I brought my Dad home today from the hospital. It's been 11 days. He had a double bypass and everything is going well. That plavix stuff really messes with you though-they normally don't do surgery until after you are off it for at least 7 days, but my Dad's artery was a mere thread compared to what it should have been so they did the open heart at 5 days. My Mom has been staying with me for the past week and we have been driving back and forth everyday. I am so glad it's done. I love my Mom, but she just had to go home.
The septic and drain field are done!!!!!! Finished, inspected -the whole works- and on time and UNDER budget-( 1700$ less than we had thought) I can wash whenever and what ever I want- and flushing is no longer a luxury! YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This week I am going to Chicago- shopping, relaxing, museum going. A trip to Ikea probably. I can't wait. Anything to keep my mind off the current financial and political crisis.
oh- and the best news yet- another 8lb weight loss for me!
That's my wrap up. I will have a better post soon- I promise.
