keep praying

Well, the did another echocardiogram and it shows damage to the heart valve, to what extent needs to be seen in the future. 2 weeks ago the echo was still okay, so the damage was done within the last two weeks, what a bummer. All we needed was for the blood cultures to be done sooner, but nobody thought about it. Had he not almost passed out the other day and had to be taken to the ER, they would still not have been ordered and he would still continue to be miserable and probably be getting a bone marrow biopsy to test for Lymphoma. Oh dear Lord, it just never ends. Well, no use crying over spilled milk, we just have to live with the facts and go from there. At least 4 weeks of IV antibiotics and then another echo to see what the damage is. If the valve needs to be fixed we'll have it done. At least he seems to feel better, no fever, no night sweats last night.... We went to see him twice today and he was so happy. He can't wait to come home!
Here is a page I did this morning. It's for the Itunes challenge at DD. I really like it, but not many people shared my enthusiasm :) That's okay, Rachel and I still like it. It's funny how people like some things that I find just okay and then dislike something that I really love. Different tastes I guess.

Oh goodness...what a roller coaster ride with your hubby's health these days! It sounds like he's feeling a touch better at least. I hope there is no permanent damage!

Your style in your layouts is uniquely you! While it's not my style, I can and do admire the creativity it takes to make it. If you and Rachel like it, that's all that truly matters.

I'll put your husband in my prayers... and you too! My DH has been in and out of the hospital since January 4th. It takes its toll on the rest of the family so I understand where you're coming from.
A hug to you!

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
