Yesterday was a day Amanda and I took to head to the beach. We went with Matthew and Sarah Harris to play at Virginia Beach. You will notice I put up a couple of pictures in the Virginia Living from our day away. Amanda is in pain today from her burns. I did get some minor burning but nothing that is causing any pain.
I added a couple of photos to the Sharp Album. Raymond and Celia Draper went to Plain City and visited Grandpa and Caroline. Raymond is the son of Ruth Sharp who is the daughter of Milo Ray Sharp. Milo Ray Sharp is the brother of Grandpa’s mother, Ethel Sharp. That makes Grandpa and Raymond 1st cousins 1 time removed. That makes Raymond and Caroline 2nd cousins. For an interesting photo, they are behind the tombstone of Milo Riley Sharp and his wife Mary Ann Stoker (Lillie M) and his mother Mary Ann Bailey. So this shows Grandpa’s grandparents and his great grandmother.
Dad continues to do well. He spent an entire day in surgery the day after the initial surgery. They thought he was draining too much blood. It proved to be nothing. On the good side, they found a bile duct they needed to secure more securely. Apparently they would have had to go in to correct it later so it was a good thing they caught it this time. They took his feeding tube out the day after the second day of surgery. When I spoke to him this morning they had removed all his IV’s and the only thing he still had on him was an oxygen tube. Apparently he will be in for a few more days before he can go to the little apartment nearby. He has to visit the hospital daily for the first week, then every other day for another week, then every three days the next week, and then weekly for a few months or something like that. He will be in Utah for a few more weeks before they will make it back to Idaho. I have loaded a picture of Dad the day after the surgery in the Virginia Living Album as well.
