The long-awaited, "good news" UPDATE on Scott.

. .. . .. . . .. . .. . . .. . .. . .. .. .. . .. . . .. .. .. . .. .. .

Ahhh... so the UPDATE you've been waiting so patiently for.  Thank you for your kind patience and prayers on our behalf.

It's now almost 5pm... and my husband is resting comfortably here at home in our bed.  YAY!!!!

We got home about 2:30pm this afternoon. 

When I got into the hospital this morning - it was such a HUGE RELIEF for me to see my husband ... so much better.  At this point he had already seen his attending Dr..  He saw Cardiology.  They both liked what they saw on all accounts (although he does have to follow-up with the Cardio docs for a Stress Test - soon!) and pretty much got the okay to go home.

He was eating well.  Voiding well.  Getting antsy to go home.  The smiles were there and the pain was obviously under control.

HUGE, HUGE difference from last night.

We were so blessed to have dear, dear friends (from our church) come, from nearly an hour away, to our home, to watch all three of our children, the whole day... allowing me to be at my husband's side.  They ALL did fabulous...and I said that the care that my/our kids received was "HARD to beat".  If you read between the lines, you can pretty much tell who it was.  Thank you, Kristy!  As you brought along your three of your own children to help!  To entertain?  To serve?  To bless.  You're amazing!  Crazy-amazing.

Scott had gone in for a relatively simple outpatient surgery, on Friday AM... for a Hemroidectomy.... and it turned into an unexpected overnight stay in ICCU.  Due to his (past surgeries) history, and the fact that his heart rate dropped so drastically not just once, but several times (all pain related, they're assuming) all while in post-op.

Totally NOT what we were expecting.  But God is good and for some reason this was meant to be. 


I know this may be a "brief" update but hopefully all can now heave a sigh of relief and know that we're okay and that all is well.

Again.  We thank you for your thoughts and prayers.  Keep em coming... they're is still more recovery ahead.
