Blog of the Grateful Bear

ramblings of a freelance panentheist {"all things are in God, and God is in all things"} . . . musings on Emergent spirituality, powerlifting, LGBTQueer issues, contemplative prayer, mysticism, cats, music, healing, and more. I like my coffee and my existentialism dark-roasted.

I'm an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor), in private practice in Marietta, Georgia. My writings on queer spirituality have been published in Whosoever and several other magazines. I live in a house-in-the-woods (Bear's Hermitage) in Marietta with Leonidas (Lenny) and Guy, Mighty Warrior Cats, and way too many books.

Dad in Hospital for Pre-Surgery Tests

It has been quite a while since I've written about my Dad's health situation, because it has remained basically the same. Since coming home from the hospital in April (actually a series of 6 hospitals over a 10-month time period), Dad has been growing weaker, because he is no longer able to do physical therapy because of a large hernia on the surgical scar on his abdomen. He was admitted to Emory University Hospital last night for a week of tests to see if he is strong enough to have surgery to repair his abdomen. If he can have the surgery he needs, the hope is that he can begin physical therapy again and regain some of his strength.

Many thanks to all of my friends, online and in "real life," who are continuing to hold Dad and my family in your prayers.
