All is well

Double by-pass plus valve replacement. He's in recovery. It's a wonder what they can do nowadays.

Not much else to say today. The girls and I attended movie night at school. Got to see Over the Hedge again. That's one of my favourite kids' movies of late. I LOVE Hammie's slow motion scene. It was worth it just to see that scene again.

Coming out of the school tonight, gentle snow was falling. It's hard not to like snow when it comes down so soft and gentle and the children dash outside to try to catch it on their tongues. The seasons of time are just as they should be, covering the ground with white so that it can rejuvenate and recover in time for another Spring.

Perhaps my father-in-law will be out in his garden again, come Spring. I can't imagine him without his garden and his John Deere lawn tractors.

For now, though, Fall has settled in, and just like Hammie with his nuts, it's time for the long rest.

Still praying.

Hope he has a peace-filled recovery!

My dad had major heart surgery (not bypass) about six years ago.

It IS amazing what can be done!

Every doctor has a miracle in his/her hand.

I'm always thankful that God gave them the gift of healing.

John Deere ??? what kind of a garden does this man grow?

Thanks for all your well-wishes, everyone.

Pamela - yes, it's a big garden. They live on an acreage out in the country, and his favourite past-time is mowing his acres of grass. Fortunately, the garden is big enough to provide US with veggies too. :-)

The news is good. Hope he's on his way to a speedy recovery and can enjoy his garden and John Deere next spring...until then, enjoy the snow.

Oh, good news! I'm glad.

My Grandpa has a quadruple by-pass. Scary stuff.

Glad to hear everything is OK.
