A Long Day....With a Happy Ending

My dad's heart procedure was done this afternoon, and he just got out. Everything went well! His heart looked good, his previous stints were still open, with no clotting. He did have a very small heart attack, but it was minor enough (meaning a tiny artery was blocked) that there wasn't even any repair necessary. The attack was due to the stress of surgery and the effects of anesthesia. He is doing well in recovery and will be in the hospital for another night. (We are praying for quick healing for his knee so that he can quickly resume his walking exercise to help control his diabetes.) This was the best news we could have received from the doctor's report of the surgery, and we know God did a gracious thing today for our family. Thank you again for your love and prayers.
