My slumber was abruptly disturbed at 5:37 am, “Mrs. Kicker, this is Solaris rehab calling, it is not an emergency, but we wanted to let you know, your Dad fell this morning and has a couple of “skin tears”.  Throughout each day that I am not living out of a suitcase at my brother’s lake house, I get a variety of phone calls, texts or  facebook messages about my Dad’s condition, asking for a decision about his care, just letting me know what has happened or a general report on his condition.

You see, in just a few short weeks, we have gone from that ominous Power of Attorney, “just in case something were to happen”, to a daily deluge of health decisions, financial decisions, and business decisions.  A constant drip, drip, drip.

In essence, my life and my family’s life have been put on hold during this season.  Little did we know that when we received that phone call that my Dad had fallen and was in the hospital, that I would spend 8 days in FL, and then come home only for weekends in the weeks that followed and that pattern will continue for the foreseeable future.

I have grown weary, weary of doing good.  That is what this is right? caring for a parent, is good.

29 He gives strength to the weary and strengthens the powerless. 30 Youths may faint and grow weary, and young men stumble and fall, 31 but those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:29-31 has such a good reminder of how the Lord will give me strength as long as I trust in the him and seek his direction.  Every morning  I seek the Lord, ask for direction in my decision making about my Dad and strength to carry through.

My bucket is getting full of the constant drips, but I will not let it overflow!



Such situations are always not so good and people face so many difficulties with the mental stress. There is a need to find the best solution at your earliest to avoid any issue happens.

I'm very sorry for your father's condition. But somehow, I was amazed how you value your father. Nowadays, there are sons or daughters who do not value their parents especially their fathers. They give less value, especially when their father is already old and sick. That's why I admire you for taking care of your father. Keep it up!

These are tough times for you and your family. It's important for you to keep your faith stronger than ever before. Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. God let this happen because of some plan that He has. We only have to trust and believe. Keep on praying.
