He came through surgery without significant issues; however, third day after his heart stopped suddenly. He was resuitated and has been on a ventilator and under sedation since.
We wait and hope.
For, by our calculations, he should have two or three lives left.

At least, I'm sure.
And by spring he'll be out and about, picking wildflowers for his fair bride.

Don't give up hope, Bernita. My MIL went thru a similar thing last winter. After several days she finally came out of it and they slowly took her off all the machines. She's doing great now. I hope and pray your husband's recovery is at least as good and swift.

Gabriele C. said...

My best wishes to your husband and you.

Bernita,

I've not been getting around much the past couple of weeks either, but for different reasons.

Needless-to-say I was shocked to see something scarier than a ghost story on your blog.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your husband.

SzélsőFa said...

Oh, Bernita, that is so sad. I do hope for a strong recovery.

Josephine Damian said...

Jesus. His heart stopped?

As my sainted Irish mother said when the bad times kept piling on: When it rains, it pours.

When I went through serious illness in my own family, every morning I'd pray to God for the strength to just get through this one day, and at the end of the day, I'd say, thank you God for giving me that strength - one day at time was how I got through it.

LadyBronco said...
