Thank you and an update on dad.

Hi Everyone,

No food porn today, just a quick thank you for all your kind words, well wishes, and prayers for my sweet father-in-law. I hope you all know how much DH and I appreciate your love. I thought no better day than today, Valentines Day, to say thank you. Dad had his heart surgery and that went well. While healing he has fallen 3 times in the hospital. Once when DH was with him, once when he got up by himself to get his water during the night (why the nurses had his water out of reach is beyond all of us), and once while the nurses had him standing while changing his sheets (another why wasn't he sitting?). The reason he kept falling was because of super low blood pressure, like 80/40 NOT GOOD! The good news is that his blood pressure has improved and he will be able to start the facial reconstruction on Monday, the bad news is during the last 2 falls he broke both ankles and they have to do surgery on one of them and possible the other. My sweet husband is the light of his fathers life and just sitting with him up to 8 hours a day has done a tremendous amount of good for dad. I will keep you posted on how things go on Monday. Once again thank you all, for you concern, thoughts, and love.

Those nurses sound so incompetent! Thank Heaven for you and your husband that can be there for him. I hope all the surgery goes well. You're all in my thoughts, Sheree!

Trust me when I tell you that our medical staff is greatly understaffed and our medical situation is about to get a whole lot worse with the baby boomers coming of age.

Our thoughts are with you and your family at this time of need.
