Hard Day

The past 24 hours have been crazy. Yesterday afternoon, I received a call from my SIL to tell us that my hubby's Dad had been taken to the ER. A couple hours later, she called back to say that he was going to be admitted for some further testing, but it didn't look like it was a heart thing. A few hours later, he was gone.

This was totally out of the blue, and I don't think it's really "hit" any of us yet. My hubby is now on a plane, heading to Arizona. The kids are still not healthy, and our son is continuing to run a fever so taking them along and/or leaving them with others really wasn't an option. Present plan is that he'll fly home on Monday. Please pray for the entire family - we're all in shock, and simply focusing on what needs to be done. This next week - and many more after - are going to be hard.

Here are a few pics:

Good-bye, Dad. You'll be missed.
