This is one of the many reasons why I love Jon so much. This morning I got this photo on my iphone from him. It’s the morning sun coming in his hospital room window. His wonderfully creative mind never stops. Already he has a long list of how to keep his dignity and humanity while being poked and prodded and constantly told what he can and can’t do. I don’t remember them all, but keeping perspective, getting other people stories and finding the beauty no matter what, are three of them. You just wrote a blog post I told him as he ran off the list over the phone.
Jon will have bypass surgery early next week. His arteries are weak by his heart is strong. And the surgery, though serious is pretty low risk. I’ll be staying in a hotel near the hospital during the surgery and for his recovery, about a week in all. And even if I don’t answer all your email and messages, we do appreciate all your loving and supportive messages.
