MorFar

Sound the trumpets and bang the drums! MorFar came through the surgery with flying colors! It has been a long day-- especially for Braydon, very very especially for MorMor, and most most most especially for MorFar-- but all is good. The surgery went perfectly smooth, and the first few hours of recovery are behind him. The latest report from Braydon is that my Dad is cracking jokes with the nursing staff and keeping everyone in the best of spirits... as is, always, his way.

Thank God for the medical care that we have available to us. As privileged people we cannot rest in being ever grateful for the layers upon layers of opportunity, access, and power that we have. May we have the strength and determination to use our resources to create better inroads for all people. Every person has the right to have their personal potential unconstrained. May we always be mindful that with great privilege comes great responsibility.

Thank you to all who have sent up prayers and good thoughts in the universe tonight. It is much appreciated and it is truly felt.
