Little Bird Saved.

That's the good news but on to the bad news first. Last Thursday himself had a heart attack. He's been in intensive care since then. Today they are going to do an angiogram to determine how much damage has been done. Hopefully it won't require an operation....fingers crossed!

My daughter arrived yesterday to spend a few days with me. I'm so grateful that she could do this. Yesterday afternoon we heard a bird hit the living room window. She ran out to see if it was there on the ground or if it had flown off. It was on the ground, on it's side, knocked out. It was a little chick a dee. She picked it up and kept it in her warm hand for some time until it finally got it's sense back and then flew off. It was one of those feel good moments when you've saved a small life.





There are loads of little birds around these days as it's been cold and snowy for the most part. I was a bit worried for some time as I hadn't seen any around. I've been wishing for spring but unfortunately we've hardly gotten into winter.

Oh my word! I keep my fingers crossed for a good prognosis from the doctors. I'm so glad you've got support from your daughter.

OC, I'm so glad your daughter is there with you. I'm praying for strength for you and really good news about Himself from the doctors.

It is wonderful that you and your daughter saved the little Chickadee...maybe it's a good omen for Himself!

Really hope the damage is not that bad and he can recover---a stent placement is usually NOT a big operation so hopefully thats all he will need..GReat job on the bird save!! A blessing for himself--and you.

Oh my ... a shocker! So glad your daughter is with you to help you from being too much at sixes and sevens with the wondering and waiting. I do hope he doesn't need an operation.

Glad the little bird pulled through.

Thinking about you and hoping Himself is doing much better and doesn't need surgery. Oh, the story of the little chickadee is so tender, your daughter has such a special touch.
Take good care and wishing you all the best...
