I am sleeping just a little better tonight knowing that my dad’s heart surgery went well this morning and there were no complications. My brother was with my mom today and was great about sending regular updates.

My brother sent a picture of him tonight in his hospital bed – connected to every tube and wire imaginable – it didn’t really look like him. He’s definitely got some recovery time ahead of him. But family has assured me his humor and stubbornness is still in tact which is what makes me love him even more. Hoping to see and spend some time with him soon.
