we have to head out to Pittsburgh. Last week we had the appointment with the surgeon and surgery is scheduled for Friday. Tomorrow he is going to have a Cath done to make sure the arteries are clean, if not I guess they will do it all at once. I am scared out of my mind. He is holding up really well I must say. I know he is scared but he is doing work for weeks to come all in 3 days, so that keeps his mind off things too. And he has been able to sleep, which is wonderful. I got a room at a Hotel, so I don't have to go back and forth and my friend is coming to stay with the kids. I don't know what I would do without her, she is such a treasure! The kids are old enough to be under Gabrielle's care for a little while, but certainly not all day and over night.
The success rate for the surgery is 98 % according to the surgeon, so I hope everything will be all right and he will get back to normal. I just wish he didn't have to go through all that and the pain...but, a couple of weeks and he will be all better I hope. He told him he'd be recuperating for 4-6 weeks, has to be on Coumadin for 3 and go through cardiac rehab. I am just taking it one day at a time...
Scrapping is my therapy, it really helps me relax and deal with things. My mind totally goes somewhere else. good thing both the hotel and the hospital have WiFi. Here are a few things I did in the last week, I was caught up with project 365:
Since I match the 2 facing pages I like to do them together anyway..
These are all in my DD gallery where you can find the credits for all the goodies I used!
these are for PixelCanvas. The last 3 are actually old ones. I did these for vinnie's book, but they weren't picked, so I can post them now. I still like them though. Again, the credits are all in my PC gallery.
Okay guys, keep your fingers crossed, keep us in your prayers. I will keep you updated as much as I can when I am going nuts in the room. :)
