hey there say, all...

won't be here for a bit... down time, keeping my mind on my daddy... you are not forgotten...

won't say much more,as to my dear dad, as, don't want to overstep, as mark (chappy) belongs
here too, not just me... and might rather share, later or not... too...

but, me, being that, yep: sensitive gal little girl type,
i just needed to let folks know where i will be...
not being rude to just 'drop out or anything'...

but: i just can't seem to encourage folks, or share much, while i am thinking on my daddy, and mom and all our family... full time...

side note:
i had a few thank you's and paint-gifts for a few folks:

my mom always taught me about gardens: you can give flowers from them, to others, and they bring joy...

my paints, which were a huge HUGE gift through johntp, and a few others that chipped in along the way, are my way to share-and-give life back to you all, from my 'PAINT GARDEN'... and dream-catcher garden, as well...

god watched over my climber-brother all these years, and i just need to send that gratitude back, from all that is in my heart, for that:
so i give what i can here:

and of pray for you all, and for the climbers that i even don't know, out in that huge greatoutdoors...
it is my huge 'thank you' to god, going out into the climber world, and to otherss, as well...

so, i will back in a bit...
please, for those that pray... and send out well wishes and all that,

ESPECIALLY, this next 5-7 days...
thank you so very much... with all my heart...

you don't need to post much here, but please, hope someone will bump it for the weekend crowd...

sister-love to you all and god bless...
see you when the time is right again...
sure am not forgetting you all--nor leaving you out,
am just sad for my daddy and my family... :(

I hear all you say in your post Neebee. When the ones we love experience severe illness it impacts the entire family in many ways. I think I can safely say that all of us on Super Topo will respect your absence here while you spend your precious time with your Dad and family.

Our prayers and best positive thoughts will be with you all.

Much Love, Lynne

*won't mention all the other worries...

everyone is taking such good care of my mom, too...
well, will be back again, later...

hey there say, donini and snakefoot,
thank you both, for stepping in...

it is very odd right now for us all...

wanting to do something, when all we can do is wait...

keeping myself busy doing what me daddy always liked me doing,
helps, while i wait...

well, i better go... i've been spending the time
by laying down praying and playing the piano...

i can always hear him now, when i do this:

"...sounds good... keep it up..."
(man of few words, few actions, but man of busy-brain and kind heart) :)

god bless...

Good thoughts sent, Neebee, to your Daddy, Mom and family and you!

I know how it is, my Dad was ill for a long time. Just got my Mom through some back surgery. Hang in there and think positive!

I've been reading this forum for maybe 4 years, and you strike me as perhaps the Kindest, and perhaps most thoughtful person here. Sending positive vibes towards you.

Dear Neebee, you know we are all pulling for your dad, and you and Mark too.

We come together, like you did for my mom.

hey there say, all...

just got an update... they have been tricky to get, as, things keep changing...

thank you for all the prayers and good vibe wishes and feelings...

here is my update that i am sharing, will put it in quotes:

Dear folks… am letting those that love and are concerned about our family know how things are going for my daddy: had all started from the infection when the pacemaker was put in…
In hospital, his lungs started getting affected… was put on respiration/oxygen, but then, had to go on the ventilator…

1—was weaned off ventilator, and a little alert for one day, and got to know he was supported by our love… but could not keep breathing well, and had to go back on it…
2—was due to sepsis infection (very serious) and how it was affecting body, and fluid thus getting
in the lungs (and his lungs were weak anyways)…
3—is now on dialysis to get this out of the kidneys, as well as on the ventilator…
4—will be a rough week, and we can only pray and wait, and hope for infection to clear out, so
he can get back to trying to get well…

YOUR PRAYERS and well wishes are so greatly wanted… thank you so much for
letting me get this burden out and my worries, by my sharing with our friends…

daddy will be 84 on jan 16 th… i pray he will be at least past this rough spot, by then…
but it is in god’s hands and the docs… we all know that… and are trying to be strong…

give THOSE that you love a hug today… and tell them you love them sooooo much… amen…
god bless…

well, will come back and take a taco-read, later... i have found that i need more things to keep me busy, the longer this hard rough part goes on for my daddy... it is kind of like what:

a cabin fever thing? just waiting... and waiting hopefully for a 'spring of life' though, instead of the spring-season...

cabin fever, you pretty much know what you are dealing with however, but
this type of 'cabin fever' the 'seasonal change' is trick:

changes can be fast, or slow, but either way--they can be dangerous and scary, or: they can be good, strong, healthy and successful...

time will tell, in this 'rough winter' of ours...

thank you all for being great climber-taco buddies...
and love and prayers to YOUR loved ones, as well...

give them hugs and tell them you love them...
another 'amen' ...
night for now...

will come back and 'walk the taco streets' perhaps in the 'wee hours'...
thanks again for your friendships...
this just in

Keeping busy really does help, Neebee. Hopefully your painting will keep your mind at bay. Good thoughts your way.

Dear Neebee,

Sending up the prayers for your Dear 'Ol Dad. I didn't see your thread earlier, but will keep you and your family in my daily prayers during this time. I especially pray for your strength so you can do your best for your Dad.
