Sisters And I.....
Aunt Sherry told me what happened during uncle Bill's surgery. He's been having some stomach problems,been to many doctors. One dr. decides he will help with a laparoscopic surgery. While they were doing surgery, they found a ligament was growing around the aorta near the stomach. The doctor was doing one last snip on the ligament and mistakenly ,snipped the aorta. Can you even imagine.?
Aunt Sherry and her son Bret were waiting for a 2 hour surgery and it was going on and on. By the grace of God, there was a wonderful vascular surgeon at the hospital at that time. He came to uncle Bill's rescue. Thus saving his life.
The doctors have told Bill his stomach is bruised from all the handling to clean up the blood. He had 26 units, that day. Another blessing, the hospital had his type. Bill says food doesn't taste good, so he only eats small portions. Aunt Sherry keeps trying new ways to slip in the protein he really needs. His appetite will return .
I looked at my aunt and uncle yesterday, saw their love for each other. I am so thankful they can always count on each other. God has blessed them with this time in life. Their lifes have been very uneventful till this past year. We all better tell our loved ones just how much they mean to us...we never know how many days there will be in our own lifes. xoxo
