About 9:15 last night the surgeon came in and told us things went well. They were only able to do three by-passes as his heart was in bad shape and they did the valve replacement. We all got to go and see him and then go home to get some much needed rest for evveryone. My sweet baby sister brought us some yummy food and I am so glad she speaks my love language - purple hull peas!!
Sweet man spent the night in the ICU waiting room as he didn't want anyone to not be there in case anything happened. He and his brother went in to see him at 5 am and he is still on the ventilator but could nod his head and squeeze their hands as they spoke to him. Thank you Lord. Long road to go but hurdle one down!
This is the day that the Lord has made, Let us rejoice and be glad in it!!!
My mother-in-love came in the hospital room this morning saying that. This is also the day father-in-love has his by-pass and valve replacement. We already claim victory and are anxious to jump this hurdle. Today I will gather with the rest of my in-love crew and I am sure we will spend the day laughing, being told we are too loud, answering many phone calls, drinking a lot of coffee, but mostly praying for our precious "pawpaw".
If you don't mind - your prayers would not be wasted on us one minute. Thank you in advance for them.
We serve a Great God and we will rejoice and be glad even on the hard days.
