medically necessary) and Maggie
People have been asking questions about my dad aka the Big Guy and I thought since it is 2 weeks since he survived an abdominal aorta aneurysm, it was a good time for an update. There has been a number of ups and downs in the past 2 weeks (and we know this will continue). He has had pneumonia (which he may have had before this), and his heart has done some crazy dancing and needed to be shocked back to a regular rhythm. There have been a few other things, but he is continuing to take baby steps forward. His doctor says there is an 80% chance he will be barbecuing next summer.
At best he has a very long road to recovery with weeks/months more of hospital care. It is a time we are blessed to have our imperfect Canadian health care system. My father's care is free and will continue as long as he needs it. We don't have to worry about what is and isn't covered by an insurance plan.
Thank you again for all your POTP, my family can feel all your love and support. If you could send just a little more, we would greatly appreciate it.
