Update on Suzie's Mom, all is good!

Where are we today ?
New Hamburg Ontario
        We both had a good nights sleep even with a very warm night about 24c (76f) overnight, but a nice breeze made it quite comfortable.

        At 9:30am I dropped Suzie off at her Dad's in New Hamburg where her Sister picked them up and the three of them headed off to St. Mary's Hospital in Kitchener. To visit with my mother-in- law for a visit and the long wait for her surgery to begin at 11:am. 
New Hamburg fairgrounds empty now after
 the Relief sale on the weekend
        While everyone was hanging out at the hospital waiting, Omer and I were waiting at home, and waiting, and waiting.... we did have stuff to do, computing and cleaning as the weather was cooler, rainy and very windy outside.
waiting for Suzie to come home
       Well the operation went fine, she had a triple bypass (not a double as originally planned). They started at 12:30 p.m. (90 minutes behind schedule) and were done at 4:30 p.m. Suzie , her sister Rose and Dad (Levi) were all there and after they talked to the DOC, were back at the farm before 7 o'clock for supper. She will be in ICU until tomorrow sometime the recovery for a few days.

        Back here, we fired up the BBQ a threw on a bunch on burgers, Sandy made some creamed potatoes and heated up some pork a beans and we all had a feast, everybody was starving after a  stress full day. 

burgers, creamed potatoes and beans 
now Omer, he is happy all is good 
        Now the operation is done and we just need to hang out a bit more until the recovery process kicks in and all is good, then we can be on the road again. Whenever the time is right.

        Thanks for all you prayers and positive thoughts very much appreciated.

  1. I'm so glad that everything went well. Recovery takes time but sounds like she'll be better than new soon.

  2. Our prayers will continue as now the process of recovering has begun.

    It's about time.

  3. Very glad to hear all went well! It takes a bit to recover from one of those! Hope it goes well for her!

  4. Happy to hear the operation went well, wishing Suzie's Mom a speedy recovery.

  5. Great news about the operation on Suzie's Mom. It's always a worry as there's no such thing as routine or minor surgery when a person's heart is involved. The recovery will take a bit of time but in a few months Suzie's Mom will be feeling years younger.

  6. So glad it went well now we can pray for a quick and uncomplicated recovery. Triple bypass!!!

    1. That's what were hoping, but a few issues have come up!


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
