Okay, I have to run up to the high school to help out, we are doing an audit on the CUM's. BUT, many have asked about dad and so I am doing a quickie to let you know where we are. He went in on Monday to have a stent put in around the tumor so his liver could drain the bile. The scope didn't work, tried 2 scopes. They rescheduled for the same procedure yesterday at LDS hosptail in SLC. Didn't work. The surgeon said that he could not get the stent around the tumor in the duct. The tumor is hard, not plyable and he didn't want to disrupt the tumor and was afraid he might end up severing the duct if he kept trying. The duct is completely blocked and they HAVE to get that bile draining! He in in the hospital again this morning (LDS in SLC) and they are going to put in an external drain... They will biopsy it and give us more details... at least that is the PLAN. So, patience and more prayers... I will let you know what happens!
But, cute quick story. Tuesday my mom and dad were at Costco. My dad's recliner had died and they had gotten rid of it. They saw a nice love seat that is a recliner on each side... he said, lets buy that and we can sit by each other and hold hands! So, they did. I called that night and sure enough, there they sat on their new love seat holding hands. I wish I had a picture to post!!!!
As I was talking to Brad about this sweet thing... the love seat story... he said, well, you know how we mortals are... always taking the important things for granted... at times like this it really makes you sit back and think... WHAT ARE THE important things in your life??? I know I take the gospel for granted so often, just running around doing my daily chores etc... I am SO grateful for the knowledge we have been blessed with on our Savior and the atonement!!! WHAT A BLESSING!!!! Oh, how our Father loves us and wants us back! I know my take my sweet hubby for granted... he is the most giving person I have ever met, he has taught me so much! My children... how good and kind they are! I am going to strive to take one day at a time and like Mechelle says... take time to smell the flowers.
What do you take for granted?
Have a great day my sweet friends... I will "talk" to ya later today!
Thank you for your kindness, love and "hugs"
