Last Week

For today's walk, I am going to remember the day of my step-dad's surgery. I know it was only last Wednesday, but this was the most memorable thing striking me at the moment. Plus I wanted to participate today!

We had to get up super early for the surgery. We left my parents house around 5am. I haven't seen 5am since I was a nursing mom, and that was a long time ago! I remember walking downstairs to get coffee and telling Phil, "you better be glad that I love you so much, because I should sleeping!" We all had good spirits that morning and I had a surprise for Phil. He loves The Beatles. Love might not begin to describe his feelings towards them, but put it this way, he loves them in every sense of the word! After I got back from NY the first time, I saw this Beatles shirt that I knew I had to get and wear for Phil. So here we are...

But my Mom had a surprise for Phil. She got him a new Beatles t-shirt to wear on his surgery day. PS-I think I totally forgot to tell you all that the first time I went to NY, I got a little over 5 inches cut off my hair!

The surgery as you all know was a success. God answered ALL of our prayers and then some. Phil is scheduled to come home Friday, if all goes as planned in rehab. But still, a week ago someone was touching his brain, and now he is practically back to normal!

"Give thanks with a grateful heart, give thanks..."

Wonderful post! Loved the pictures and so cool that he got something so special for that day. I like your hair! It's so shiny :o)

So glad that all went well with the surgery and that Phil is nearly back to normal already. That is truly amazing.

The Beatles were so popular when I was a kid and teenager. I liked them way back when they sang songs like,..."I Wanna Hold Your Hand!"

I like your haircut,...it looks so shiny and healthy,...and thick.

Glad you joined in today for Wednesday's Walk.

Blessings!

Wow! I am loving your new blog look! So adorable! I love little birdies!

You are just the cutest thing ever! I love your hair cut! I have been having my Aunt cut my hair lately (she used to be a beautician and does a fabulous job) and I so need to get her to cut it again! My hair is looking pretty scary lately. LOL!

I'm so glad Phil is doing so well....testimony to the power of prayer!!

Kate...First of all, I just have to tell you I am loving the new look on this here blog! So cute! I don't know if I ever said thanks before for posting my buttons up, so please forgive me. THANKS SO MUCH! It really does me a lot to me!

I am so glad that everything turned out so well for Phil. God is so good!

I totally LOVE your new haircut! Is Eric nuts over it? I love having short hair but my Hubby hates it. Oh well, he's not the one who has to worry about styling it. What is it with guys and long hair anyway?!? :)

I remember seeing that he loved the Beatles but I didn't realize he LOVED the Beatles. :)

I didn't know you cut your hair. Looks great! I've been thinking about cutting mine. It's down to my mid back right now. I don't know if I can part with it or not. We'll see.

Love the new look!

I'm so glad to her that the surgery went well. Love the Beatles shirt, but probably not as much as Phil does.

Your blog looks cute. I like the colors.
