I Can Feel that it's gonna be a Good Day...
Just a quick "pop in" to say hello and let you know a little something-something about what's going on in our side of the world.
Gary and I are heading off to the Brain Doctor (otherwise known as a nuerologist) for Gary to get an MRI done. Those of you who've been hanging around here for a while will remember that Gary has had three strokes over the last three years. His last--two mild ones--were back in February. He has a very pro-active neurologist who likes to keep checking in on him, which I am VERY grateful for. You know men, right? They'd just as soon go to a doctor as have a tooth pulled (well, that's not really a good comparison, since that involves another sort of doctor!) and Gary is no different. But he's been a very good patient since his last stroke and takes his Plavix everyday and goes to the doctor when he schedules his appointments.
So, we're hoping that everything will look just fine (and that Gary actually has a brain! LOL) and we're sure it will!
The fun news is that Gary and I are going to take the opportunity to do some Christmas shopping while we're out...and maybe get a little something to eat...and enjoy a day together! (We have absolutely NO time to go out on dates during the Fall. Between high school games on Friday night and then either Bama football games or softball tournaments on Saturday, it is just a busy time of year to go out.) I'm totally looking forward to having several hours all by myself with Gary.
So...just thinking about my sweetie today and how much I love and appreciate him for all he does. I was browsing around youtube and found one of "our" songs there and thought I'd share with you. This is totally an "old school" selection, and there are newer songs that make me think of our relationship, but this is one is particularly special to us. We danced to it at our wedding, and we both just love the "feel" of Van's voice and music. And, besides, it kinda makes feel like Autumn (even though the video has lots of summer images). It's just got that mood to it, for some reason.
And enjoy your day!
ADDED ON: Hey guys and gals!!! Thanks for all the sweet comments and well wishes for Gary. He got a great report from the neurologist! His brain looked normal (or as "normal" as his can be...LOL; yes, he loves me!) and the neurologist was pleased with how he was taking care of himself. I'm praying that if he keeps taking his blood thinner and aspirin everyday, we may never have to deal with another stroke again. That would be a very GOOD thing! Also...we got a good buggy-full of Christmas presents bought today...enjoyed a lunch at Zaxby's together where we had sparkling adult conversation (well, it actually was kinda silly conversation...but there was no 3-year-old there telling us about her superpowers!)...and enjoyed each other's company (I threatened him with his life if we didn't do it again very soon!). So... everything turned out well and contineus to be so! See ya again soon!
