Thanks to everyone who's been praying for Shawn's dad, Chuck. Thankfully, he made it through his heart surgery yesterday just fine and is recovering in ICU now. He'll be in the hospital for a while longer, but everything is looking good for now.
I've been meaning to share this sweet, sweet card Ellie made for him:
You have to read it upside-down, it says: "It turned in too the best hrte (heart)". And the little "oven mitt" looking thing on the bottom left is the doctor's hand fixing it all up - I suppose if you've never seen a surgery happening, you might think they would wear something similar to an oven mitt. Who knows what all's going on inside the body and/or how hot it might be in there! :) Then, you can see the 2 hearts - the "before" heart with the hole in it, and then the "after" heart, all fixed up and whole again. Is that just the sweetest thing you've ever seen?
(Ellie is pretty much just awesome, and it often shines through in her art. If you've never seen the "miracle" she made for me a little over 2 years ago, check this out.)
