UPDATE- We went to the hospital this morning since my dad was due for surgery. He has a large abdominal hernia due to a previous surgery. My dad is 69, still works 40 hours a week. He retired as a superviser from the Ohio State Highway Patrol. He couldn't stand being retired so he went back to work as a driver for Hertz rental. He loves this job.:)
A year ago he had an abdominal aneurysm. it was very large . After that surgery he had several mini strokes and recovered. Years ago he had had several incidents of cardiac arrest. Let me tell ya, one of the scariest things to do is be the person running with your own dad on a gurney to be life flighted. It really got to me. Anyways, today he cancelled his own surgery . They even had the IV running. Dad said he just didn't feel right about it. He said he just wasn't in a "mind set". I don't know if that was it or not. My dad is not a spiritual person. I think that was more of the problem and it has been weighing on his mind alot. He doesn't know Jesus as his savior. It's really hard to talk to him, he is my dad and has always been the rough and gruff type of guy.
We got him home and he went straight to the recliner to nap. He knows this surgery has to be done. I hope the Lord speaks to him.
