Update On My Dad!

My Dad is sitting up and wants his hair to be combed less than 24 hours after having a triple by-pass performed on his heart! He is even refusing pain medication as he says he only is a little sore! Seeing my Dad looking this good, this quickly! WOOHOO!!! I feel like this...


Thank You Lord!!

I am rejoicing with you and your family that your dad’s surgery was a success. That is great that he is up already. I know it is so difficult to see our loved ones in any kind of pain. Continuing to pray for you all and for a speedy recovery.

I know seeing his picture must do your heart good.

Big Hugs, Lyndy

I'm glad your dad is recovering. It looks and sounds like he will be back playing the violin in no time.

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Jungle Mom, I don't blame you one bit, I feel kind of the same way!!! I am so happy for your family. I know a big load has been lifted from your heart. I think you will probably sleep really good tonight. Your Dad looks so good. I pray his recovery will be fast as possible and as pain free as possible and that soon he will be back doing all the things that give purpose to his life, Especially enjoying his family. I hope your mom is doing well. connie from TExas

Good news that Jungle Mom, 24 hours and he's already giving the nurses a hard time. Don't let him check himself out ok.

So glad your Dad is doing well. I've been slack on keeping up the past couple of days.

LOVE on him EXTRA good---you'll miss him more than you realize when he's gone.

PTL he came through surgery fine!

I rejoice with you and Sis. Pam about the progress of your daddy. What a blessing and how wonderful that God has seen fit to touch your daddy. I never cease to stand amazed at my Lord!!

I do love your tigger! I remember how we all felt after my dad's surgery. Isn't God good? It's hard not to be anxious, but we know the Word says to be anxious for nothing, but in everything give thanks and your post says just that, Thank You Lord!!!! We can lay it all down knowing He hears us and answers when we call. He is our peace, our comfort, and our healer.
Praying that our Father will continue to restore your dad daily. We will continue to give Him all the glory for great things he has done :)

Great news!! Pam and I laugh at his comments to the nurses.....guess he is tired of being in there and told how and when to do things...However, I can not blame him for the "assisted bath thing!!"...I never like help there either,(I just looked out the window and prayed rather than crying from humiliation!!)
Your Father is a strong man ---he loves and trust in our Lord, no matter what he is called to do or endure!! May he have a great testimony with those about him!!
