    Good news and bad news

    Let's start with the good news first. My skin is very sensitive to the adhesive of the clear drape that creates the vacuum and seals the dressing to the wound. The wound specialist wants to give my skin a break, so I have just a dressing, no wound vac. I'm unleashed!

    Now the not so good news. I discovered yesterday morning that my estranged father died in April. And no one told me. So he's been gone 5 months but it's fresh to me. And I don't know how to feel. We hadn't spoken in years. But he was still my dad.

      Shelby, there really are no adequate words for this situation. I am sorry for your loss. I am sure it was a shock to find out so many months later about your father. I pray for wisdom that helps you know how to heal from this loss.

      So sad about your father. My children have semi-estranged relationship with their father. Sometimes he reaches out to them and they respond because he is their father. Then he lashes out and verbally hurts them.
      Wishing you the best of luck sending prayers for a speedy healing.

      I'm sorry for your loss, Shelby. Estranged or not, our parents have a big impact on our lives. May his memory be a blessing.
