He had it

Hi everybody, keith had his op late yesterday afternoon, the op went ok, BUT it was his breathing again so instead of being in theatre for 45mins it ended up being 2 1/2 hrs. The doctors told me and my daughter that he had serious trouble breathing and they were just about to ventilate him as he started to stabilize. Hes still very pooly but hey hes still will me Thank God. So I think this xmas will be a quiet one, for a man of 72 he has the will power of a young one, even though he can be a stubbon old git lol, but I dont suppose I would have him any other way. Thankyou Thankyou all on here for all your kind messages of support and I wish each and everyone of you from the bottom of my heart a very Merry Christmas and please take care love Julia xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
