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.

  14. I've been so busy this last week I've barely had time to throw together a post on my blog, much less comment on others. However, I have been reading and I am SO glad that your step-father is doing well. I hope he continues to have a smooth and speedy recovery.

  15. Thank you for taking the time to share your good news.

    All the very best to you and your family.
