This is What 43 Years Looks Like!

Today is Mom and Dad’s 43rd wedding anniversary! Their love of 43 years is evident in the picture that Mom sent me this morning- lots of ups and downs and bumps along the way but always there for each other!

We finally got to see Dad around 9:15 last night when he made it to his room and he was doing very well. He had been singing to the nurses in recovery and making everyone laugh. He did tell me the nurses he was singing to weren’t very pretty but he wanted them to feel good about themselves. Lol

The doctor came in this morning and said that everything looked great. They were changing the dressing around his tubes and said that his bladder tube would come out at lunch time but his chest tube would stay in for a little while longer. 

I will head back to UVA tomorrow to stay  the night with Mom and Dad and will post another update at some point tomorrow. 

Thank you all for checking in with us yesterday and for all of the prayers and love! Keep them coming!!
