Update 9:40 p.m……Daddy just sent me an email thanking us for his birthday wishes. He said he doesn’t feel any older today….he felt 80 yesterday and he still feels 80 today! (He’s only 70.)
Today is my dad’s birthday. He is 70. Because of the severity of his heart problems, we never thought he would make it this far. He has had 2 bypass surgeries (the first in Oct 1989 at age 53 and the second in Mar 1998), 5 heart attacks (we’ve lost count, but I think that’s right), and about 14 angioplasties. We are having a party Saturday at my sister’s house. My mom’s bday is Sept 14, and my sister Heather’s is Sept 12. My nephew, Jeremy has one on Sept. 11. This was last December, at their 50th anniversary party. This is his senior picture. He graduated in 1955.
