The Latest News

Our grandson was here again overnight on Saturday. 
He's always so cheerful when he comes over.....that's because he loves to come over. Since he's the only child here he can do almost anything he wants to do.
Yesterday he pulled out a bin of memorabilia of his that I've saved since he was a baby, he enjoys looking at it.
He worked on his scrapbook some more again this weekend.
Of course he has to wrestle with grandpa before the day is over.

Jalen kept trying to 'flick' Kev's cheek and Kev was pretty darn good at preventing that from happening. Jalen doesn't cry anymore when grandpa gets the best of him....thankfully grandpa knows when to stop. They have fun....boys need that.
Grandpa took a nap afterward.

Friday afternoon Kev and I went to talk to my new surgeon. I liked her.....I really liked  my other surgeon too...but I need to have the surgery at the facility that can handle any possible problem with my heart. She's tentatively scheduled surgery for Jan 28th. First she wants a bilateral mammogram because it's been almost a year since my previous one and a clip put in the sentinel node. She also wants me to see if I can move up my appointment with the cardiologist who prescribed this defibrillator I am wearing. They all have different specialties. My other cardiologist wants me to spend the night of surgery in ICU....fine with me. I must be pretty special to have TWO cardiologists.....although I am not sure I like being so special. I'm not nervous yet, but I am sure it will come.

That's the latest from me!


  1. Have 'faith'. I am never nervous when I am having surgery. But nothing this serious. You are at a good hospital.

  2. Jalen is so blessed to have you and Kev in his corner! Yes, life was simpler when you weren't so "special!" It is good to know that they are covering every aspect of your well-being.
    You will be fine, and the sooner, the better!

  3. Yes, boys do need their fun! You sound great! Hopefully the worry won't come. Hugs and prayers for you.

    Blessings, Vicky

  4. Love the boys having fun. I am just getting back a bit after being sick with pneumonia. I wanted to check in with you and see how you were doing. Looks like your surgery is coming up soon. Sending up prayers for you. You are my last visit tonight. xo Diana
