 August 1, 2021Hello Everyone!    How is it going here at the Worthington home? Well, we can't believe that a month ago today our Daddy was sent to stay at the hospital! Those 23 days of him being there was so hard for us, and went by very, very, very slowly...but the past week of our Daddy being home has gone by fast as we look back at what the past month held.        Our Daddy is doing much better and is full of a little bit more energy, but his cough is still violently there. When he talks it is in a whisper because talking normally causes him to cough, and that gives him a bad headache. So, our days are quiet and spent doing quiet things with him so that he does not over exert himself or start coughing, but he is very happy, smiles, and still (Even though it is quiet) says his "Dad" jokes!    So, in the last month we have seen many ways that our faith had to be tested. People would ask us how we were able to handle all we went through, and we all gave them the same one answer...Jesus! Yes we got through it by sticking together, being strong, helping each other in any way we could as a family...but that is only because of our Lord, Jesus Christ! He held our hands, wiped away our tears, comforted us by just being able to talk to him and feel him near, and by the little miracles that would happen where our Daddy was concerned!! What a mighty God we serve!     One thing that helped us is our sister, Joy (One of the three of us girls) and our big sister, Katarina would help us by saying four words. We would have moments of thinking about "The What Ifs?" or the pain and fear, but both of them would say loud, "But, God is good😊", and it would make us smile and see that God had everything all under control!      No matter how scared we were, no matter how much we missed our Daddy, no matter how is the coming months we will be going through this all over again, God is good, and our Daddy is in God's hands! What do we have to fear? We have a wonderful testimony we have to share with others, and all the glory goes to God, because God is good!!See you later,Love, The Worthington Girls

 July 25, 2021    Hey Ya'll!    Our Daddy has been home now for over 24 hours and what a blessing it is to have him finally home!He is tired and out of breath at many times so he spends his time doing quiet things, watching the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, reading, and is very interested in the three of us girls and what we have been up to in the last month of being away from us!        He is still our playful, joke making, handsome Daddy and the magic of him being here, being able to refill his coffee mug again, making his sweet tea, and hearing him hum songs from our favorite movies makes us SO happy! We love our Daddy, ya'll as you have already guessed!💗    He still has a long road ahead of him, but his positive outlook is so inspirational to us!!!!    Lots of love, The Worthington Girls

 July 20, 2021Hey Ya'll!    Guys, the Lord is good! He is helping our family through one of the most scariest times of our life, but while helping us He is strengthening our faith, hearts, hope, and bringing us closer to him in such a comforting way!     Our brother Nathanael texted this to one of the three of us (Joy) last night when we were dealing with fear and thinking about our Daddy,    For I the Lord will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.Isaiah 41:13    Guys, wow! What a blessing! God IS holding our hands right now telling us not to fear- because He IS helping us!! This verse brought tears to Joy's eyes and helped us to see how faith can move mountains, and how God is helping us strengthen our faith right now to move this mountain in our life...    Another verse is,    Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.John 14:27     It may be hard for our family right now at times to not be troubled or afraid, but it is such a comfort to know that when we get that way we can read these verses and be restored!        Our Daddy is getting better! God HAS blessed us abundantly and the three of us girls speak for our whole family in saying we are so happy and thankful to all of ya'll out there praying for our family and thinking about us!💗    Till next time, lots of love    Love, The Worthington Girls

 July 20, 2021Hey Guys!    Ya'll, we are so happy to be able to tell what we are about to say!! Our Daddy walked 900 steps today on only 2L of oxygen, then 300 steps on 1L, and now the doctor is trying him for a little while on ZeroL of oxygen!!! We hope so badly that this is a sign that our Daddy is DONE with needing breathing assistance and oxygen tanks for a long time! We are hopeful he can return home and get all better for the transplant! This will take many week, maybe even months, but we are headed in the right direction!    God is at work, ya'll!! Thank you, Jesus so much!!    The three of us girls are continuing to pray for more nonstop healing and hopefully soon our Daddy WILL be home with us! Our hearts are overflowing with joy from our Lord as He continues to answer our prayers and the prayers of our other family members! Jesus is our all in all, our loving Father, and the sweetest name we know!💗  Don't forget to check out the previous posts to see how far he's come!!     We will keep you posted!    With love, The Worthington Girls

 July 19, 2021Hey Guys!    Today we learned that our Dad will be in the hospital until the 26th-28th. They doctors plan to keep the antifungal medication and other medications going during that time. They want to get on top of this stubborn infection, get his blood counts up, and get our Daddy able to function on his own!     Once he is discharged from the hospital, he will have to go back "X" amount of times for more infusions of medication and blood. It will be a while before the word "Transplant" will be used because it will take many days for him to heal from this pneumonia.        This is definitely the long haul for our Daddy! We pray that it goes by quickly and that nothing bad or detrimental happens! We also pray for complete healing of all this and endurance for the journey we are on and the road ahead we cannot see.         We are counting down the days!! The three of us girls miss our Daddy so much and long to hug him again, refill his coffee mugs, pick out his shirt for the day, hear his funny "Dad" jokes, and see him smile again in person- not just through a phone screen, smell his beard balm when we kiss his prickly cheek, and just feel the comfort of knowing he is home safe and sound with us!💕I know You're able and I know You canSave through the fire with Your mighty handBut even if You don'tMy hope is You aloneI know the sorrow, and I know the hurtWould all go away if You'd just say the wordBut even if You don'tMy hope is You alone    These are the words to the chorus of the song, "Even If" by the group MercyMe. That is a blessing that God has given us the gift these words say! The words here are truly a comfort to us during this time, and if you have never heard this song- we erg you to do so! We read these words daily to help us remember, God is with us and loves us so much! Our hope IS God alone!! Thank you for reading, till next time!With love, The Worthington Girls

 July 15, 2021Hello Ya'll!    We have good news! Our Daddy was able to walk for ten minutes today using his wheel chair to steady him and his oxygen that has been dropped to 6.5L (but they keep it at 8L as he walks so he does not exert himself)! Our Mom walked beside him and she said that she is so proud of him and how strong he is getting! She said after ten minutes he got tired and took a nap, but that nap is well deserved!! Thank you, Jesus!    After he woke up he wished to take another walk! His appetite is better and he asked for his favorite type of food...pizza!! Yes Daddy, you may have pizza!😘    We are still not out of the woods however because the doctor said he still has weeks of recovery, but each small step will get us to our destination, no matter how long the journey! Lots of love, The Worthington Girls

 July 14, 2021Hello again today!    Our Mom sent us a text today saying that our Dad is okay and was able to get a hair cut and trim his beard and looks a lot better! She sent pictures, and ya'll...we have a VERY handsome Daddy! He is such a trooper and is an incredible man!💗    Our Mom said that Daddy took a nap, and even though his oxygen is still at 8L and his platelet count dropped, he said he slept better for the first time in weeks! See? God still shows us little miracles through hard times!         Something else is that the doctors listened to our Daddy's lungs and heard more movement than they have heard in days! That is another miracle! They are going to try to lowering his 02 requirements as the day goes forward and see how he does.    Something important to pray for is that the doctors are going to let him start taking walks along the hallways of the cancer floor to try and strengthen his lungs and breathing! He will use his wheel chair to guide him and keep him steady and keep using the oxygen. Hopefully we see results soon that are in the positive! Till then,With love, The Worthington Girls
