Grandpa is doing great at 18 hours past surgery. You wouldn't believe he is 80 years old. He has been getting up out of bed-alone-against all the rules, and he has required NO pain medication at all since the surgery.
He is my hero!!
Grace and Mark had a chance to visit the hospital this afternoon. They spent a good deal of time before their visit making beautiful cards for Grandpa.Mark printed a picture of Our Blessed Mother for the cover of his card, and Gracie adorned her card with all of her new heart stickers. We also brought our picture of St. Michael for Grandpa's room. Grandpa knows the St. Michael is his personal Guardian Angel-and St. Michael has always done a wonderful job taking care of Grandpa.
