HAPPY FRIDAY! And its a Kid-less weekend! Woo ho. Yes, I probably shouldn't be so happy that Son is spending the weekend with his father but I am. It doesn't matter that on Sunday, Son will come home so tired he won't remember how to apply his skills and will argue with me over EVERY LITTLE THING. Or that Monday and/or possibly Tuesday morning will be HORRID getting ready for school. I am still happy to have a kid-less weekend. Its MY time to recharge and MY chance to have a little bit of freedom that I don't get usually. I'm still trying to line up some trouble to get into this weekend so if you have any suggestions, please share!
DAD UPDATE: To get caught up check this out and come back.......... Ok. Now that everyone's on the same page, Dad had the stress test done and got some good news and some bad news. When he called me, he asked which I wanted first. I said "since you are not tied to a hospital bed, it can't be THAT bad of news to hit me with it!" At least he laughed.
Dad and Son when Son was about 7 months old.
Anyway, the Dr doesn't think he is in CHF which is good cause that is a permanent condition controlled by meds and clean living. That's the good news. Bad news: Dr thinks Dad's problem is caused my a leaking mitral valve in his heart. CRAP. But it is fixable. But may require open heart surgery. If it can't be repaired, it can be replaced. So, Dad goes next week for a cardiac cath to see what's going on inside and for the Drs to decide what to do with him.
Thank you for all your prayers, good thoughts and support. Please keep them coming!
