Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

today was the second day this week i spent in berwick.

monday my dad had surgery and he is doing pretty good today. he had a major blockage in his carotid artery (in his neck) and had to have it cleared out. it is a pretty intense surgery because there is a decent chance of experiencing a stroke during the procedure. we came to find out after the surgery that the doctor was actually quite relieved to find dad moving his hands and feet afterwards because of the type of blockage they found. we were told he was very lucky.

after the surgery he was put into the ICU for 24 hours to watch...during this time he had some issues with his heart rate and blood pressure but he seems to be doing better today. he is home to recover and driving mom he must be good.

so because of the miles and miles back and forth in the car (twice) i was able to stick to my diet pretty good this week...or maybe it was "the long walk" that held me accountable...either way i did pretty good so far. thanks for all your support and really helps.

hope all is good out in cyber-space.
