Finally it is going to happen!

Thank you all so much for the prayers and words of encouragement with the situation with dad. Things are still tough there for me but, I just don't know if I could live with myself if something happened and I didn't try to work through this. They did the other test and his left carotid artery is 100% closed off and there is nothing that can be done with it. The right carotid artery is 50% blocked! So the 50% that is open on the right side is trying to supply blood to both sides of the brain. Not a good thing, as he is not a candidate for surgery at this point. So a massive/fatal stroke will happen when the right carotid artery can do no more. Of course the doctors can't say when that will happen and I know that is up to the Good Lord above. Just a big mess and hard for me to deal with right now, but I did take my kids down to visit him, that went pretty good.

This may be my last post for a week or so. WE ARE MOVING THIS WEEKEND!!!! Richard is connecting the gas to the house as we speak! The electric and water will be connected to the house this weekend, but we have to wait for the phone and internet to be changed over. You know how that goes, they just take their sweet old time coming to do that stuff. If I am at mom's I'll post from there but hopefully it will not be too long.

I am so ready for this move! Everything is still a mess, but hopefully it will be over soon. Actually my couch and chairs are already in the house so all we have to sit on in here is the recliner and the computer desk chair! :( As soon as the electric is connected we will move the refrigerator, freezer, stove, washer and dryer over. Oh and our bed! Hunter and Andrew already have beds in there. Then I will move everything else over as I can. There is just mostly odds and ends junk left in here. The people that bought this mobile home say that it will be somewhere between the end of January and middle of February before they can move it, so that will work out great for me.

I am very excited! I just can't put it into words how excited that I am to be moving in this house that we have worked so hard to build and pay for as we built it. When we moved the couch in the other day, I just sat down on it and cried! Richard just looked at me and smiled.

Anyway, I will be back on here shortly....

It is a good thing that you are trying to have some healing with your Dad while you can. Time well spent and you won't have to live with regrets of having not tried.
I am so terribly happy for your move!! Having built our home on a pay-as-you-go basis and lived in a tiny basement apartment with 2 children for years while we got it livable, I can so relate. When we finally moved in we knelt and offered a prayer to dedicate the space to the Lord. Such a great day!

Blessings for you Kristie ~ it's so admirable that you have built your house and paid for it as you've worked.

Your last post touched me so much; I totally understood your situation. I'll be thinking of you.

Big Congrats to you all on the move! I am so happy for you and your family.
Sorry to hear about your Dad but so glad you and your sis are seeing him and talking things through. The Lord does seem to work in mysterious ways. Big hugs.

Sound like a very emotional time for you. Good luck with the move and glad you reconnected with your Dad before it was too late.
