Back home...again!

A quick pop-in to post the latest on Nelson's recovery from heart bypass surgery. We came home this past Saturday. After only 4 or 5 hours, his heart rate accelerated and I took him to our local emergency room. His heart rate registered at 160 beats per minute. They ended up taking him back to Oxford by ambulance. He stayed until today and is now doing very well. His leg with the graft incisions is swollen but other than that, he feels good.

It's been a wild couple of weeks and on top of Nelson's health crisis, my youngest son joined the Air Force. He's been talking about it for awhile but I really figured he'd talk himself out of it. He didn't and actually signed and took the pledge yesterday (Monday). I am so proud of him and for him; I have always believed that a  military career is a wonderful choice for a young man or woman. So now I have a Marine and an Airman in my list of achievements :-) I guess I'm a 'double military Mom' now haha

I'll be back blogging regularly soon. Hopefully I'll have some art to show too. It feels like I haven't touched my craft room in ages.

Thank you for all the prayers and good wishes. Nelson and I are so incredibly blessed to have family and friends who care enough to remember us in their prayers. We've been showered with love and offers of help from all around us. It's a humbling experience to know we've had an impact on so many lives. And in such a positive way.

God Bless You and have a wonderful week!!
