Dad update...

So far, so good!!!

The stress test went really well last Friday and thankfully, my dad's biggest fear will not come to pass. He was very worried that they would come back and tell him that he also needed a pacemaker.  Instead, he got a clean bill of heart health!  I told him he got the extended warranty :)

He got his dates mixed up so today was not the surgery to put the stent in place.  Instead, he had to get a bunch of pre-surgery blood work done.  NEXT MONDAY is the big day.  First thing in the morning and they think it will last about an hour and a half.  He is in great spirits and I really think he was more nervous about the stress test than the actual surgery.  I told him that I posted it on my blog and many, many people were praying for him.  YOUR PRAYERS ARE WORKING!!!!!  Thank you!

On the adoption front, I am praying that I will hear about my court date this week.  My attorney in Ind*a should have received my court petition paperwork last Thursday (their Friday) so I'm praying that she will be able to get into the court and file for my court date.  PLEASE, PLEASE pray that I would hear about my court date soon!!

The weather here is absolutely beautiful!  I love, love, love fall- it's my favorite time of the year!  I hope you all get to be outside and soak up some vitamin D!

I'm enjoying the weather with 4 furry family members :)

I want to start a new saying, "Dog days of autumn."  Might not have the same ring to it but there's nothing like a long walk with a puppy dog on a crisp autumn day!


  1. So glad to hear about your dad.

    I love Fall, as well! It really is wonderful.

  2. So glad things worked out the way they did with your dad so far. Will be praying for your court date for sure!

  3. I like the "extended warranty" idea. :o) I am so excited at the prospect of your court date . . . I will join the others praying!

  4. I was totally thinking about your court date today, and thinking you just have to hear something THIS WEEK. That is what I am praying!!!! And I'm really happy about your dad!!!! Wooohooo.

    Barkley looks SO cute. Give him a super big kiss for me.
