before I head to bed....

I usually talk to my parents a couple of times a week depending upon how busy I get, or how tired I am. I am glad I called tonight, even though it meant missing one of my favorite shows (Greys Anatomy!) my dad has been having knee problems off and on for years. But lately one of his knees has been bothering him again. He went in and got an MRI on it last week I think and they didn't see anything really that would cause the pain. Chalk it up to old age I guess. However they did see in the scan, some spots in his bone. Very tiny, the tech caught them, his Dr couldn't really see them. But to be safe and to rule out the dreaded "C" word, they are doing a bone scan tomorrow. Not that I am worried, I am sure there is nothing there, but there is just the smallest bit of doubt that I know Satan is trying to plant in my brain. I can't allow that. Because I know my God is much bigger than the tiniest speck on a MRI. So, if you are visiting, or read regularly, please say a prayer for my dad. It would probably be a very rough thing if this came to be something, I am so far away from my family right now, and we can't afford for any unplanned cross country trips. And I can only travel for so long.
Thanks for the prayers everyone!!

I will be saying a prayer for your dad and your family tonight. Sleep soundly (well as soundly as a pregnant woman can... *wink*)
