So my step-dad, JC, underwent some pretty serious surgery. The procedure itself wasn’t really a big deal, it wasn’t difficult, but it was the second time they’d done this, and if it didn’t work, the only other option was amputation. He’d had a clot in the artificial artery they’d already put in there, so they had to replace the whole thing all over again since circulation wasn’t going through his foot. But he’s out of surgery and feeling good, getting stubborn as usual, and refusing to sit still. Yesterday he walked us to the elevator with his IV fluid stand in one hand and limping on his recently revived leg. the night before that, he was paying bills online with my laptop. This guys a real man, he’s in the hospital and all he’s thinking about is his family first.
