You facebookers likely already have this news (and Mom left a message, I think, on someone’s voice mail)- Dad had a heart attack sometime last Fri… he did it in typical B-family fashion- made sure to show Mom what to feed the calves, which of the stock got hay and the general animal care (not much of that left, thankfully), then went in and cleaned up before heading off to the doctor’s with Mom. Dr sent them over to the ER right away and from there he was air lifted to Ft Wayne. They removed a clot and found another artery that was partially blocked (hope to resolve that with meds). He was moved out of CICU yesterday and is Some HAPPY to be in a regular room now. I’ve talked to him via SKYPE and he sounds good. And he’s ready to go home! (He is… not sure what the dr will say about that!) Ken and Melissa came up to be with Mom and have rotated with her as far as taking care of chores (and took turns with her sitting with Dad in CICU). Paul may go up now…haven’t just heard what everyone’s sched is beyond Mon am. Gina and I, needless to say, are feeling far away just now and are mighty thankful for 2 brothers and a sis-in-law close enough to be right there. We are all VERY THANKFUL that Aunt Marilou’s b-day was a week ago and not this past weekend. It gives me chills to think about the “what if’s”- What if Mom had been in FL for the weekend 1 week later?
Here he is with Gina’s 4 this past summer. They called and all talked to Dawdy… except for Madi- she got ‘schemmich’ at the last min and didn’t want to! (Going through my pix, I have very few on my comp of Dad… what’s up with that?!)
