Here’s the deal~ my dad was sent home from the hospital last night, but it seems it’s because they’re not sure what to do with him quite yet and not because they have any answers. I’m hoping miraculous things are taking place and that’s what’s REALLY going on, but for now, we’re still really concerned about him.
His EKG was normal, but it’s always been normal~ that’s kinda scary, right?
One doctor thinks one thing and the other doctor thinks another. He does still have blockage, but they didn’t do the test to see how much it’s blocked now. They sent him home with nitro, which he hasn’t been able to take since surgery since his blood pressure has been so low. They also told him to come right back if he has increased chest pain and shortness of breath, which has already been happening..
Just have to surrender and trust. Hurry up and wait. Let go and let God.
Are there any other good ones? Um…Jesus take the wheel? Oh wait, that’s a country song. That can’t apply, can it?
Settle down. Country fans don’t get your belt buckle in a bind.
In other depressing news, my daughter took a huge spill rollerblading yesterday. She is all banged up~ hands, stomach and oh the knees…the poor, poor knees. We doctored her up and kissed her tears and felt all the stomach cringes that come when our children are suffering. Nate told her he fell in love with the girl who had the scar on her knee~Aww~ (Yes, that’s me~ riding on handlebars with a friend, went flying and sliding down a gravel road on my stomach. Ouch. And NOT a pretty scar.) but we are hopeful that she won’t have scars. I have scar treatment ready JUST in case.
I’m NOT working at the Minneapolis Mart for the show coming up~ turns out all 26 sales reps are coming, so I’m not needed. I would have enjoyed it, I’m sure, but am glad to have more summer days with my kids! My last day was yesterday! Woohoo! I’ll go back and work there in December and January.
We almost piled in the car and headed to Arkansas, but will wait a couple weeks and go when we were originally planning. It’s hard to be here with all that’s going on there~ I’m torn in a big way.
The temperature was 114 in Arkansas yesterday. OH MY WORD! That’s so stinkin’ hot! We had record-breaking heat here a couple weeks ago, but now have settled back to our slightly warmer-than-normal 85º range. It’s been gorgeous. I feel guilty for even saying it~ I’m sorry for all of you across the country, sweltering in the heat~ truly, I am.
Well, I just have a rambling bug this morning. I’m going to publish this thing before I come up with another slew of conversation starters. Happy Thursday. And thank you for all your wonderful wishes yesterday~ I appreciate your prayers more than I can even express. It means so much to my parents too, to see all the people who are praying for us. Thank you!! XO
