Best present to me

Happy Birthday to me!!! My Mom always asks every year "do you feel a year older?" I definately feel 1 year older this year. The best present is Gordon is out of the hospital. I love him and was scared at the thought of losing him when I realized how serious this is. Gordy had been sick for a week and starting coughing up blood on Thursday. We thought he was congested and coughing hard made him have traces of blood. Well, each day it was worse. He went back to the Dr. on Friday and they said he had Bronchitis and a stomach ulcer, hence the blood. Saturday we went to Parker's football game, he was still coughing and sore. He thought he was sore from the heavy coughing. Saturday night at 8:00 he was in a lot of pain, his arm tingled he was sweating and couldn't catch his breath. We rushed him to the E.R. We really freaked the kids out when we rushed him to the hospital Saturday night. After 5 hours in the

E. R. we found out he had pulmonary emboli. He is home now and doing well. I give him a Lovenex shot twice a day in the "love handles" and he will be on Warfarin for at least 6 months. But that is manageable. We were very lucky. Heavenly Father was watching out for us. His family was in town to see Parker's football game and we are very grateful that they were here to help us and keep the kids and us calm.

Thank you all for your prayers and love. We have felt it and are grateful there are people who care about us.

Lovenox is a sweet drug! Your welcome for saving Gordon's life. Make sure he gets his prostate checked soon. Glad he's well.
