Update on my father-in-law

Posted by on Jan 4, 2009 in personal | Comments Off

Margaret’s father, Frank Hurst, is having quadruple bypass surgery Monday morning. (See my post “Please pray for my father-in-law” for details.) His surgery is scheduled for very early Monday morning, and should take 3 1/2 hours. We will probably not get to see him Monday – only Margaret’s mother will be able to see him then. We should be able to see him briefly on Tuesday.

The surgery will change only if he has any further heart pain. He has not had any pain, and, in fact, has been doing very well.

As you can imagine, he will have a very long recovery process. Margaret (and perhaps Miranda) will be staying with her parents for a few weeks to help out. I’ll be staying for a few more days until he seems to be recovering well.

Thank you for your prayers, and please continue to remember him and our family.
