My Daddy Darling’s Birthday

Today is my daddy darling’s 59th birthday!

We celebrated last Saturday with a bit of a braai and a visit with our family, and even the weather was perfect! Daddy darling was battling a wee bit with his dialysis that day, but he was in a good mood for the most part, and we had a glorious afternoon. Sister B and her hubby and two of their boys were there, sister C and her new baby were there, da Bruvva was there briefly, daddy darling’s brother and his wife and children, and myself and my Glugster, and we all ate too much, watched rugby and laughed at daddy darling’s dogs and the children playing.

The family contributed with an assortment of breads and salads, so I figured we’d take dessert! You can read about this monster chocolate cake over here… And the attached pictures are of my daddy darling hamming it up for the camera, and then my mommy and daddy darling together as dad cuts his birthday cake!

We finished the cake by the way, it was all gone!

My daddy darling has not had much fun in the last couple of years. He is an insulin dependent diabetic, and currently he is undergoing Peritoneal Dialysis (which is a procedure that has to take place every 5 hours). He has been tested and poked and prodded so much in the last while… but it meant he was added to the waiting list for a kidney transplant! I pray every day that a donor kidney will be found for my daddy darling soon!
