Heart Update: Part 2

As some of you may know, my grandpa had his heart surgery on Monday. I am so glad that I get to tell you things went really, really well. They had no complications that I know of, and all the hospital staff say he's very healthy. As of today he was awake in the ICU and talking softly, although he's a bit sore and in pain.

Thank you so much for all the prayers already. I can't tell you how much they mean to me.

*group hug!*


  1. YAYAYAYAYAY! I'm so happy for all of you! I've been praying :)

  2. Hullo Mountie!

    Hurrah! SO very glad to hear that about your grandfather! :) I will definitely be praying that he gets relief from the pain and a smooth, blessed recovery!

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
