Going home

Well, today my Dad was released from the hospital. Thanks to all of you who are praying for him and my family. I appreciate your thinking of us at this time. Dad is doing remarkably well. His feet aren't nearly as swollen, he can breathe deeply and has been able to sleep soundly the past 3 nights. He's feeling great! I'm so glad I was able to come here and help him through this difficult time. I feel much closer to him now.

Since all is going well, I bought a plane ticket home. I'll leave early (6am) on wednesday morning from Tulsa. My wonderful in-laws let me borrow their car during these past few days. I'm so blessed to have such wonderful family members.

My current plans for when I return home is to begin substitute teaching to help relieve our school loan debt and to find a voice instructor who can help me improve my singing talent. My dad has encouraged me to continue studying voice even though I won't be in school this quarter and I may not ever gain a degree in music. I recently subscribed to a magazine called Classical Singer and it has lots of advertisements for competitions and workshops around the world. I've always wanted to study abroad and this may be my way of doing just that - even if it's for a 2 week workshop!

I'm glad your dad is doing so well. I'm also glad that even if you aren't in school, you are going to continue to stay with music. I'm excited to hear how the teaching goes! What age will you be teaching?
