"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

~Surgery Update~

It has been a week since Ward had his surgery and he is doing so well. The day of the surgery he was suppose to check in at 11 with the surgery at 1, but the night before the hospital called and moved him to check in at 1 and surgery at 3:15pm. He was given the instruction to fast starting at midnight the night before. After we checked in we hung out in his room visiting, laughing and watching some TV. The anesthesiologist came and talked with him about 3, shortly after she left the Dr. came to check on Ward as well and wrote his initials on the leg of the surgery. About 4 off he went to surgery. It was a strange feeling having him taken away from us. I am the one to take care of him it is hard to turn that responsibility to someone else. The girls and I waited for the surgery to be over to talk with the Doctor before we went and got his prescriptions filled. The surgery took about 45 minutes. The Doctor said it went well, but it was a mess in there. He will be able to walk as soon as he is out of recovery. After he got back into his room he ate a few crackers, drank some juice and wanted to walk. They had a walker near by just in case he lost his balance but he did amazing!!! He stood right up and off he went. He walked all the way around the surgery floor and wanted to get dressed and head home. He has continued to do great. He stayed home from work on Friday and was able to come with me to take the girls to school, he attend Raychel's school awards assembly, took me to lunch and enjoyed his time off. It was nice having him around for the weekend and plus the two days. He was back to work on Monday, just like I knew he would.

as well and wrote his initial on the leg of the surgery.
