Seems to me that every now & then, we need to have GOOD news...& I have some to share.
As I've said before, we dearly love our in-law children, consider ourselves lucky to have such good partners for our children. (for the record-we automatically distrusted the guys our dd's dated in high school-but got over that when they got older).
Our oldest dd's husband was found to be missing an important valve in his heart-when he was about 40years old & having a routine medical exam. He doesn't fit the image of a heart patient-he's tall, well-built (not fat, but definitely not skinny or frail) & very lively-he will try anything. Fortunately they live in Ottawa-& the Ottawa Heart Institute is world-famous, so he was deemed a candidate for corrective surgery. Our poor dd was upset-they have 3 beautiful children-& after going through Adam's Open Heart Surgery with us-very frightened. Dates were picked-plans were made (she is very organized-so I'm thinking she had everything written down & ready). With Adam so frail-I could not be there-but I sent cookies & muffins & meals. His parents drove through a snow storm to be there for their son (& to deliver my goodies)-he was prepped-ready-surgery delayed. Twice this happened-but finally, last Friday, it was to be done-for sure! We've been following it all via internet & phone-discharge date was to be tomorrow if he managed to follow their recovery protocol.
I got a message today-he is home-a mere 3 1/2 days post op! As she said "Superman is Home". Now it will be difficult to keep him still, especially as he recovers more & more!
And THAT is my good news-my news to share with you. But I would like to hear good news from others. We got some of the snow forecast-but not freezing rain. And until tomorrow-it IS still Winter, so I shouldn't whine & snivel too much.
