for my uncle Jerry. I haven't posted about this on here or on Facebook, but he's been having some serious health issues for well over a year now and is currently in the hospital for the second time in two months. Long story short, he's been having a lot of internal bleeding from his colon and it is only getting worse. This time, part of his colon was removed but he was still bleeding internally and had a heart attack the night after his surgery due to lack of blood. He's currently stable, but he had to have open abdominal surgery due to previous scar tissue so he's in a lot of pain and pretty weak.
So, if you are of the praying type, please say a prayer for my uncle.
For those of you that don't know, my uncle has basically helped raised me since I was born and is the only father figure I have known. It absolutely breaks my heart to know how sick he is and I hate that I'm 5 hours away. It was all I could do not to jump in the car yesterday morning and go up there. I talked to my aunt and other uncle yesterday and they told me that there isn't anything I could really do if I went up there and that I needed to think of the safety of this little girl. It's my biggest fear that something is going to happen and I'm going to regret not going up there over Labor Day or this weekend for the rest of my life.
