It's been a week of miracles around here. Russell's great Uncle Hugh has had an abdominal aneurysm for several years. Recently, it has grown larger and was becoming dangerous. Doctors had explained to him that when it blew, he would die. Just like that. There is a procedure that can be done through the groin to repair the aneurysm, but his was considered too large to use that procedure. However, because of some recent discoveries (o.k. I'm not sure what they are), he had surgery Wednesday and went home Friday! We are giving the glory to God!
Uncle Hugh spent one night in ICU, just because that's what you do with that surgery, moved to step down Thursday and home Friday. Did I mention he's 91? Amazing grace!
Tonight I went by to see him and he answered the door and was up and walking around.
Tonight was also the first time in a long time that I wished for a better camera than my little point and shoot. Leaving Uncle Hugh's house, you drive right by the bay. There was a fingernail, also called crescent, moon tonight and it was huge, yellow and hanging low over the horizon. I'm talking about a gorgeous sight. I knew I might as well not try to get a picture because it wouldn't do that moon justice!
It was something like this image, except facing the other direction and the lights across the bay dancing down below. Breathtaking.
In other news of great interest, Russell left today driving the motorhome to Texas to have it repaired. They're repairing the same thing they repaired last year. Iwould have gone, but there's just too much going on this week and sitting in a waiting room ALLLLL day with two dogs just isn't that appealing. Once you've done it, you really are able to skip that experience the second time! He should get to Texas tomorrow, have the motorhome worked on Monday and hopefully start home Tuesday.
