This is a picture of my Dad I took a few years ago on the top of a parking garage at Riley Children’s Hospital. Those were some very dark days for us, but Dad must have driven the 6 hour round-trip dozens and dozens of times over those 8 months. Never a fuss…just a quiet and comforting presence in the room. I truly admire and appreciate his consistent disposition and calm demeanor. I feel like this picture captures this for me.
Unfortunately, I received some very challenging news today that my Dad had a heart attack this morning and is joining Beckett’s open-heart surgery club tomorrow morning at 7:00am. The Doc said he should be very grateful he didn’t die from it. He will be having at least a triple, but possibly a quadruple, bypass surgery tomorrow. Please pray for a restful evening, a successful surgery, and a quick recovery. Thank you everyone in advance for the love and support. I always appreciate it more than I could ever adequately express.
