And dad carries on....

Posted by Terry McNichols

Today's surgery is over and deemed "successful." Apparently another stent was inserted inside original stent and the leak has slowed to a trickle. Hopefully this will stop at some point, as well, but isn't considered "life threatening" at this point. My friend, Donna, of the beautiful words, (here, here, and here) said it so sweetly in an email to me: "More lessons on how parents own a piece of our hearts whether we've sold it to them or not."

Based on the lessons we learned at the event of my dad's last surgery, one sibling has been present the entire time and is now able to extend his "sick leave" to continue caring for mom and dad. Yes, my dad does own a piece of my heart.
