My Dad
My computer has been silent for a couple of days - very unusual, and it must be wondering where I've gotten myself off to. Well....we've been at the hospital for past couple of days. My Dad had two more stents put in early this morning. It was a scheduled procedures, and he is doing very, very well. We thank God for His unending goodness.

The heart cath. was scheduled for early friday morning, but because his kidneys were not functioning as well as they should have been (due to the dye from the earlier stents) the doctor put it off for one day. They gave him a special medicine to flush his kidneys and by this morning everything was looking better.

My Mom has stayed with him the whole time this time, and he is much more relaxed. He just doesn't like being separated from her. After 63 years, that is certainly understandable :-) If all of his labs come back okay, he will go home in the morning. He, of course, says he's going home no matter what! An ideal patient he is not.

You have all been so sweet to ask about him and pray for all of us. I am so thankful for all of you. After calling family and close friends I had to check in with y'all. You have truly become an important part of my life. I've tried to read all your posts, but I haven't had time to comment. Hopefully, life will slow down just a bit and I will be able to visit longer soon.

Those procedures when they get up in those older years are kind of scary. I'm so glad he's doing so well! My folks have been married 62 and I can't imagine one without the other. They were literally babies when they got married.

Thank you Lord for healing and grace.

Bless you, Linda. I'm thinking of you today and praying.

I will keep praying for a complete recovery for you dad.

I just love how your dad hates being seperated from your mom. That is how God feels about us too.

I'm still praying for you and your dad. Please feel the reassurance that you are loved and prayed for even if you don't get the opportunity to comment. You are an inspiration to many and that is a blessing indeed! Have a great week.

Married for 63 years - what a blessing to have parents who have been together that long! Understandable that he doesnt want her away from him, and vice versa.

Just seeing this now... I am glad your Dad is home and doing okay. May His peace fill you all and continue to carry you along.

Dear Linda, I read the post about your dad's heart attack, and am so thankful the God put him in the hands of that wonderful doctor. Glad to hear also, that he came through the stent op with such good results.
I'll keep him and your family in my prayers.
You've certainly been through some stressful times!
