Just wanted to check in and let anyone who might be watching know that I am still among the living. My 89 year old dad, who has enjoyed excellent health throughout his life, had a heart attack 2 weeks ago. It was so mild, he really didn’t know that’s what was happening, but his lady friend talked him into going to the emergency room. Three days later (Monday) he had the dye test which showed one artery completely blocked, another 98% and another 75%. Before going in, we had honestly expected there to be some blockage, but expected a stent would probably be all that was needed. We were in total shock with the results. He chose bypass surgery and they had to wait until his blood thickened back up before surgery. Surgery took place a week ago Friday. Turned out to be four bypasses! Then pneumonia reared it’s ugly head. He’s on a slow road to recovery, but recovery is sure to be. It’s not his time yet.
I’m spending a lot of time at the hospital and will continue to do so. When he comes home, I’ll be spending a lot of time at his non-internet house. Blogging, the booth and social media are the things that will suffer the most. I’ll try to continue to put things in the blog shop and on Etsy. Although, I do have a couple of blog posts I’m itching to do!
