I only intended to be gone for one week, but my dad had a health problem and I stayed with him until he was well. Dad had an infection from old scar tissue in the upper abdominal area, his diabetes contributed to this. I took dad to the treatment room clinic of general surgery at a nearby hospital where they made a small incision and cleaned out the infection, allowing the site to close from the inside out. I helped dad to change the dressing and he was on an antibiotic. He is doing well now. While I was with dad he had other doctor appointments as well; I was very busy!
I have five books that I finished reading while I was at my dad's, all of these books are Christian non-fiction and I will be posting them on this blog. I am reading three other books that are a mix of classic literature and Christian fiction, they are: "Bleak House" by Charles Dickens, "Jude the Obscure" by Thomas Hardy, and "Cure" by Athol Dickson. I had intended to read two Shakespeare books, but I am drowning in books and trying to get caught up. I have a habit of buying more books, or making a trip to the public library to check out books, when I already have a stack of books at home to read; I believe this is an impulsion that all bibliophiles have.
I remember as a child when my parents would take me and allow me to shop in a book store, my problem was that I could only pick just one book, always an impossible decision!
