I’ve been absent for a while and, for that, I apologize. My dad had open heart surgery on April 29th. Before that he was in the hospital because we weren’t sure what was going on.

I had the honor of bringing him home from the hospital on May 6th and it’s a day that I’ll never forget.

These past few weeks have been life altering and nothing could have prepared me for it. Seeing a parent, who was always the strong one, so vulnerable, sedated, and hooked up to a breathing tube was literally the hardest thing I’ve had to experience. I have never witnessed my father so vulnerable. He’s had serious surgeries before, but I was so young that I guess I didn’t fully understand the severity of the situation.

Now he’s on the mend and I’m just so incredibly grateful.

I want to thank everyone who prayed for my family. It means a lot to me that people took the time to say a few words of kindness for my Dad. For the past few months my Dad wasn’t himself. And we realize now that it’s because his heart wasn’t working at full capacity. I am just so incredibly grateful that he’ll be back to his old, energetic self in the next couple months.
