Good morning.:)
  I just wanted to let my friends and family know that Jim's Dad had a massive heart attack Thursday morning. He had to have a quadruple bypass.Jim and I went to Florida to be there.They had already done the surgery by the time we got there. Good news! The heart surgeon asked Dad if he could pray with him before the surgery and of course Dad let him.:) God is AWESOME! The surgeon was able to find an artery past the completely closed one too that he has had for four years. Dad is recovering so great that the nurses are even surprised! Jim's Dad will be 82 this Dec. 4th. The surgeon told him this was his only option so naturally..he chose to do it. :) Two days after surgery..Dad is eating solid foods..sitting up and taking walks! Praise the Lord for his goodness and mercy! We continue to pray for Dad's recovery. There are a lot of things that could still happen..but with the grace of God..none of them will.:)

Thanks for stopping in and your prayers would be greatly appreciated.:)

Jim and I left Florida and started home Saturday evening. Jim had asked the nurses if they thought it would be okay for us to leave and they said "He's doing GREAT!" :)
