Happy almost Valentine's Day!

UPDATE 2/12/11 - My dad was released from the hospital yesterday and went into a rehab facility. He went to one where his own doctor can visit him - his doctor doesn't have privileges at the hospital my dad was in, so he wasn't able to visit him while he was there - so that's good news. Pretty much nothing will happen over the next couple of days since it's the weekend, none of the therapists will be working, etc., so I probably won't be updating regarding his progress over the weekend.

Thanks again for all of your kind words and care, I so appreciate all of you!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day!


UPDATE - um, already! ;) 9:30 AM PST -
As soon as I hit "publish", the phone rang and my dad's girlfriend just told me that my dad had a really good day yesterday. YABBA DABBA DOO! Pending some blood test results, he may be moved to the rehab facility as early as this afternoon. YEAH!

Group hug!


And somehow it's Friday ... the days are blending into each over here. I hope you're all well and happy!

I haven't heard anything yet this morning re my dad - they tend to do procedures, have doctor visits, etc. in the morning, so I haven't called in yet today.

My dad's girlfriend did say that my father was a smidge better yesterday and they were going to try to get him out of the bed at long last and sit him in a chair. I know from previous hospitalizations, how difficult it is to find someone and get them to help him into the chair and walk him - don't know what's up with that??? Are they massively under-staffed?

Have I told you that I adore Pinterest? I found this charming Heart Banner for Valentine's Day on it this morning.

Happy Almost Valentine's Day!


  1. Yay! group hug for sure. This year we are bannerless but I did have a last minute inspiration of going dry erase red marker crazy and put hearts, and sweet messages on the girl's mirrors this morning....(they are with their mom this weekend). Hope you and your hubby can get out and celebrate the day of love.
