A Frank Update

Thanks for praying for my dad, Frank. He's been in the hospital since the weekend because he fell out of bed and had a good deal of fluid in his right lung. Yesterday, we were all told that he has 'weeks or a short amount of months' left. It's still kind of shocking. Through all of this, we've also come to realize that my mother has some very serious mental health issues. If you remember, pray that Jesus becomes real to him.

So many friends have reached out with support - the texts, phone calls, and messages have been incredible. I've also been sustained by two good friends. One of them checks in with me every few days and drove me around DC's snow deluge in his F-950 to get some groceries to my parents house. The other one prays for me daily. I know this because he texts me every time - that never gets old.

This movement from life to death is a sad progression. What makes it even sadder is when one thinks this life is all there is.


  1. Tony..I'll be praying for you and your family during this time. I will especially be praying that Jesus reveals Himself in a very personal way to your dad.

  2. Thanks Dennis - really appreciate your prayers and friendship!

  3. Praying for you and your family.
