My Father…

My dad has been rushed back to surgery tonight with serious complications from his surgery this afternoon. Please send good thoughts and prayers on his behalf. Thank you for doing this.

Update on Thursday night 8:00 pm pst: He is now back in recovery again, he made it through the second surgery. The doctor is hopeful…

Update on Friday morning, 7:30 am pst: He continues to improve this morning, for which we are most thankful. The second surgery is what saved his life- for which we are eternally grateful.

Longtime blog readers know that I don’t often share personal information as the focus of my blog is creativity and artistic expression using a variety of mediums. Thus said, I appreciate the emails and comments from everyone expressing concern over my father’s life-and-death struggle last night.

As adults, we steel ourselves and know that one day we will eventually lose our parents, however, nothing prepares you emotionally for when that day arrives- or seems like it may be happening. Hugs to anyone reading this who has lost their parent or other loved one, and understands the myriad of emotions that played out last night.

Thank you, once again, for your kind words of caring and support. Hugs, Carla

  4. My father had open heart surgery 2 times in one night back in 1980. What was scary at the time turned out to be what allowed him to live another 26 years. I hope what is scary now works out to be a blessing in the future.
    Hugs & prayers

  5. Nancy, even though it was scary, yes, the second surgery saved his life. I was able to talk briefly to him tonight.
