We are thankful for this Caring Bridge tool as a way to update family and friends about my dad's health journey. Thanks for prayers and support through this next step in his cancer journey - it is scary and sad at times without my mom who was an excellent caregiver and his best friend. At this time, this is a private site for updates to family and close friends, and we respectfully request that the profile not be shared in social media. This is already out of my dad's comfort zone, but a tool that he feels might be helpful to update concerned family and friends and protect our energy and time rather than constantly explain and repeat all this sad stuff. I'll try to update every week or two.
If you are wondering what to do to help - specific prayers for strength and comfort; also, listen/read with the intent to understand and support. We are in uncharted territory compared to past health challenges. Now, there are challenges, more advanced, and layers of grief that he faces. Thanks for your support.
