Praying for the families and souls of those that died in that horrid accident over the Hudson.
Beeniesmom, huge prayers for your dad. Mine was too young - 67. Sending healing thoughts that your dad will pull through.
Hope: A week ago a senior fellow (older than your dad and mine ) had heart surgery and "it wasn't looking good". I went to see him yesterday and he has improved by leaps and bounds. He wasn't in bed - he was down the hall doing a crossword puzzle! Still tired, but doing way better - up early for his walks and exercises and all.
Prayers your dad does the same!
