"A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book." ~Irish Proverb
Yesterday was the two week mark since my dad's surgery. So, my mom took him to see his surgeon, and he had his staples removed. He called me after his appointment, and I could hear the relief in his voice. He was so glad to have all of those staples out of his body.
Later yesterday afternoon, he called me, and I could hear in his voice that he was really feeling well. He had just swept out the floor of the garage. He was proud, because that is something he has not been able to do for a long time.
He still has several health related issues that he has to take care of, and my mom has already scheduled all of those appointments. He has to see a pulmonologist about his mild emphysema and his sleep apnea. Then he also has to follow up with his regular heart doctor about the abdominal aortic aneurysm that was discovered during his heart catheterization.
My mom has rescheduled her knee replacement surgery for November 3. We think that will work out much better than the previous earlier date, because my dad will be in better physical shape, and therefore he will be able to help her so much more.
As for myself, I have an appointment Monday, October 13, to see my neurosurgeon regarding my back pain and nerve damage. I am in a lot of pain right now, so I am ready to see him, needless to say.
Thank you all for your prayers and sweet thoughts for my family and me; we appreciate all of you very much.

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance....."
