Lovely find and update on my dad...

Don't you just love this display mirror?

it even has beveled edges
price...$5.00 !

I know in my last post I told you that my dad is
doing so much better and he is, but he
still needs your prayers.
We thought he would be coming
home today, but now it has been changed
until next week sometime.

His heart doctor wants to implant an ICD

{implantable cardioverter-defibrillator }

Dad was not too keen on the idea,
but after discussing it with my mom
and us kids he has decided to go ahead with it.
He may not be home now until Tuesday
or Wednesday.

He is in very good spirits and we have a
wonderful time when we visit, but it is still
a scary thing whenI realize that it is
my dad's heart
that we are talking about.

Praying that the Lord will guide the doctor's
hands and that all will go well.

Blessings~

I am keeping your dad in my prayers. It's amazing what medical things are available these days. If the doctor thinks he needs the gizmo, he needs it!

Sandi... Sure do hope dad gets along fine...They have made so much progress with the heart I feel he will be up and chipper again soon.... It would still disturb me if I would have to take action like that though. It is just natural to have fear....

Dear Sandi... sending prayers and good thoughts to you and your daddy and family... I lost my daddy at age 91 two years ago, and I miss him every day... I lost my sweet mama much too young, 28 years ago this very day... I know how very hard it is on you when your parents are ill and hurting... please know I am thinking of you... xoxo Julie Marie

Lovely mirror with sweet little bird candleholders. A friend's mom had an ICD for many years as her heart had a habit of stopping. Wishing your day well and sending prayers and good wishes your way. Tammy
