Preface: Darin’s Father has been battling kidney cancer since last year. Recently he has a growth in his lung that had doubled in size and he is scheduled for surgery on August 2. Trying NOT to worry
too much, we didn’t tell him 6 weeks ago when he had the biopsy done. But we promised to tell him this time if the news was not good. We wrote and told him of our concerns and also talked with the Mission President to alert him in case Chad was not as focused or if he was overly concerned about his dad. Chad
Buenos Dias Padres!
11 July 2011
I will enlighten everyone with my typical email from the week so that it will be able to be posted on the blog. This week was pretty difficult for me. I was all over the place emotionally. It was pretty tough to stick to the every day grind, while trying to balance all these crazy emotions and trying not to think too much about Pops. It was hard, some days I was just in this "blah" mode where I really didn’t want to do anything but to just sit there and think about everything that is going on. (Which is exactly what we didn’t want to happen as we informed him of his dad’s health concerns.) But luckily I have a really good companion that helped keep me going and doing what I needed to be doing. He wasn’t too pushy, he just understood that it would help me more to go and do the work I have been called to do,rather than sit at home and have a bunch of time to think. So I was blessed that once I started to work, I had a clear mind and worked hard. (That’s our
boy!! J ) Chad
Well take care and have a good week!
