Miracles still happen!!

This has been quite a week. It has been an emotional roller coaster for sure. My sister called on Monday morning to let me know my dad was very sick and one of us needed to take him to the ER. Since my nephew was sick and she needed to be with him I said I'd go. Well, he was in so much pain she took him and I met them there. We were thinking it was his gallbladder since he'd been having pain all weekend in the same area I did when i had my gallbladder attacks. In the ER they discovered he was having a heart attack at that moment. Rushing him by Rescue Squad to another hospital that specializes in Cardiac Care we followed. They actually placed two stints in the right artery which was blocked completely. He was doing well afterwards and later in the day complications began to arise. We knew something was wrong when his blood pressure continued to fall drastically. After further tests they found that he was bleeding and ended up taking him to emergency surgery. Whew, were we scared! A few hours later the surgeon spoke with us and explained that they didn't know for sure where the bleeding was coming from and they didn't know if he would make it. Many prayers were being prayed for my dad during these long hours of uncertainty. I know the Lord had plans for my father to stay here with us! The bleeding stopped and slowly, very slowly, he has recovered and may come home from the hospital tomorrow. He is gaining his strength back and eagerly looking forward to going home. Please pray for my dad!
I will be staying with him and will not be blogging very much but I am so encouraged as I read some of the other blogs today and have decided not to quit. I will blog when I can.
I have started the BOM and do not have the website where the pattern is located. If Bren could get this to me I would appreciate it greatly. I can work on this while I am caring for him.
