Finally!!!!!

It took 8 1/2 weeks, 6 surgeries, numerous infections, and many specialty Doctors....but Dad finally left the Salt Lake Valley, and headed to the rehab floor in the hospital in Idaho Falls!!! Many, many times we were told that his chances were slim, and his prognosis was poor. I spent day in and day out with Dad through the bad, worst, and eventually positive times. I am soooo very grateful that I could be there for him. Now that he's four hours away I don't have the opportunity to be with him every day, and phone calls have to do. We are sooo blessed to have had him pull through all of this, and for all the prayers and fasting our family is forever grateful. To my sweet friends and family who were there whenever I needed for babysitting, food, and a shoulder to cry on, I am beyond thankful!!! Love you all!!!
Jibbity, my Mom, Lil' Squishy, Dad, and Ashie

Getting ready to head out.Had a hard time saying goodbye...

Doing good and heading home to Idaho, and the hospital there.
******************
Now I hope to be back to blogging!! Can't wait to get reading, commenting, crafting, and posting again. I have missed everyone!!! Soooo many things to blog about and catch up on... I can't wait!!!
***************
Just an example of what else has been going on around my house...Ashie cut most of Lil' Squishy faces mo hawk off with the school scissors of Jibbity's that she managed to get out of the child locked drawer. My two year old keeps me VERY busy!!!!
Hugs to all my blogging friends!!!! It's good to be back!

Your dad is going to love it there. My grandma was on that floor in that exact hospital when she broke her hip and again after a small stroke, (they had to ask her to quit spraying her perfume so much) she's 90.
They treat you so well. Hope your dad gets well soon.
