Today was a very long day.  My family and I arrived early to a local hospital so my dad could have a heart catheterization.  To make a very long story short, I’m thankful for modern medicine.  I’m thankful for people like Dr. Thomas Fogarty, the inventor of the balloon catheter and Dr. Julio Palmaz, for inventing the stent.

Our day ended with a happy family photo (minus my brother).  Get well soon Dad!
