Happy Father's Day

This month has been really tough, my dad was suppose to get an aorta surgery done on June 6th, but when he went in for his pre-op they found 3 blocked arteries so his aorta surgery has been delayed.  First, they did a cath looking to see what they could do and found he needed a double bypass and within days they gave him one...that happened on June 3rd and as i write this it is June 6th.  My dad is still recovering in the hospital...and they've moved him out of ICU two nights ago..so that's good news, but his stomach is not happy and so he isn't eating.   I am hoping by the time this is posted he feels a whole lot better.  Bad news is that they will have to cut him open again next month to fix his aorta.  He is 82 and has always been strong...i hope he can endure this one more time.  He is a wonderful dad!

Bonnie, I really like this card. The DPs are lovely, and the little image is so cute without really looking juvenile. This is a great card for any male.

I imagine some of the meds they have him on are bothering his stomach :( Coming out of the ICU is fabulous news, though - I hope he continues to heal quickly!
