I have been having connection problems here. Dad is doing better. But we found out today that he had a hesrt attack during surgery. A part of his heart colapsed. The doctor said she is not sure if it will come back on its own. My dad told her it is nothing a clam rake wont fix. So he still has hus sense of humor lol. We might get to go home beging of the week?

Glad he didnt have a humorectomy, sorry to hear of the other issues. Continuing to pray for improved health.

Tell him we advised blowing into the end of his thumb for a couple hours. Seemed to work on all the cartoons in my youth when something of theirs collapsed or got flattened.

Nice looking GT resto job.

Good luck to you and your father on his surgery.

 

My M-I-L had a cancerous spot on her lung removed (Cleveland Clinic) on Tuesday and is coming home at noon today. The advances in the medical world are just wonderful when you go to the "Top of the line" hospitals.

Chris, thanks for the updates, Has the doctor said what the next step is if it doesn't come back on it's own?

She (Doc) did say they could try to go back in and do something but dad told her he wouldn't go through this again. That is when he made the clam rake comment to her.

When he had to go to the bathroom and the nurses didn't come when he called,you would have thought at that point that he did have a humorectomy lol. And it's funny i told him to blow on his thumb also:D

I somehow managed to miss all your updates lately Chris. The tractor is a real beauty!! Glad to hear your dad is coming along after surgery and I hope they can sort out the remaining issues and get him home soon. He'll be mowing with the tractor before you know it.

Ok we are home! I just got dad all set up and settled in for the night. It is going to be a long road to recovery for him.He basically can't do much of anything for 2 months, not even drive. So his Gf and myself will be taking care of everything.

 

I am beyond beat atm lol. But I just wanted to update, and Thank you all again!
