Brief Bob Update

Bob's hernia surgery went just as expected, always a good thing. He was in the hospital for 4 days and home on Sunday. So far not too much whining :D He has some pain but is up and around and doing much better than I anticipated! Yeah Bob. He is after me to get planning our trip to Florida and with this weather I think the sooner the better.

Is it summer yet?

I am sick sick sick of snow! Putting on a coat, gloves, scarf, earmuffs, warm socks, boots, sweaters and whatever else I need to stay warm is just getting to be too much work! ARGH!! Whew, got that out, feel better...

So, the Bobster... sigh. He has had a hernia for a few years now but with all of his other health issues the doctor really didn't want to do surgery on him. Well the past few weeks the hernia has gotten worse and now it needs to come out. He will be having surgery next Thursday. His doctor said they will discharge him Thursday evening and I just laughed and shook my head.

As you may or may not know, Bob is no longer on the liver transplant list. He had a heart bypass a few years ago and 2 of the grafts/bypasses are now blocked again. This precludes him from having a transplant. His quality of life is very good at this point and we just found out his transplant doctor feels that had he had the transplant a few years ago as planned, he would either be very sick now, or dead! Hey, thanks for that!

Does anyone know how to email a photo album from a Mac? I made a very nice album with my pictures from Seattle and I can't figure out how to send it to anyone. I was thinking of posting the pics on Facebook but there are about 100. :D Plus, I am getting creeped out about all the hacking on FB. I am starting to think I don't want anymore pictures of my family out there in cyberspace. Me, I don't care if my picture is out there but I don't think I want to add to the personal information a creep can find on me and mine. Now I am laughing because, umm... blogger here.

I am heading out Chili's tonight with my Chica. If ever a person needed a Presidente Margarita it's me!

I am back!

Back from Seattle. What a trip. I flew my mom out for a week before I got there. My sister met me in Denver and then we flew to Seattle together. mom, my sis, my brother, my sis-in-law and their 2 kids, me and oh, their dog Charlie all in a 2 bedroom bungalow with one small bathroom! Thank god we didn't stay home enough for it to be too much of a problem.
I LOVE Seattle! My brother lives in West Seattle and it is fantastic! Everyone walks, rain or shine..well, rain or drizzle. There wasn't much shine while we were there. I hear the sun comes out in the summer. It was overcast most of the time but it didn't stop anyone from being out and about.
The Sound, the mountains, the city, it all suits me perfectly. To those of you who love me in Dallas, all I have to say not.
I finally figured out how to download pictures from my new camera. Now I just have to figure out how to edit them a bit and then post them. I should have some pictures next week. I can get them here but I can't maneuver them once they are inserted.. I think I need an in-service on my blog!
