D is home, resting as much as he can.
He had a 90% blockage in two separate areas of an artery in his heart. They placed two stents and have started him on several new medications. Cholesterol has become even more of an enemy in our house (too bad you can't fight genetics!).
We've been dealing with all sorts of emotions: fear, anger, sadness.
His grandfather died very young of a heart attack, so more than anything, we should be thankful that medical care for this condition has changed and that discovering it early is a gift.
We'll be away for a while, heading out for some much needed time away. D has been ordered to rest and I know the only way to achieve that is to get away. We'll be camping in our favorite place, resting, and enjoying some family time.
Taking a little time to play with words, to play with food, and just to play!
