Two topics of the day. Rick has his open-heart surgery yesterday and pulled through just fine. They replaced the aortic valve and did a bypass on another clogged artery. They say he will be in for about 5-6 more days and than can come home and needs to rest for about 6 weeks or so. I can't imagine Rick being housebound and dependent. We will all go crazy.
The cleaning is because we having been having record breaking rain here. I woke up at 5:30am and thought I spilled something on the floor. Nope, the basement flooded. That is where my bedroom is. Thankfully I have a lot of shelving that I use to put things I value up on. We are talking water that covered my feet in some spots. There are two rooms down here. My room and than a laundry room. So my day consisted of sopping up water. Our town is pretty much shut down. This house was built in the 1800's. Remember, a lot of PA is historical. Many of the roads are very old. You can almost picture soldiers walking down some streets here. Most of the roads are closed as were schools.
All in all, things are well. My bro-in-law is healing. I didn't float away. Oh yeah, ironically the daughter found out about her father. She called me the night before his surgery to tell me her dad was dead to her. It was her birthday and he hadn't called. I couldn't let that go. So I called her and told her exactly why her dad did not call and wish her happy birthday. I didn't want that that comment of him being dead to her the last thing that came out of her mouth. So, knock on wood (banging on my head), we pulled through the sickness and the flood. I am raising my coffee cup in a toast to all that you and yours may be well. Peace!
