My Dad

My posting may be a bit sporadic for awhile - - my Dad is having some procedures done, and between work, running him to Springfield for his procedures, doctor appointments here in town, and having him home with me for some recuperating time, well - - getting on the computer and having time to blog has not been possible.

Dad had a heart cath done last Friday, and then stayed the weekend with us, because they did not want him doing any driving or much else for 48 hours afterward. He went home Sunday afternoon.

Tuesday we went to the doctor here in town, and discussed what will be done next.

This morning, he found out that he will have a stent placed in the main left heart artery to clear a blockage that is at 90%. This will be done tomorrow afternoon. They will keep him overnight, and will then come to our house for a few days.

There are a couple more procedures he will have to go through, but they will be spacing them out every 2-3 months or so.

SO - - 2008 is off to a rolling start! (*sigh*)

It sucks already.

I'm hanging in there - - wish me luck.

And if you are one who prays, please say one for may Dad - - appreciate it.
