Happy Fathers Day

Happy Fathers Day to a great Dad......my husband. He loves his children and grandchildren to the moon and back. He'd do anything for them. He also loves me. He takes good care of all of us. When I am down and out or not feeling well, he is the one I want beside me.
Here is to all the dads out there. You are appreciated.
I am so proud of my sons and son in law. They are all wonderful fathers. It makes my heart swell (a goose saying) to see you with their children.
This is the little guy that had the bad accident and had to have 1 hour and 40 minutes of plastic surgery. Check out his lip. Can you believe how good it looks. Sometimes it is more noticeable but I am amazed at how well they were able to repair his sweet little face.

UPDATES: I haven't seen a post or heard from Viv in the last couple of days. When I do I will post it . Sure hope that things are okay with little Jacob.
I am still alive here. I had the scopes and don't mean to whine but there were problems. But first the good news.......my colon looked good and my esophagus has really improved and also looks good. The stomach was red and irritated and the doctor said he didn't know why. They always do biopsies so we will wait to see about the results. But their were no polyps or cancer that he could see. I have not had this great of a report ever and I have had at least 3 each of these scopes. I am sure being gluten free has healed some of the damage from the Celiac.
Okay not bad but not good news. The trouble with the testing was that my oxygen levels kept dropping. 80's are not good Therefore the doctor couldn't put me under. The nurse had to be two inches from my face telling me to breathe. And I won't go into details but having this testing awake was horrid. The sore throat caused inflammation and congestion and I was choking to say the least. The doctor said it was rough. The lower was also very uncomfortable. He said I was good and held still.......he said never again without an anesthesiologist. So I think that explains what happened during the hand surgery and I woke up to a tube being pulled out of my nose. I have had low levels every time I have ever had a pulse ox. on. My husband is constantly telling me to take deep breaths when this is on. Sometimes they just go ahead and disconnect it saying that it isn't working right. Any one else with this problem or any suggestions.
When I have had these tests before I have been on a happy high for the whole day. Yesterday.....I was worn out and tired. Today a little better. The throat virus could be contributing. It has taken me all day to unload the dishwasher and it still hasn't gotten loaded. But I am thankful that things looked pretty good. I think I anticipated something like this as I was anxious all week.
So I am fine and I so appreciate your concerns.
Hope you all have a great week-end. I miss my own Dad more on Fathers day than any other day. XO

Happy Fathers Day to your husband and sons. I am glad to hear the procedure went well but I can't imagine doing it awake. Have a good weekend and go unload that dishwasher!!

Take care of yourself - you know all that work will still be there when you feel up to it. I'm sorry you had to go through those procedure w/o anesthesia, but I am glad that it was pretty much all gd news!

Oh- Debby- It sounds like you had a horrible time. I am so sorry that you had to go through that- it is bad enough when you are knocked out...but awake? OMG! Wish I could be there to give you a big hug.

I am worried, too, not hearing from Viv. I am keeping them in my prayers.

Happy Father's Day to you wonderful hubby and the rest of the men in your life that are Dads. xo Diana

I am glad to hear that your procedures went well. Hopefully the biopsies will be fine as well. When I was 18, I had a scope while awake. Not fun at all!
Happy Father's Day to the dads in your family!

Jane said...

Oh, my, that must've been awful, Debby! I've had the colonoscopy and due for another one. Drinking all that stuff was bad enough - sure wouldn't want to be awake during the procedure!!!
So happy you had good news, though! Kinda makes up for the bad parts!
Happy Fathers' Day!

My dear friend I will write you a personal e-mail with my thoughts when I get time, having a fairy tea before noon today and need to get moving. Nan

Debby.....you sure have been under the weather, in more ways than one. I'm so sorry to hear of all your troubles and low O2 levels to boot. The results seems positive in many ways and I guess that's a blessing. Sounds like your doctor is smart and will figure out your oxygen problem. How did you do up here in Coloado?
It's wonderful that your hubby is so attentive and loving. Makes you wonder how women get through life WITHOUT a true blue mate. I feel lucky, as well.
Warm (((hugs))) to you and keep me posted. Sorry we missed each other when you were here (I checked my phone messages often) but it sounded like you were kept pretty busy. That's fine. We can try it again when you're here.
Stay well and know I'm thinking about you and sending warm healing thoughts your way!
Love
Jan

Jeffrey and I have been married for twenty years and I have loved him for every minute of those years. But, watching him be such a remarkable father has made me love him more every day. Aren't we blessed?

Raven said...

Debby this post was so sweet. I love that you and your husband have been married "forever" and that you have lots of grandkids to spoil :)

Sorry to hear about the problems you are currently having, I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!

Hi Debby!
Your grandson is ADORABLE and his lip looks perfect! Doctors are amazing aren't they!!
I"m saddened to know that you are going thru so many things. Having that procedure without anethesia is something I can't imagine!
I pray that all turns out well and you are healed SO quickly!
Happy Fathers Day to you and your handsome husband!
Lynn

Oh, Debby. I am so sorry you are going through all this. I don't know how you keep such a good attitude. Bless you. Your little grandson looks wonderful. What a blessing that must be for you. Keep hanging in there, Friend.

Holy cow! I need to stop by more often. I've never heard of that being done without anesthesia. Glad there were no bad things found!
