Just a Little Jealous -Guest Heart Thursday

I was sitting on the couch at my parents' home.  Sissy Clytie was off to the left.  Ribet was peacefully sitting in my lap dozing away, when Mika the Dragon Cat insinuated herself between Ribet and me.  But her motive wasn't to be close to me.  Mika is Sissy's cat and SHE was trying to make Sissy jealous.  What a riot.  After a few hours, all was well as she perched on Sissy's shoulder nuzzling her neck.  If you notice--Mika's nose is shaped like a heart.

Daddy Update:  Dad is in the VA Hospital.  He still can't speak or swallow.  He consented to a feeding tube a few days ago, but pulled it out in the night.  I don't know if they've been able to put it back.  Mom has been with him most of each day.  They sit and hold hands--he kisses her fingers and by this he tells her how much he loves her.  I don't know how much longer Daddy will be here--he's a grand old soldier and he is a fighter.  I would especially appreciate your prayers not only for Dad, but especially for Mom.  Also please pray for my darling Sissy--since I can't be there as much as I would normally--because of my husband's condition--she will be doing a LOT to help our parents.  Thank you so much.

Hubby Update:  My Beloved has cancer.  It is worse than we first thought.  He will be having surgery in early December.  His cancer is pervasive, so they'll need to remove the entire prostate.  They won't know, until surgery, if it has spread to other areas.  We are deeply thankful his surgeon's reputation is the best in the Pacific NW, USA, in robotics surgery. Please pray for my husband's peace of mind and that I will have strength to do what must be done to help him.  I am so grateful to you dear friends for your loving thoughts and prayers.
