My grandfather "Bill Bill" has been in poor health since before Thanksgiving. He has been in and out of the hospital and has gone through many surgeries. In February my sister's and I took a trip down to Alabama to celebrate his 80th birthday. This was an important trip for us because the next week he would have open heart surgery. I hate to say this but we thought this would probably be the last time we saw him. (Sorry mom, but it was true) We were just preparing ourselves. He had his surgery and the doctors fixed 3 of the 5 heart valves that they needed to fix. We were hopeful! Recovery from his surgery has been a long road. My mom, memaw and aunts and uncles have been at the hospital every day and night for the past two months. They are tired. He is tired. But everyone has remained hopeful. It has been a long road.
Today he was released from the hospital. He is on his way home. We are very excited!
Thank you for everyone who has been praying for him!
