Stubborn runs deep

Mikey Fresh came out with just a pacemaker and no blockages. We were very thankful. He was not. He was not a good patient and was probably the only patient that on the way to get a pacemaker had a CHEW in his mouth and had drank coffee at 4:30 am. He came out of surgery asking for his CHEW and was mad when sister and I made him eat first. What ever they gave him caused him to tell the truth. If you have ever heard me talk of my daddy you know he calls and talks one minute and then will say, "Daddy loves you." Sister and I never really talk to him. He gives little in the conversation department. Today, he was full of drug induced conversation. When we were alone and I thought he was asleep, he said, "Lulu, daddy loves you." Always in third person even when you are right beside him. But stubborn he is. I tried to feed him lunch. He had to lay flat and not sit up, one arm was tied across his chest, but he did not like the way I was feeding him and he insisted on doing it himself. He kept asking for his clothes so he could leave. He insisted on us giving him his CHEW and chapstick. But we had a good laugh when the hospital was full and he was put in Labor and Delivery. So now after a day with dealing with my stubborn daddy, I can see that stubborn may run deep in my family. I mean have you met my daughter? Husband is chocking that I did not say myself but I am too stubborn for that . . .

I love that he was in Labor & Delivery (only at Shelby!) and had a chew & coffee before surgery! Hope he didn't get too mad at you for cutting up his chicken too small! What a bonding experience! Glad to hear he is doing better. We are still praying for him.

You know you are so stubborn. Marlee comes by it naturally and it sounds like you do too. I'm sure that gave you a peace of mind when he was back to his ol' self right after surgery.
We missed you at Awana. Bailey was devastated she did not see you and Joey. She looked across the room and said "Tyler is not even here?!"
