daddy update

Thanks so much to all of my sweet bloggy friends! Your prayers mean so much to me.. to us! My step mom told me tonight that she came on my blog last night and saw that so many were praying ! And she told my dad. It does mean alot to us.
My father will be having open heart surgery in the morning. I think at 8:00 am. I believe he is having triple bypass surgery, but possible quadruple. I'm unsure as I'm not there and I'm not sure that Carol really understood. so please continue to keep him in your prayers. I've been talking to him everyday. He is sounding very tired. They had him sitting up yesterday, but apparently there were some concerns about his heart last night and his blood pressure is very low, so today he had to stay lying down with oxygen.
He is trying to be brave, but I know hes worried, as anyone would be. He told me tonight that he appreciates the prayers because he doesnt think hes on the "big guys" good side. I told him he didnt have to be. and he told me that hes not ready to leave this world yet. I of course told him that we arent ready for him to go either so not to even think about that kind of stuff and that I would talk to him in a couple days when he is feeling a little better.
aww.. my poor little daddy! I hope he recovers very quickly. I cant stand thinking about him being in any pain.
I went to my lake tonight.. needed a few quiet minutes. what I really need is a beach day. A whole day at the beach.. I will have one soon. I'm off from work friday through wednesday. I may go by myself on friday, as I dont think anyone else will be able to go with me. I can take bears to sew!
I'll post again tomorrow when I get home and let you know that he made it through in flying colors!


HUgs and thanks!

My prayers are with your dad for his upcoming operation. The upside is they have perfected this procedure-- They do this surgery all the time...so he is going to be just fine :-)I've been through this several times with different people and every time it has had a wonderful result. Personally I think the sucky part though is when they come mid way through the procedure to give you an update. Who needs that stress of seeing a nurse walk towards you when your all worried? lol Anywho, be strong, be mindful of you faith and that will keep your head above water--- oh, and eat plenty of chocolate. It has calming medicine in it I SWEAR!

We've had a number of people in our family have bypasses, even quadruple, and it's always gone well. The worst part is recovery, but even then, the person is back on his feet in an amazing amount of time.
