Update on my sweet dad

Glenn and Glenda

Yesterday was a long day. Thank you for all your lovely thoughts, comments and prayers on my dad's behalf.

The surgery is over and went well. I was very impressed that the doctor called my family each hour of the surgery to give an update. I love thoughtful people.

I really value coming from a large family. While I was not there, my siblings and their families represented me well. And there were lots of phone calls and texting between Spokane and Chicago.

By the time I went to bed last night, dad was in ICU, breathing on his own and talking a little. Now we are praying for healing and no complications.

Thank you, blogging friends. Thank you.

  4. Isn't the support of the blogging community so very special and important? I've said it before--I entered that community with a little trepidation and have been so very rewarded. I'm happy for the good news from your father. I've been in that "waiting room" for my own father. Hoping for the best for your dad post-op and peace for you as you wait.

    Thank you for your kind wishes for my family. They are all doing well this morning

    Best,
    Bonnie

  5. Such good news! I love a big family too =) I was not the one who was getting the calls from a distance, though. (I always lived in the same town as my parents) I'm sure you would like to be there. Prayers continue!
