News from Fr. Vyverman
Many of you probably noticed that I was not at Mass last weekend. I was very thankful for my brother priests who stepped in and helped out on such short notice. This is the first time that I ever remember missing a weekend because I was sick since I was ordained a priest.
I wasn’t feeling good the week that I left for retreat, but I didn’t put everything together at the time. For many years now, my heart doctor has been watching me for a heart condition. When I got back from retreat, I had an episode. The timing of this caught everyone by surprise. I let my doctor know the next morning and he immediately had me scheduled for a pacemaker. Last weekend I was recovering from this surgery, and I will need to go at a slower pace for the next few weeks until everything heals up. That means I might have to reschedule a few things.
For those who might have heard by now what happened, thank you for your prayers and concern. In many ways, I am feeling much better now, and am looking forward to being able to do most everything again in a few weeks.
