Asking for Some Prayers and Support…

Last night, my father was admitted to the hospital with severe abdominal pain. It turns out that the walls of his gall bladder have thickened and hardened from his Hepatitis B. The doctors are still not sure if he will need surgery. They have given him some pain meds but he is still in some discomfort. Additonally, they won’t let him eat or drink anything just in case he does need surgery, which is very frustrating considering that he has been here for almost a full day now.

My father has blood clotting problems that stem from his Hepatitis, so even a minor surgery can be risky. :-(

I am currently writing this on my phone, at the hospital, while my father naps. Your prayers and support would be very appreciated…

    Piggybacking here with the comments, but re your homosexuality post – I thought it was well-written and understandable, though I personally accept gay marriage for a different reason. I don’t believe that homosexuality is a sin, but that it is part of the spectrum of differences that God created in our population. In general, sin is a choice, one can refrain from lying, cheating, and breaking either God’s laws or our country’s laws, but I find it hard to condemn someone for a characteristic that they couldn’t control as becoming a part of themselves. That being said, if one of my children were to turn out gay, I would be fully supportive even though I wish that it didn’t have to be that way, solely because society’s treatment of homosexuals is still bigoted and I want my children to have it easier.
