Walking away is not an option... dialogue must prevail.
"A good listener tries to understand what the other person is saying. In the end he may disagree sharply, but because he disagrees, he wants to know exactly what it is he is disagreeing with." - Kenneth A. Wells
"I do not want the peace that passeth understanding. I want the understanding which bringeth peace." - Helen Keller
Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers. Dad isn't out of the woods but there has been some improvement. Not in a mindset to blog so I limit myself to the brevity of Facebook and to my American Idol chat with awesome friends, but this was a bright spot in a crappy couple of months...
