Roy Orbison — you gotta love him — “You Got It”; just came on the intercom/radio and now it’s stuck in my head! This link starts with Roy and moves on to other great 60’s songs:

Family update — The surgeon called in the Gastroenterologist who had done an endoscopy exam of my Daughter-in-law’s father, “M” several months ago. So they did the scope and discovered that M’s stomach was twisted, and not only that, but the food that he had taken in on the one day he was out of the hospital (only liquids like soups, etc.) was sitting there in his stomach, undigested. They emptied his stomach and the next day (yesterday) they did a CT scan with contrast. Today, they decided to do a Gastrojejunostomy  Feel free to click on the link if you want to know more about this surgery. I’m praying that it will do the trick and M will be on the road to a full recovery. This has been an ordeal for M and all of his family. Thanks to everyone for their prayers and positive thoughts on his behalf. It’s so hard to watch someone you love suffer.

It’s been a good day — we went to the DMV this morning and Robert got his driver’s license renewed. We came back home and I worked on my quilt project for a bit (see photo below) then fixed us some lunch. We both read for a bit after lunch. It’s been a nice quiet day.

Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them. Don’t pass up the opportunity to say those three all-important words, “I love you.” Blessings to all.

      I have no clue what they will do with the extra bit of stomach that’s being bypassed. I do so hpe this whole thing gets cleared up with tomorrow’s surgery. The man has been to H— and back and I truly feel for him and his family.
