I have a new friend, I've known her since early spring but I think we have a pretty good thing going for us. She's become an instant friend and has become a constant in the boys and I's plans almost every week.
Her name is Candace and Candace is hurting.
To quote her own words "My dad is in critical condition in Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. He collapsed in his hotel room Sunday night and was transported to the hospital. His heart (he's had a heart condition his entire life) was not beating right for five days prior. He has been on medication for this for a long time. His vital organs are all fine, as is his heart, but he may have been without oxygen for too long. He's in a non-responsive coma and they're doing brain scans to see if there's any brain activity. Please pray and/or talk to whoever each of you talk to in times like these. We're all hoping for a miracle."
I am reaching out to anyone who may read this. Please keep Candace, her Dad and their family in your thoughts and prayers.
I've been distracted and worried thinking about her and thinking how fast everything you know can just all of sudden be so different.
I'm so sad that she has to deal with this. It sucks, it really just sucks.
