This is what I looked like the day after I had a terrible fall in the flower garden.  Dewey tried to catch me, but couldn't  I was on the sidewalk when I lost my balance and fell, and wouldn't you know I couldn't fall on the newly worked soil, I had to hit the bottom of the rod iron plant hanger which slit my head wide open.  I was knocked out for a minute, then Dewey helped me into the house where I cleaned myself up, and saw that a butterfly Band-Aid wasn't going to the ER we went, and as you can see I had to have 4 stitches. The worst of it was the needles to numb the area!
Today the headache is gone and I'm feeling much better even though I still look gross, I'm heading out to the grocery store so we will have something to eat this week..eheheh

Here's some of my latest paintings!  Blessings to all who happen by!!!

After Dewey's surgery!

There are many great hospitals all over the word, but I have to admit the people at UVA are exceptionally kind and caring!  Everyone we came into contact with there treated us as if we'd been friends for a very long time!  Dewey's date for surgery was changed because the first too tests to be done were scheduled to be done on Memorial Day!  NOT!!! heheh So we left home around 7am on Tuesday the 28th got to Charlottesville by 10:30 in time to check in at the Red Roof Inn not far from the hospital.  It wasn't the cheapest one, but it was close enough so if I needed to drive I could find it.  Yea, still having problems finding my way around when I don't remember where we were!  I felt so sorry for my  hubby having to have the one of those tests to rule out an blood clots cuz it's not an easy one to go thru...but he was a trooper, and didn't complain at all!
Weds we left the motel at 6am for his 7am surgery which didn't start till 10:30...couldn't believe he had to wait that long.  It took only 5 hrs once they started and recover took about 2 hrs.  He was in good spirits when he got to his room, and his surgeon, Mike  Mangrum said even tho they found more problems to fix it went really well.  Later I was told people come from all over the world to have him treat them. How awesome is that!!! 
We were released around 11:30 the following day and got home about 3 hrs later...he's been resting since we got home, but taking little walks throughout the day.  He thinks he's going into the shop tomorrow, but I really don't think he should.  Doctor said to take things easy for it would be about a month before he's up to par.....make a man listen to that is like making a dog stop chasing cats!

Blessings to all!

to make a long story short Dewey's Atrial Fib went into full Flutter and the shock treatments didn't put his heart back in rhythm so he was put on Multaq and blood thinners hoping it would work.  It didn't so we had a consult with Dr. Mangnam @ UVA last Monday then go back for 2 tests the day before his actual surgery to put his heart back in rhythm.  We will need all the strength we can munster to drive down on the 27th (leaving at 3am) then come back home the same day...then drive down again on the 28th (leaving again at 3am)  for the surgery.  We've been told this is a 7 hr surgery so he will have to stay over one night...It's a good thing I'll be getting a shot in my hip on the 9th, and pray that it works right away so the riding won't be so hurtful!  We are asking for pray know full well that only God can give us a positive outcome....Please keep Dewey close will ya?

I wanted to share a couple photos I've taken in the last couple days...Blessings, and have a wonderful weekend!!!
