Exactly one week ago today, we were celebrating my Dad’s 82nd birthday over lunch in my house. Right after the blowing of the candles on his cake, he took a nap and fell very ill. My siblings and I rushed him to the nearest hospital, i could say it say it was the scariest time for us all. After that day, its been a series of ambulance transfer, family meetings, non stop praying, and big family gatherings at the ICU waiting area. All throughout this ordeal, a lot of love and support has been shown to us, most especially to our wonderful Dad.Im just feeling sad today, realizing its been a week, and I guess we are all emotionally and physically tired, but our faith, hope and unity as a family is stronger than ever. May I kindly ask for more prayers for our Dad. That he gets better soon. And that God willing, we get to spend more birthdays with him❤️🙏🏻❤️
