End of Summer 2018

Yesterday was Kortney's 40 birthday!!! I can't believe it!!! of course , she was working both jobs so we didn't celebrate ..  We did see her for a minute in-between jobs.  Connor has started 6th Grade and Sierra started 10th grade at a new High School, West Jordan, the one her mom is working and she is on the Soft Ball team There.

They are my only grandkids in school right now.  Adyson will be taking college courses and Tatum with start preschool in Sept.

Mo is still getting stronger and stronger and will graduate from cardiac rehab this week.  YEA!!!!

Abbi had their 4th baby, Bennet   Now she has twins , Calvin, Matthew, age 19 months and Anna Rose age 5.  The pictures of the New Baby is down the blog a bit.  These kids are each a miracle and Abbi  and Chad count their blessings even though their lives are really busy right now.

    Cute Baby Bennett Chad Cox.  This baby was a total surprise and was conceived all a natural.

Lola is getting weaker and weaker and it breaks my heart to watch her suffer.  She is pretty much home bound and we try and get down as often as possible.  As I look back it has been a fun summer even though Morris was tied down to Doctor Appointments and Rehab.  We did manage to do some fun things.

We are so grateful for his health and recovery and look at life with a whole new perspective and don't take anything for granted as we go forward loving every minute we have with family and friends.

 These aren't in order but they all happened this Summer.   Adyson, Sierra and Connor and I got to go to Boondock's cause Connor had free tickets from his Diabetic connections.  Anyway we sure had fun on a Sat. from  9-12  It happened to be perfect temperature and we had a great day.  The only good thing about his Type 1 diabetes.
 These two Cuties are two peas in a pod.  Love them so much.!!!
 This cutie Tatum is such a joy in our lives.  Always keeping us on our at boondocks.
 She got her face painted at a summer fun time her family went to.  She was so distraught cause her mom didn't have a mirror so she could see it.  and was very upset it washed away in the bath.
 We took a brief trip to St. George when Roger and Chris and Family were down there so we hooked up.
 This Beautiful young woman, Graduated from High School Early in January and Walked with her class in June. 2018  She is so smart and so motivated.  It will be fun to watch her life unfold.

The Recovery Continues one Month to the day of Surgery

June 3rd 2018

Morris ended up being in the hospital nearly 2 wks. minus one day.  The main thing we were waiting for was his Blood thinner meds to stabilize.  They couldn't take out the Heparin IV until his INR readings were stable to go from IV blood thinners to Pill form.

He does not sleep in the hospital an another two weeks was making him crazy from lack of sleep.  Since he has been home, he has had home health care again and will start out patient Cardiac Rehab this week, June 6th.  It has been beautiful weather and we even ran down to St. George again for a minute.  I got lots of cleaning done down there and it happened to be not too hot, in fact really nice down there.  It was hailing and raining up here.   We went down on Thurs. before Memorial Day Monday and came home tues.  It was a nice break and got our car registered and some other things done like picking up his BiPAP cord he left there.

He is still very weak and tired and has some slow brain moments but is making really good progress. We feel so blessed to be at this point and look back wondering how we did it but know it was through the Grace of God and all the angels here and on the other side who have sustained us.

We even went to See "Music Man "with the Dennis and Joanne Smith's.  It was kind of them to invite us.   It was almost too long for Morris but he was a trooper.  We especially liked it cause when We were in Hight School, we perfomed it and it brought back so many fun memories.  Morris played in the orchestra and I helped as a Tigerette. " Good night my someone Goodnight my love"

Adyson graduated from High School, rather Walked with her class, she has been out of HighSchool since January. This made everything official and it was a good day.  Ill post those pictures next time.
 a few days after surgery and smiling with a ton of tubes going everywhere.  Later when he was ready to go home and making the rounds walking.  He said, " Does this IV Pole make my Butt Look BIG"
HAHAHA... Still has his sense of humor.   The day he had to be shocked out of A Fib was quite the experience.  They call it Cardio Conversion but it looks just like the Movies with the paddles being placed, saying Clear!! then wham!!! it was scary to say the least.
