My sister in the Lord,

My prayers for your dad and your family. I am so sorry you have to endure this trial, but your faith serves you well and is an inspiration to me, and I am sure to your family, as well.

Blessings to your father, and best wishes for his full recovery, Br. T.


Glad to hear it Monk.

Best wishes for a full recovery.


My Dad had his aortic valve replaced yesterday.

They replaced the valve with a 'cow valve'. Who knew?
His surgery went very well, and I am really happy at his recovery so far. He was able to get off the breathing assist tube, and now, at 81, he 'just' has to recover from the surgery itself. That alone will be a long haul, but now at least, his body is getting good blood flow.

Thanks for the prayers. We had a lot of friends and family members around praying for him, Thanks be to God. :)


I'll say a prayer of thanks for Doctors and skill and science and knowledge...and also the hope and courage that enables us to reach for the help the lord has already given us!

As well as thanks for the promise that we will have what we need to face whatever comes!

And you have my best wishes as well.


I will pray for him. May God watch over him, over you and over the family
