View Full Version : More bad news........

February 5th, 2014, 02:31 PM
Looks like it is never ending.......

My dad called this morning telling me they just came home from the hospital.....
He fell this morning in the livingroom, his shoe got caught in the carpet, new shoes with a little profil on high carpet,
so he fell right on his face.......screaming for my mom.
His nose was bleading, and his arm was hurting really bad, his arm landed on the corner of the coffeetable.
They went to the hospital and x-rays, and he broke his upper arm real bad......on more than one spot, he is in a lot of pain :(

I have to teach class tonight, but taking my phone and be on call if he wants to get back to the doctor or hospital, he has so much pain, I hate to see him like this.
He was up early bacause we had planned he should make me a permanent designwall today.........

I feel so bad for him, my big friend my dad he has so much pain and can hardly walk even since it is his arm he made a fall from standing right on his face,......he is a tall man.......

Last night I did not sleep at all after Jan not getting the job, I prayed and cried all night, this morning my dad his phonecall........it has not been a great year so far......

Please think a little about my dad, he needs it right now.

Last week I had so much energy after my plan on making memoryquilts took of, now all the energy is gone in two days.....
Next post is more happy I hope.

Thanks for reading the whole post, again it is way to long and has nothing to do with quilting......:(

Have a great evening my friends, I am off to teach a group of ladies how to become a hairdresser!

Love to all, thanks for being such great friends!

Ugh, poor dad! I'm real familiar with falling on my face like that, but thankfully I've never hit any furniture on the way down. Hopefully the pain will settle down soon for him - it's usually bad for the first 24 hours then it lets up.

Hugs for you. Hang in there, it will get better soon.

February 5th, 2014, 02:59 PM
Ah hun. I feel so bad for you. Like they say, when it rains it pours. You gotta remember though, there is a rainbow when the sun finally shines. Still praying for you and Jan. I will add dad in there.

Oh dear...so sad to read this and I'm so sorry about your dad and Jan not getting the job. Better things to come! ((((HUGS))))

Will keep you and your dad in prayer.
This is a s scripture that has seen me through many difficult times.
43 But now, thus says the Lord, your Creator, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel,
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name; you are Mine!
2 “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they will not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched,
Nor will the flame burn you.
3 “For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;

Lean on the Abba Father. It is from Him that peace flows.

So sorry to hear about your dad's fall! I hope he can get to feeling better soon.

I was at the orchestra hall last year and a woman walked in and tripped on the carpet. She fell directly on her face. I saw it happen, it was like I was watching something happen in slow motion, I couldn't get to her quick enough to stop her fall. She was hurt pretty badly. So I can just envision how this happened to your dad.

I hope and pray things will get better for you and your family.

You certainly have had a difficult time this year. Some days we wonder how can I deal with all of this , how can I get through this and for me I simply say God help me, show me. And we do get through these certain days when nothing seems to go right . It is good you have a good cry , you are entitled. Wishing for things to turn around for you and tomorrow is a better day for you.

February 5th, 2014, 04:15 PM
Sending good thoughts your way and hope things turn around for the better for you and your family really quick

February 5th, 2014, 05:12 PM
Oh my, your poor Dad took a really bad fall. Let us know how he is doing, and we'll keep the prayers coming. May

February 5th, 2014, 05:53 PM
So sorry, dear Klasien. Praying for your family. Try to get some rest.

Your year is certainly off to a bad start. I know it is easy for me to say stay strong but it is definitely coming from the heart along with many prayers for you, Jan and your dad. You have to stay strong and know that a lot of people care. God bless.

February 5th, 2014, 06:13 PM
I'm joining all the prayers. And although I know that Scripture is much more helpful, for now I'm just going to sing this little song for you. "The sun will come out tomorrow, butcha gotta hang on til tomorrow. Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love you tomorrow, you're only a day awaaaay." Hope that gave you a little smile til all the prayers kick in.

February 5th, 2014, 06:27 PM
I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad. it seems like things like this happen in bunches. Now it's time for things to turn good for you once again. Hang in there, Klasien. HUGS, Barb

I am so sorry. Your family is definitely in my thoughts and prayers.

Klasien, I am so sorry you are having such a hard time of it lately. It is never easy to see Gods plan for us, especially when we are in the midst of turmoil. The good news is, your dads fall could of been much worse, he could have broken much more than his arm. I lost a truly loved man in my life to a fall. He fell and hit his head, never to wake up again. Try to find the positives in your life, I know it is hard...but they are there. I will pray for strength for you sweet klasien. That you might travel this weary road you are on quickly and that things will turn a new for you and your dear family. Hugs to you!

February 5th, 2014, 09:57 PM
Klaisen - I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad. I'll put him in my prayers along with your son and other going's on in life. Wish I could give you a in-person HUG.


February 5th, 2014, 10:38 PM
I am so sorry about your dad falling down. I hope the pain goes away quickly. What a shame that Jan didn't get the job. Hopefully, better days are coming your way really soon. :)

February 5th, 2014, 11:18 PM
Hugs to your dad and hope he gets well fast.

Keeping all of you in prayer...I am so sorry you are going through all of this!

February 7th, 2014, 08:06 PM
Sorry that all this is happening; you are certainly in need of that rainbow. Keeping you and your family in my prayers that things will turn around soon for all of you.

February 7th, 2014, 09:37 PM
So sorry Klaisen, I will keep your dad in prayer. He will heal, Jan will be employed. You will get your happiness back. Spring is coming, keep the "Light" in your heart. God's Blessings.
