Hub Recuperating in ICU ByPass Surgery Successful

Phew! What a last couple of weeks.  After fighting to rid himself of the C-Diff bacterial infection, Rick had  Triple By Pass Open Heart surgery on Monday, the 11th.  He is still in the ICU but getting stronger each day.  Poor guy has now been in one hospital or another for nineteen days.  That is a long time for anyone.  He is so itching to get home.

Our daughter, Jessika, and her youngest daughter Natalie flew in from San Carlos, California last Wednesday.

 Natalie got to see snow for the FIRST TIME. She was totally delighted:

Her Mommy made her her first snowman:

It's such a good thing that Jess remembered to bring along winter togs. She borrowed a snowjacket and snowpants from Natalie's best bud, Soren, and also borrowed his little sister Rosie's snowboots and mittens so Nattie was all set and really ready to PLAY.

It has been amazing having Jess and Nattie here with me. 

Sending special thanks to each and every one of you who have sent well wishes and spent time praying for us.  We so needed it...and we are so grateful..

Linda and Rick


  1. I wish him a speedy recovery. It's wonderful that your daughter and granddaughter are keeping you company. Good luck with the de-cluttering. I think hoarding is a problem with older guys (I speak from personal experience). :)

  2. So cute and soooooo COLD, brrrrrr!! Hope things continue to look good and you get to bring your hubby home soon!!

  3. Oh my what a time you've had. Your hubby will have to be patient whilst he heals up. Enjoy his down time:)
    Aww, how darling watching your grandbaby play in her first ever snow. She's so darn cute.
    I need to declutter so I won't be a hoarder either... lol.
    Well wishes your way :)


  4. I know you are relieved that the surgery is over. I'm so glad he is doing good!
    Your granddaughter is adorable! Wish we had snow, Valerie

  5. So glad they were able to make the trip! How fun for your granddaughter to see and play in snow for the first time!

    I am thankful the surgery is over and he is recovering. {{{hugs}}} to you all!
