Now of course, my mom is scared and worried about finances... what a mess!!!.. I am going back to St Louis later this week, but I have to work tomorrow. Between the 5 of us girls, somebody will be there each day...

This really makes me want to take care of myself even more...

I'm sorry to hear this, continued prayers for him, you and rest of family..I can't imagine how difficult this is for everyone. Yes, this does make you realize how important health is.

Thank you Meek, it does make me feel better to come here and be able to talk about it, knowing that you all will understand and have my back.. thank you soooo much!! I know we will get through this, but it is a tough one... Lets all take care of ourselves so OUR children don't have to go through this...

Thank you Shari.. I really appreciate your prayers... I know they are being heard.. and there is some lessons in this for sure...

I have not felt like eating much today myself, and that is a good thing today. If I get a good day under my belt, it will make tomorrow easier to also do well... I am NOT going to let food get in the way of becomming a healthier me..

oh Deb, honey, I am so sorry

Your poor Papa! I pray he is on the mend soon I hope he starts to see things in a different perspective...After all, he still has his life to live. Hopefully, he'll see that!

BTW - is he doing better eating wise?

I pray for all of you!!! You and your momma and sisters to be strong for him and for him to start feeling better soon!!!

OH no, I'm so sorry to hear this. This is all you can do, outside of prayer for guidance and support with helping your dad get through this and your mom. Of course, I'm thinking of you and family...hope things get better.

Thank you Shari.. I am here on my computer doing some research on diabetic diets while he sleeps. My Mom finally left to get a bit of rest and I am grateful for all the great nurses and doctors here.

They had to put him on antidepressants along with everything else, so he won't just give up! I know they take some time to work, so prayers he hangs in there and allows the healing to happen. I know he hates it in the hospital, but there is no better place for him to be right now.

Thank you to all sending out prayers, we greatly appreciate them.

On a positive note I have not thought about food or an eating plan all day.

thank you Meek!! I KNOW you KNOW.. and I am thinking of you and your family today also..

He woke up and besides being groggy, sounds like his old self. He is at least talking and he was not doing that before surgery. Thank the lord! Thank you all for your prayers. Now we have to get him to eat.

They said bring in something he loves normally.. So Mom is making some of his favorites just to get something in him! They said since he has not eaten anything today, he can have what he wants and it won't hurt his diet.

I am sure he is deep in ketosis, but for a diabetic that is not good. We WILL get him to eat! .

So glad to hear that your dad is coming around.
You're right! Ketosis is not good for a diabetic, which is why DH cant follow the plan completely. He is eating more on the lines of SB.

Thank you Meek, yes he said nothing sounds good, and didn't want food, but he was very thirsty, so Mom gave him the watermelon to start out. He asked for more.. this was a good thing! They don't care that it is high in sugar at this point, they just want him to eat! He also had some burger, so its a start.

I am exhausted, heading to bed.. thank you all again.. much love!

Thank you Shari, I just need someplace to vent and chat and why not my own journal? PLUS you ladies know me, and know I try to be positive most of the time, but when I'm not, I can say it and not be judged.. Thank you all.. I am so grateful...

I will definately keep you all updated...
