update on my prince


First of all, my heart is so moved by your thoughts and prayers.  It's one thing to hear of this when it happens to others, but now that it is happening to my prince and I...the outpouring of concern and love is really moving beyond words.  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.
Gary is recovering from his attack and is scheduled for triple by-pass surgery on Tuesday.
This has been an immense blessing, in so many ways.  A true gift of the heart.
Thank god that this was a minor attack and that we were here...together....and that he is in such a fine hospital...and that his surgeon is so excellent....
and another amazing blessing is that this event has healed 10 years of anger and hurt between he and his sister.  This will do more for his heart than any surgeon could hope for.
I drive along the windward coast on my way to the hospital each day, surrounded by incredible beauty, and I can only count my blessings.
I'm tired...emotionally spent....but deeply grateful.
And yesterday a rainbow appeared outside of his hospital window. 
Another blessing.

Tuesday will indeed be a day of prayer for many. Your Prince with his surgeons and my Bobbie with hers. The many wonderful and faithful people here in bogland, all over the world, will be praying with us for our loved ones and the surgeons steady hands. I wish your Prince a speedy recovery. The rainbow is a gift, a true blessing in nature and very beautiful. Take care........

the rainbow you captured is gorgeous ... and I must say that I am so moved by your positive & thankful attitude ... I don't know if I could focus on all the good stuff if I were worried about my own prince - you set a most excellent example. thank you.

as for Prince G ... am going to continue keeping him (and you) close to my heart. Wishing a smooth surgery & a super speedy 100% kind of recovery, too.

Much love, ~M~

Marilyn, that is such good news about Gary and his sister. That is such a huge blessing. Something similar happened to my father and uncle and it's just miraculous.

Hugs and prayers for you and Gary.

Blessing indeed Marilyn...
It's a blessing to be sure that this happened with you.

Having your loving heart (that I've experience in person) will heal him quickly.

You take care of yourself and keep seeing the beauty of life!

Hi Marilyn, You and Gary are in my prayers. Blessings come in odd ways sometime, it has been similar with my moms brain hemmorrage, it too has brought about a family healing. I know all will be fine for you guys. The fairytale always has a happy ending, especially where there is a Prince involved!
Hugs, Gail
