Thank you for asking, ever so much...

My Dad had a triple bypass today and a heart valve replacement. At the present, he is still on a ventilator and also has a pacemaker. The pacemaker may, or may not be permanent. He had an irregular heartbeat but that could have been due to the heart attack.

He is not expected to fully awaken until tomorrow morning. Prayers are still needed. The first 24 to 48 hours are crucial.

I really do appreciate all of the concern. I am sure that he does as well. There have been prayers sent up all over the world for him, from all of you and from Denmark to Jamaica. He is the most fortunate of folks!

In the mean time, it appears that I now have a garden. I picked eggplant, okra and bell peppers today. I also did some watering since there hasn't been that much rain. The bellpepper plants were somewhat wilted. I wonder what "we" will plant for the fall...

SusieG, I will return your phone call.

I want to thank you all. You are all so very special and near and dear to my heart!
