      My Mom called earlier, so did my brother. And I just spoke with my Dad on the
      phone.

      The surgery that they did this morning was to look at my Dad’s heart. The
      surgeon’s said that my Dad’s heart is very healthy, good and strong. :o)

      Mom just called me again.

      There is always a but though. Dad has to have triple heart bypass surgery.
      They are trying to get him in with a specialist that will do the surgery in the
      morning. I will find out later.

      One of the arteries going into his heart is so clogged up.. it is the size of a
      pin hole and can carry no blood– the surgeon said it could burst any minute.
      Another artery is nearly as bad where the blood cannot be pushed through it
      either.

      The doctors did say that his heart is so strong that they will not have to put
      him on a heart-lung machine for the surgery though. That really pleased
      everyone. My Dad’s family all lives into their 100’s..

      and the surgeon said he
      could tell…. by the strong heart my Dad has.

      I stayed up until nearly 5am praying.

      I thank all of you for praying for my Dad, Art, and my family. It means so much
      to us all.

      I also want to thank those of you that have sent me calling cards. You have
      made it possible for me to call home and check on my Dad .. and my Mom.

      It is
      so hard to not be home for this.

      My Dad’s birthday is tommr. He will be 67. What a way to spend your
      birthday.. having open heart surgery.

      Please keep my Dad in your prayers and if you would, my Mother, Barbara. Keep
      her strong.. this is a lot for her also.

      She has been so sick as of late.

      My brother, Garry, who passes out at the site of blood.. and is scared of
      hospitals spent the day up there today with them both. And is taking tommr off
      for the next surgery.

      I know it is taking a lot for him to just get in the
      doors of the hospital. My brother and my Dad are best friends. Real best
      friends.

      They vacation together, they do everything together. So this whole
      thing with my Dad is tearing my brother apart.

      Well, thank you all again. Thank you for remember my family in prayers. It
      truly means so very much.

      And thank you again for the phone cards. I cannot
      even express how thankful I am.

      Blessings,
      Krista
