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.

My father in law had triple by pass surgery last week also! I am glad to hear your brother did so well…he IS young to have such a procedure! My fil is doing pretty well, too, but they are keeping him in to try and get his blood pressure meds adjusted.
