I like to joke with my kids that grandpa is younger than Alex. Truth is Alex is older than Grandpa’s heart.
Last year my dad went through a quadruple bypass and had a pacemaker put in. As scary as it was, we got extremely lucky. It could have been much worse.
This time last year he was a few days into recovery. This year he was digging up about 50 plants and replanting them in his backyard. A feat he wouldn’t have been able to do prior to surgery.
We are extremely grateful for the extra time we have been given. We will celebrate with pride Grandpa’s two yearly birthdays. Happy First Birthday Grandpa!
