Murphy's Law says "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong." However, I have adapted to fit our family (aka T-Law) to "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong so get ready for the shit to hit the fan!". That pretty much sums up our luck.

That brings me to the events of yesterday. We were supposed to have heard from the heart doctor Wednesday night on the status of my dad's surgery but by yesterday morning we still hadn't heard from the doctor. This slightly upset my mom so she let the nurses know that as soon as he came into see Daddy that we wanted to be called. Apparently the doctor showed up shortly after I left from visiting last night but the doctor DID NOT call us. We found this out about 9:30 PM when we went up for the last visit of the night. Mom went out to speak with the nurses to have them call the doctor and they REFUSED to call him for us and then they (the nurses) told my mom that she couldn't get that info because she (my mom) was only his sister. My Mom exploded right then and there and straightened her out by telling her that she wasn't his sister but his wife. My mom doesn't need that kind of stress because she also has heart problems.

As if that wasn't stressful enough last night on our way home from the hospital (at 11 PM) my Mom's car died in the middle of a very busy road! AGGHHH!!! Luckily I had my cell phone (lately I have been forgetting it!) on me so I was able to call my hubby and have him "rescue" us. As for the car we don't know what is wrong with it other than it seems to be dead right now. Good thing is we still have my van and Mike's car running so we still have transportation. Needless to say when we got home I fixed myself a nice stiff drink...LOL. Which I was way overdue for one since my last drink I had was almost 2 years ago with Renee when she came to visit me in AR.

To make a long story short we finally got things somewhat straightened out this morning and found out that he will be going in for open heart surgery on Monday. Although he isn't exactly the best candidate for it right now it is at the point where we can not wait too much longer without his heart giving out but as of right now we still don't know what time he will be going in for it.

Enough with the stressful things let's talk about relaxing things. :) Like I said in the last post I haven't had much time to stitch but here is a picture of what I am currently attempting to stitch. It is a freebie from EMS. I decided to stitch it over 1 on 25 count fabric. I have decided that I much prefer stitching over 1 on 25 count instead of 28 or 32 count fabric. :) I put my needle beside it to give you an idea of the size of it so far.

We don't have any real big plans for this Easter weekend. We might go over to in-laws (Mike's dad) for a little while but no definite plans on that yet. It all depends on how things at the hospital go.
I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter!
