Well, Dad had his operation today, and all went well. This afternoon they have been weaning him off his sedation, so he is slowly coming around. He is very groggy, and not able to communicate yet, which he is obviously finding, umm... frustrating, to say the least. I can only imagine.
Thanks everyone for your prayers, wishes, thoughts and positive vibes. We still have a long way to go, and no doubt my blog postings will be fewer (more like every few days) for the time being whilst I juggle work, hospital visits, running the house and covering every bloody spare bit of space in my house with laundry because THE BLOODY RAIN WON'T GO AWAY!!!! but rest assured, I won't give up my addiction that easy.
Oh, and speaking of addictions, those cigarettes are now in the bin.
