About Bob.

Right now I am in the hosital with My Father-In-Law.
He is sick with dizzy spells.
Yesterday morning, He said the room was spinning,
Lastnight, he was vomiting, and getting up only to crawl to the bathroom.
Tonight, he is barely apeking and opening his eyes because he's so dizzy.
Its an understatement to say that I am a little scared.

I have been assured that this is not life-threatening,
But I still wonder what this holds for our future.
They say he needs to see a specialist, and may not be able to make him functional until he does.

It is an underrstatement to say that I am a worrier.
I am dissapointed in myself.
My Father God has always surprised me and my family with more than I need,
I have been accused of being on a permanent vacation and I am not going to deny it.
Life has been good.
My personal measurement is that my cup has been overflowing for a while now,
But every time we come across a hiccup, my nerves get the best of me.
I wonder how we'll get manage this. How it will affect our future.
Shame on me.

I should have more faith.
I have not had as hard a life as many of my peers or seniors,
But I still lack in measure of faith.

I selfishly wonder how long it will be until he can play with my kids.
When will he be able to drive? Take care of himself?
Will he be able to work again soon?

I found out that these dizzy spells have been on and off for a while.
Thats not as good as if this were the first time the incident had happened.
The difference is that this time, its is not going away.

The good news is that all of the tests so far have been normal.
Nothing shown in his EKG, CT, or blood work. This rules out stroke, heart attack, and tumors.
God has provided already.

Thanks for your support in love and prayer.
Will keep you posted.

P.S. On another Great note:
Today, Jake and I celebrate 8 years of bliss.
Here's to the man that keeps the vacation in my heart and the love in our home.
I love you Jake.


  1. First of all Happy Late Anniversary.... I am so sorry to hear about Bob. Sending him healing angels and energy. If I could I would be there in a heart beat to be your wall I know you know that. Things will be ok, just remember your faith. Love and hugs to you and the rest of the Piepers.

  2. Tell bob I said thank you for driving me up and down the river while I was there and that I hope he feels better.
