My brother is doing well, he is getting treatments that will (we hope) send new veins around his heart. They put like blood pressure cuffs on his legs and they pump up and send blood to his heart......he does these for an hour a day, 5 days a week for 7 weeks.....tiring but worth we hope.

My father we were thinking wouldn't make it through the night got better each day for 2 weeks so they sent him to the nursing home. He was so glad to get out of there, he was walking and things were looking up......the the nursing home woke him the next morning for breakfast and when they took the tray into him he had passed away.....it was a shock because he was doing well, but he was 88 years old. and he told me that he was very happy and proud of his family......he had 6 kids, 17 grandkids 40 great grands and 7 great great grands....

His funeral was yesterday which happened to be my #1 son's birthday.. So after 2 weeks in the hospital with him and a week with my step mom I am bushed....and am going to get some sleep in my own bed.....
