Walter and Millie 's Human Granddaddy

Just this morning Mom and I received an email copied below from Ms. Cindy,
Walter and Millie's Mom.  Ms. Cindy's Dad is terminally ill
she asked for Blogville's POTP for her precious Dad and her family.
Thank you.

"I will be absent for a while. I might have time to read blogs (I will help cheer me up to read them) but I'm not sure I will be in the mood to comment or do any posts.

My father is terminally ill. He was admitted to the hospital again yesterday for what we thought was a recurrence of bleeding from diverticulitis (like what happened in September when he spent a week in the hospital). The doctors finally did a CAT scan and found a large inoperable tumor eating away at his upper intestines. The problem is that it is causing him to bleed internally and there is very little they can do to stop the bleeding. He had a procedure to try to stop the bleeding yesterday and was still coming out of the anesthesia late yesterday. As of last night he is in ICU and I'm not sure right now that he has been told what is happening.

My sister is on her way here and I think my brother is too. We have no idea how long he has but it is pretty certain he will not leave the hospital or at the very least might be able to be moved to hospice care."

  1. Dear Cindy, Walter and Millie and your entire family.
    Mom and I are so very sorry to read this sad news. We vividly remember a photo of your Dad in the last few years sitting outside and the pups were looking at him with such adoration. All animal lovers know that look and that it means the person they are looking at is kind and loving and their person.
    We send you so many hugs and prayers to your family during this difficult time.
    Hugs Madi and Mom

  2. Oh no.... I'm so sorry that their grampy has to go to the hospital. I cross my paws as hard as I can and I keep their grampy in my thoughts.
