kinda freaked out.

my granddaddy is in the hospital having double bypass heart surgery right now. they scoped his heart, and saw two arteries that were 99% blocked. so, they put him into surgery, saying that if he didn't then the blockages would kill him.

I know that bypasses are pretty routine now, but it's super scary 'cause he's 79 and not in awesome health anyway. That, and he is the most wonderful man in the whole world.

so, if you're the praying type, or the good thought thinking type, please say a little prayer for my granddaddy. and while you're at it, if you would, one for my granny too.

thanks, y'all.

update: he just got out of surgery. they did a triple bypass instead of a double bypass, and the doctors are really positive, saying that it went much better than they'd anticipated. we're not in the clear yet, but this is definitely a step in the right direction.

I am saying a prayer for him and your grandmother, too. :)

Here's to hoping he has a fast and complete recovery.

How are YOU doing now that the surgery is over?

I prayed for both of them too.

And from what I hear things came off fantastically, at least as fantastically as surgeries CAN come off.

I can't wait until you come down!
