Sniff Sniff...

Momma and Daddy go back to work FOREVER tomorrow, pals!!!  *sniff*  I don't like this time of year.  I love having Momma and Daddy home with me.  *sniff*  Don't leave me Momma!!!!  *sniff*

In other news, Pap Pap is still in the hospital.  He was supposed to come home today, but his heart still isn't working all the way yet, so they want to put this vest thing on him that will make his heart work if it stops.  It's called a fibrillation something something something...(sorry, pups, Momma's not so good with the medical stuff BOL!)  Anyhow, eventually they'll put one under his skin, but since he just had major surgery they can't do it yet.  So they have to wait until tomorrow to get the vest thing, and maybe THEN he can come home!

And if all this news wasn't bad enough, Momma got out the VACUUM yesterday!  And then, it wasn't working right, so she had to use the hose thing to suck up stuff, and it was on FOREVER.  AND EVER.

I am not having a very good weekend, pals.

Tee Hee!

Wonderful news, pals!  Momma went to see Pap Pap in the hospital today, and she said he looks really really good, considering he just had his heart all fixed up!  Pap Pap said he's really sore (well...that's not how he put it, but Momma says this is a family friendly blog, so we'll keep it G rated BOL) and that it hurts to talk and breathe, but he looked really good and he was sitting up in a chair and everything!  For hours!  Hooray!

In other news, Momma knows most of you pups aren't on the Book of Faces.  But you may have heard about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  If you haven't, go Google it.  Anyhow, Momma was nominated to do it by one of her human pals, so she did it.  Here's the video:

Momma then chose to donate monies to the ALS place (ALS Website).  She didn't know NOTHING about ALS before this all started.  She nominates any human here who wants to do it, even if you can't donate paper monies, and post it on your blog to spread the word!

For those of you who don't think the challenge is doing any good, read this! Ice Bucket Donations Surpass $10 Million to The ALS Association

Hooray!

Here's a note from Momma about Pap Pap, pals!

"Dad's surgery was a success! He had a triple bypass, one valve replaced, a leaky valve repaired, and a hole in his heart closed. He will be in the cardiac ICU most likely until Wednesday, then he'll be moved to the cardiac floor. Thanks for everyone's prayers and well wishes. He's got a long recovery ahead of him, but the scary part is over!"

Whew! Thank goodness THAT'S over!!  I musta peeled Momma off the ceiling elebenty billion times last night!  Grammy even drank a BEER last night!  Grammy never ever EVER drinks ANY alcohol!!!

Something Happy!

It's been all doom and gloom over here, pals, cause of Pap Pap not feeling good.  His surgery is for sure on Monday, but we don't know what time yet.  Momma's been to the hospital a whole bunch this week.  But today, Momma stayed home and me, her, and Daddy snuggled in the big bed!  Momma had her phone with her, so she took some pictures of me!

I like to lay on my back in between Momma and Daddy like I'm a people!  This way Daddy can rub my belly while I give Momma kisses!

*sigh* I love snuggle time!

Oh Boy...

Well, pals, it looks like Pap Pap is gonna be in the hopsital for a while.  He needs to have surgery on his heart to have a valve thingie replaced, and some sort of bypass thingie done two times.  And one of his valves might be crying, so that needs fixed, too.  He's gonna be cut up next week some time, so please keep him in your prayers.  Pap Pap needs to come home cause he gives the best ear rubs!

Momma here:  My dad is having open heart surgery on Monday or Tuesday to replace his aortic valve.  he's having a double (possible quadruple) bypass as well.  One of his valves might also be leaking, so they'll repair that as well.  Any prayers are deeply appreciated, and me and Fizz will keep you updated.

More Prayers Needed!

Pap Pap is back in the hospital, pals.  He went to today to get a test done to take pictures of his heart, and right before they were gonna give him the sleepy stuff, he went into heart and respiratory failure.  The doctor chose not to do the test and admitted him to the hospital.  Right now he's in the cardiac ICU until he's strong enough to have the test done, but the doctor thinks he has congestive heart failure.  He was awake and alert when Momma left the hospital and he said he felt better.  The doctor thinks he will need surgery to fix his heart.  Can you pups and kitties pray that Pap Pap will agree to the surgery?  He doesn't want to be cut open, but the doctor says if it's not fixed he'll die a lot sooner than he should, and he can go back to doing all his normal stuff, like hunting and fishing, once he's healed.  Thanks, pals.

Prayers Needed!

My Pap Pap is in the hospital, pals.  That would be Momma's Daddy.  We don't know what's wrong yet, but he was feeling pretty awful this morning and couldn't get out of bed.  If you pals don't mind, can you maybe say some POP for him?  Thanks pals.
