directed to me, my prayer request isn't for me it is for my parents. My mother losing both her parents and my father by her side...and now them dealing with his own health issues. Sucks being their son watching them go through so much pain and truly there is nothing I can do.

    If you have room or space, just add them to your prayers for their own healing both emotionally and physically for my father.

    Blessings brothers (and sisters).

    Amended: Oh man, I feel terrible but I forgot to add (thought I had). My father's mother has cancer and after her first bout of chemo she got really sick and spent some nights with breathing assistance at hospital.

    She is going home today though, so that is one small good thing in all the bad. She is contemplating not continuing chemo treatments and just let Lord take here when He sees fit. Prayers for her too...

    When it rains it pores buddy. Your in my thoughts and prayers. I lost my uncle and little cousin last year to cancer. She was only 21 and had a 1 and half year old daughter, plus she was a single mother. Her mom has the daughter but makes you uncomfortable with how unpredictable life is.

    Prayers on the way my friend! Keep a positive outlook and be strong for your mom. Control what you can and the rest just has to happen one way or another. You've had more than your share of struggle the past 6 months so hopefully the good Lord will show you some grace.
