THANKFUL Thursday!

My brother did very VERY well yesterday with his triple bypass and when I talked to his wife, Angie, at 10:30 last night he was doing even better.  By 5:30 he was off the respirator and breathing on his on. Still in considerable pain, which I know is to be expected, he is at least able to verbalize his needs.  Having this type of surgery at 43, he should be a new man, better even, in no time. I was able to see him twice yesterday.

I have a very busy day today.  We came home to our air conditioner being out.  So I have to get whatever real work I am going to do, done before it gets hot today.  The repair man will be here sometime today but I have not idea what time.

Also, I may be out of pocket for a couple of days.  My “little” brother who is 6 years younger than me is having bypass surgery in the morning.  Yeah, I can’t believe it.   Here is a picture of us “a few years back”.

We have really been a lot closer since Mom and Dad are both gone now.  I told him this morning when Husband goes back to work (27th) I would come up and help out some.  I have experience with this sort of thing.  He said “Well, you had a whole year and a half off.  That should have been enough of a vacation.”  It has been a year and a half since Mom passed and I was her primary care giver.  So as much as I can,  I will plan on going up early in the day (its only about 1 1/2 drive) and he and I can visit, go thru old pictures like we have planned on doing for a long time and I can take him out and about if he wants and I can still be home way before dark.  His wife works and I know she won’t be able to just take off indefinitely.  And I know from taking care of my dad after all of his heart surgeries, he will need some help during the day for a little while.
