It never rains but it pours..................................................................................

Just as my Mum has started to get mobile again after her fall with hopefully a chance of returning home in the next few days Mandy's Dad has had a heart attack. 
He is 72 and has never been in hospital in his life... a fit man who still climbs trees with his grand children.
 This has come as a real shock to everyone who knows him.
He will be having a triple bypass operation in the next few days... scary but he is in good spirits.

Having been so fit all his life, he should come out of the surgery with flying colours, but it is certainly stressful for the family.

Drew, triple bypasses are safer than appendosectomies. The doctors take more care since they are more complex. He'll be up and walking the following day. Just keep him cheerful before the op. and remind him that the op. is in the hands of God and the doctors but as soon as they start closing, it is your responsibility to heal and get well. No-one else can do that for you.
I'll keep him in my healing thoughts.

Wish him all the best from me Andrew.
Heart attacks are a scary moment when they happen. I'm sure he'll be OK.

Hope all works out OK - the title also seems relevant to much of the SW of England as well! Half of my old county seems to be under water!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

You two are getting a huge dose all at once of being the generation that takes care of your parents. We are praying not to get to that stage for a few more years (and I'm sure our kids are praying even harder).

Best of wishes to Mandy's dad and to both of you. And I'm glad t hear that your mother is recovering well.
