“How do you feel? I want to make sure this is helping your pain.”
“Ma’am, I’d be glad if you could just knock the shadow off it.”
The conversation above took place this week at the VA Hospital in Asheville. Pap suffered another heart attack last Sunday and we’ve been at Oteen-the VA ever since. He was in a bad way on Sunday and 2 other times between then and now. But today he’s had a wonderful pain free day. I wish you all could see him walking around the ICU Unit in his maroon pjs with his Marine shined work boots peeping out of his britches legs. Hopefully we’ll soon be headed home to Brasstown where some changes in Pap’s medicine will improve his current situation. We would certainly appreciate your prayers and good thoughts.
