Dad was just taken back for heart surgery. They are doing some sort of balloon procedure to repair a valve. He has been pretty weak the past couple of weeks. He still comes in to the office every morning. At first the doctors thought he was to weak for surgery but changed their mind and decided to give it a shot. At 88 years old our family has been overly blessed. Dad has had numerous health issues. Colon Cancer, Lung Cancer, 2 Strokes, Diabetes, 6 Heart Attacks, Quad Bypass, Vein surgery in his legs, numerous trips to the emergency room with congested heart failures. The list goes on and on. He is one strong man, and a huge will to live. I thank God everyday for letting our family keep him and my mother here with us this long. We are so fortunate.

John, your dad sounds like a hell of a man. He raised a hell of a son. Hope he fares well through this surgery. Peace and serenity to you and your family.

He is a tough one and must have a cast iron stomach cause he has been eating my cooking lately!! Seriously, he is a precious man and John has alot of his same fine qualities in him as well.

Thanks everyone for the all the prayers, good vibes and thoughts. We just got the call. So far he has pulled through with no problems. The doctors said he should be good for another 12 months, but his valve could close up again within 6 months. If so, they will go back in for another round. They are keeping him at the hospital tonight, He is awake, alert and flirting with the nurses......... Back to his usual self pretty quick I hear........


Thanks again everyone for the fine words. Please continue sending your prayers and also keep sending prayers out to Lefty and Leann......they need em too. It works!!!!
