hi everyone--yesterday was a long and busy day. got my morning kettlebells done and took the girls for a quick walk at the park--didn't stay long, the skeeters were awful. got home, cleaned up and then headed up to collect my mom for her appt. with the second surgeon. he was very nice, explained the procedure and told her she is a very good candidate for the laparoscopic procedure to insert a stent in her abdominal aorta. also said she does have some time to get things arranged for my dad's care on the day of the surgery and afterward. so we are looking at sometime in july. unfortunately that is my very busiest time of year, but if all goes according to plan, mom will come and stay with us for about a week after the surgery, and my brother will be in charge of my dad. lots to think about before then--but at least now we have a timeframe.
then it was home for a quick nap and a couple chores, a quick dinner and off to nancy's house for PIE night and a plant exchange. had a great time and left there about 10 pm.
today its cloudy and rainy--a nice soft day to water everything. so its inside work for me--hopefully I can finish up a bunch of little odd jobs. think I am going to try and get a run in since it isn't raining very hard. have a great day!

    I'm jealous of your rain. I hope you get that run and lots done inside too!! Pie night sounds interesting. Does everyone bring one? What plants did you pick up?

    Best wishes for your mom's surgery. I hope all goes smoothly. You are very good at planning and anticipating troubles so I know you'll be set.

    Have a great Friday the 13th and a great weekend too!!

    Glad you have plans in place for your parents. I'm sorry your Mom has to have surgery. That's never fun. Oh! Pie night!! emoticon What kind of pie did you make?? Hope you had a good run. Cooler weather today here. A nice day to walk outside, but I'm going out for my woman's club annual dinner tonight!

    Your story sounds so familiar... my parents are both gone now, but we had several years of caring for them. emoticon
