Update on Jimmy, my father in law. Surgery was last Thursday morning, just about this time. 7:15 a.m. It went well - exceptionally well. We spent about 4 anxious, prayerful hours -- waiting to hear from the doctor. And then, we were allowed to see Jimmy. He was still "under" to some degree. But he did open his eyes and look around at us. We let him sleep another 4 hours. Breathing tube came out. We went back in to see him. Still sleepy, still groggy. But when asked how he felt? His answer - MOOO!!! LOL ... this was in response to him getting a cow's heart valve. We knew at this point that he was fine!
He was in the hospital thru the weekend, and on Monday. Thought he was going to be able to go home on Tuesday. But, no. His prostate had swollen to the point that he could not pee. They used a catheter on him, to drain the bladder. And they started him on medication to take down the swelling.
Jimmy went home yesterday! He and Mary Lou were both happy to be going home. It will take several days to recuperate from the hospital stay.
We are praying for continued health, healing, and strength for Jimmy.
Thank you God for seeing him thru all this ... and for walking with us thru it all.
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
