Freebie Finish

What can I say except that it is about time I had a finish! I put the final stitches in this freebie from EMS this afternoon. :)


Merry Christmas 2006
from EMS
The news on my dad is that he will have to wait another 2-3 weeks for his surgery. As it stands he still has to lose about 25 more pounds of water before he will be safe to go under the knife. The doctor told us if he was to do it right now that there is a 99% chance that he would not make it through the surgery. However, if we could get the doctors to actually agree on something that itself would be a miracle but they did agree that he could come home for the next few weeks while he takes the meds to lose the water weight. This of course comes with stipulations like we have to make sure he eats a low sodium diet and does as little as possible. Just call me Nurse Dawn for the next few weeks. Hopefully he will get released tomorrow or Friday. :) (As I type this I am knocking on every piece of wood I see!)
I want to thank everyone for their wonderful comments on Megan. She is growing so fast! It is hard to believe she was a mere 3 pounds when she was born. You definitely can't tell it now!
Have a great evening! :)
