Watching my parents greet each other, after my dad had a successful and uneventful surgery today, was a wonderful way to spend a moment!
Months of pain, and anxiety over the complexity of the surgery (a surgical revision of a previous hip replacement), dissolved in relief. My parents have "made the most of every moment" of their 56 years together, and it is heartwarming to know that this surgery will offer an opportunity to resume an active life together.
I will be with my parents throughout the coming week, and unfortunately Internet access is limited in the hospital. Although I hope to keep up with blogging, if I miss a day or two, I am apologizing now!
