Update My dad's still hanging in there! He has good & bad days & each day can be so different. My mom's giving him all the vitamins, etc. that she can & we're always praying constantly that he keeps living. I graduate from grad school (for the 2nd time) on May 15th (if I pass my huge exam) & even though he won't be able to attend the graduation, I sure hope he's still alive to see that day with me! My mom wanted to know HOW I'd prefer her to tell me the news when my dad passes. I told her she can tell me by phone in which I'll be right over. She wanted to make sure I can handle that news by phone or whether I'd prefer being told in person. Thank you for all your continued prayers!
