I’ve been away for a while. No real reason. Just life in general. I keep thinking that I will post more, as Tippy always seems to be doing something you might be interested in, but then time gets away from me and it just doesn’t get done. I am in awe of all of you that manage to blog every day.

Anyway, I do have some news that I wanted to share. I have had an aortic root aneurysm for three years. The doctors were watching it, and it was stable – not growing. My last CT scan showed that it has grown to the point that it will require surgical repair. In preparation for the surgery, I had to have a heart catheterization last Monday. They said my heart was strong and no blockages, so surgery can be scheduled. They have not set the date yet.

I have been following doctor’s orders and resting, no heavy lifting, etc. Tippy is a great help at that.

I like this show mom. Can we skip the commercials though?

For now, I am just waiting and trying to get some things done in preparation for being laid up for a couple of months. I have made arrangements for my dog behaviorist to keep Tippy while I am in the hospital and for at least a week after I get out. I will really miss her, but feel it is the best for both of us.

I will try, once again, to share more. They do say that you only fail when you quit trying. So, I’m not a blogging failure, yet. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Oh, Vicky–the only reason I ‘like’ this is that I am glad to hear from you. I miss my fellow bloggers when they are away too long. You have your food stocked up? You might not feel like eating right away, but I always feel good knowing I have a full pantry/fridge. That is so good that you have someone to watch Tippy. Take care. Good luck with the surgery.

    1. Thank you! I do have some food stocked up. I have cooked and frozen a bunch of stuff and will make sure I have other, more perishable items stocked up once I know when the surgery will be. Fortunately, my mom, dad, and brother are near by, so can bring me stuff if I need it. I also have the best neighbors and friends. If I go without something, it will be because I didn’t ask for help.

  2. Thankfully my health is good, but I cannot say the same for my good lady. Annabell, my wife, has been unwell and I have been looking after her. One of our friends was taken into hospital at the start of the week and I have his dog and doing things for him, since he has no family here. That’s ok since Yogi and Benji get on well together. By the sound of things you have everything under control between doctors and taking care of Tippy. I hope your TV is better than ours, but then, Annabell is the TV person, I am not. You and Tippy look quite comfortable there together, so lots of rest and good TV.. Hope everything goes well and you are back with Timmy after a speedy recovery.

  3. Sorry to hear that surgery is eminent, but if the threat can be fixed, it is what needs to be done. Sending you hugs and lots of good wishes for a speedy recovery back to full and outstanding health. I’m sure Tippy will be a great moral support. ๐Ÿ™‚
