by-pass

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to pass on the latest. My dad is doing well after surgery. My mom is staying at a hotel close by and does not have access to a computer. The surgery went well, he is a bit restless but over all is doing well. The nurse said the vent should be taken out sometime in the next few hours. His BP and pulse rate are good. Thank you for all your prayers and good wishes. And Dominique I know my mom would be chatting with you right now but can't so I will just pass on thanks for being such a great friend and an amazing support system.

God Bless
Cathy and Jessie1

Hello Cathy and Jessie,

Thank you for posting an update on your dad. So good to know he is doing well and that you, Jessie, are too. I will continue my prayers for all of you and ask the Lord to grant your dad a speedy, easy recovery. Please keep us posted on dad's progress. Did they give you an approximate discharge date if things go as they should? I do know that any more patients lengths of stay are very short in this country even for bypass surgery. I for one will be looking for the ongoing news. My prayers are lifted up for your family and all the wonderful people on this board. Isn't it amazing the support you get from people around the world who you will probably never meet? It's all about heart and the inate good, kind, loving spirit of people. God bless you all.

Lord, immerse us in the ocean of your love
Bath us in your cleansing rivers
Soaks us in your healing waters.
Drench us in your powerful downfall.
Cool us in your bracing baths.
Refresh us in your sparkling streams,
Master us in your mighty seas
Calm us by your quiet Pools.

Dear Maureen and Cathy
Wishing you both and your husband/father all the very best. Unfortunately I was not brought up in a church so I have had to borrow this pray for your father from someone else at work. It was the least I could do after all the help and support I have received from Maureen.

Really wishing you all the very best.

Love Debbie, Edith, Kenneth, Julie

ps weather in Manchester great

I'm very happy about your Dad!

Hi Cathy,
How wonderful that you thought enough of us all to keep us posted! You must be as sweet and thoughtful as your mother! I'm so glad your Dad came through his surgery ok! I know you must be relieved. Say hello to your Mom, and thank you for keeping us posted!
