My Stepfather Is Doing Well, And We Send Thanks


Many of you who will read this know that my stepfather had emergency heart surgery about a week and a half ago. I came down to Santa Barbara to help my mother when he was released from the hospital.

He does a little better every day. It was an extremely serious situation, and is by no means now routine, but the trajectory, if I can use that word, is good. To illustrate, he is sitting in his usual chair, paying bills, as I write.

My mother’s sister arrives today to take over. I will go home tomorrow, and am planning a return to -Privilege posting very soon. I wanted to be sure to let you all know, however, that my family and I think it is lovely, wonderful, that you have left so many well wishes. Thank you very much.

    I hate paying bills…I would have milked the heart surgery a bit longer!

    Cheers to your padre.

    Good to hear things are getting better, slow and steady, very wise. Nice to know that your aunt is coming in as well…your Mom is surrounded by family, what a great feeling that must be for her.

    A return to the routine is good and, I think, healing.
