In the Living Years

Life has been a roller coaster since Saturday evening.  My Father had surgery last night and it went beautifully.

The surgery was to clean out his left carotid artery from 90% blockage after he had a stroke on the left side of his brain.

We saw him last night and he was doing better than well.

I thank God, the angels, and Our Lady for guiding us through this trying time.

I must say a special thank you to St. Therese, Dad's patron Saint.

I know she sprinkled her rose petals over my Father during this difficult time.

As this morning I wake up thankful, this song has come to my mind. . .

(I awoke Saturday morning to a miracle in my rose garden, that is the day Dad went into the hospital.  I will post this miracle to you on my next post.)

I'm happy to hear that things went well. I know that has to be a relief. And I hope your Dad has a super speedy recovery!

Sending many comforting hugs with relief that your dad is doing so well after surgery. My dad had this done at 80 and got 10 more wonderful years before passing away last August at 90 sadly but a wonderful life well lived and hoping the very same for your dad too!
