We got one of those calls last week that makes your heart sink and your face goes numb. Chris' dad was at the hospital in Fort Worth having emergency bypass surgery for 90% blockage in his arteries.

Today, not even a week later, he is recovering and making remarkable progress! We are grateful for God's mercy in allowing his condition to be made known before he had a heart attack ... which was an inevitable consequence if this surgery was not performed when it was.

Chris and his two brothers were able to be with their dad in the past few days as he was recovering. What a bittersweet time for the four of them to be together. While we all know that life is fragile it does always seem to take something like this to be reminded.

When Lynn (PaPa) was here this summer, Hannah made this video for him to take home since he doesn't really have internet access (gasp!) We are all so glad you are okay PaPa and getting stronger every day! We love you!

So glad he's doing so good! Thankful that Chris and his brothers could be there with him.

Glad things are going well, and he was able to be there.
