Back in VA

Oh my! Where to start?! Well, since my last post dad was rushed to the hospital and spent another week with them. LORD! His aorta surgery went perfect and they dealt with his heart attack by putting in 2 more stents but the problem came with the hospital discharged him too early. His system hadn't had a chance to start back up. After 2 nights being home and feeling just completely icky he started throwing up....green stuff. YUCK! He was seriously ill all over again. After pumping almost a gallon of swamp water from his stomach and releasing a quart and a half of urine from his bladder we was on the mend again. He spent several nights in the hospital resting and getting his system back on track. Thankfully we got to bring him home AGAIN on Wednesday and so far so good.

The last 18 days have been pure hell! No other way to put it.

Thanks again for all your thought and prayers. They definitely helped and are still very much needed.


On a totally different note....a baby making note...today is CD1. So hopefully 12-13 days from now M and I will be going to our first (and last....hey, we can hope) baby making appointment!

It's time for some good luck. We've had our fair share of bad!


Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some serious blog reading to do!!

Hopefully a little more smoothly than before. :)
