OMG I was floored by how many Emails and comments I received from everyone out in blogland sending prayers and good wishes for my FIL and my family. THANK YOU! That was awesome!
Surgery was 2 1/2 hours late - but it finally took place and went extremely well. We finally got to see him last night around 8:15 and he looked wonderful. The obvious complaints of pain and so forth but he was doing really well. I have to laugh, the first words out of his mouth were "Now everyone gather around, and listen to me! There is a lesson to be learned here about what we eat and that little monster they call 'saturated fat'." :) So I think our family is finally going to be one cohesive unit when it comes to diet. We are all finally on the same page. (Namely Chuck is! He has been the biggest battle.) YAY!
And the Ronald Reagan wing of the UCLA Medical Center is one incredible place. I've never been in a facility like that - new, top notch, HUGE and already outgrown and only been open less than 2 years. But what a place!
We got about 29 drops of rain early this morning - I guess it's better than nothing - but we need RAIN!
Tons to do around here, but just wanted to thank everyone and let ya'll know the surgery was very successful. Praise be.
Have a great day!
