Update on life

Hello, blog world!

I wanted to stop in and give an update on life. I haven’t been around the blog much lately and thought I’d fill you in. Long time blog readers will remember a few years back sometime around 2009 when I had talked about Erik’s dad getting sick. It was a shock to us all, and the starting of some very trying years. He was diagnosed with multiple myeloma cancer. Since then, he’s been in and out of the hospital, nursing home, Erik has been his primary caregiver, and for the majority of the time he’s lived with us.

He’s a very strong-willed person and has put up a tremendous fight sticking around longer than expected, but sadly, he’s now ready to go. This past week he’s been in the hospital, has said his good-byes, and is now waiting to be able to end his fight. He’s been in a lot of pain, and is simply tired and ready to be done. 

If you would, please say a prayer for him and our family during this very difficult time. We know it’s for the best and that he will no longer be in pain, but it certainly doesn’t make it any easier to go through. 

I will keep you updated but for now … a few pictures from the past few years …
