Thanks to all who sent personal emails of support on my father-in-law. His pacemaker was inserted today, and he is feeling remarkably better already. He is due to go home tomorrow if all goes well during the night. My Ape husband is going to take the girls up to see him tomorrow for the day; I, unfortuately, have a got a nasty cold and/or sinus infection, and will most likely stay home to go to the doctor instead.
Thank you, god, for your mercy and goodness!
