LOVE this saga...

This is the best series that I have read in awhile! I bought the first book last week so I could have something to read in the hospital. I got so caught up that I went to Barnes and Noble the next morning and bought the other 3 books. I just finished them yesterday! They are awesome. I highly recommend them. If you want to borrow them, just let me know. The author is Stephanie Meyer. The movie, Twilight, is coming out in November and is based on the first book. I can't wait to see it!

Thank you..

Thank you all so much for the thoughts and prayers for my dad. The phone calls and emails mean so much to all of us.
For those of you who do not know, He came through surgery fine. It took alot longer than they expected but he did great. He was in the recovery room for longer than expected as well. He finally got into a room late Wed. night. He was in severe pain. Thursday was a bit better but still in alot of pain. He was able to come home Friday afternoon. He is still in pain but not as severe as before. He has not been able to lay down since he has been home. He stays in the recliner. Mom says he might sleep 2 hours at a time, if that much. He is still wearing a catheter so that is causing pain. He has a doctors appointment on Monday to find out when he can get that taken out and also to find out of they got everything. So we still need some prayers!

We survived Hurricane Gustav last week. We were so worried that the doctors were going to have to rescedule the surgery but thankfully they did not! Another answered prayer!

On the day that Gustav hit, we celebrated Josh's 30th birthday! It was not much of a celebration seeing as how we were helping friends whose house was flooded during the storm. I will make it up to him soon!

Well that is all for now. Not very many pictures to share today but here are a few! Oh and that is how I look after spending 14 hours at the hospital! Aren't I pretty??? :0)
