My Dad had his surgery on Thursday - Five bypasses!! He is still in the Cardiac Recovery Unit but seems to be doing well - a little disoriented but am sure that will pass. Am very glad I am here!
Today is the Portland Rose Festival but as the weather is typical Portland we are not going to the parade - too bad because it is so much fun - next year! There might be a little yarn shopping today?
Back home tomorrow. Thank you all for your wonderful messages - they really do make a difference!

I'm so glad your Dad is doing well and I wish him the best of luck. Take care of yourself too.

Yay! Glad your dad came through it okay. Time to treat yourself with some fiber therapy!

Hi Julie...
Good to hear your Dad is doing well and continues to do well. My prayers will continue for his full recovery.

I'm waiting to hear about my Dad also. I was told today that he's had tests done last week (MRI included) and will find out Monday the results. Tuesday another Doctor (eye specialist) tells him whether they can do anything about it. The words 'stroke' or 'tumor' were mentioned, so of course I'm worried. I know you would understand the feeling.

Hope you got some knitting done.

Glad to hear that your dad came through it all okay. Sounds like you came through okay, too. Fiber therapy would be just what the yarn doctor would order.
