Here are several ways to celebrate Celtic culture through music.
What are you thankful for?
This was a tough week for me. My oldest daughter had open-heart surgery. This was the BIG FIX. They replaced the conduit and valve going to her pulmonary artery.
It was a success. The surgeon thinks she will not need another surgery for another 15 years. Even then, the technology should be there that they should be able to replace the next valve through a catheter.
I am super thankful for our surgeon. I'm thankful for all the nurses who continue to help her as she heals.
And I am extremely thankful to you and everyone who poured out their support after last week's show. Thank you all for supporting me and your Celtic community!
