Will hiding from my camera right before surgery. He was very brave and did not even want the pre-anesthesia relaxation medicine. According to the surgeon, he wooed the nurses and pretty female anesthesiologist with his dashing good looks and charming personality.


The hospital looked more like a beautiful hotel than a hospital.
They have definitely renovated since his first surgery there. And although Dave and I were both nervous wrecks, we ate a delicious lunch (southwest chicken chipoltle panninis) while Will was in surgery. We like to eat (and clean) when we are nervous.

Will was very funny coming out of anesthesia. He thought Dave's arms looked like thick elephant legs and toes. Then he said, "Maybe I am just hallucinimating." That is our new word around here....halluciminating:)

He is home and he is doing well. He is still a bit loopy and dizzy. And I think he is relishing all of our attention but getting bored too. Thank you SO much for all of the prayer and good wishes. They really helped.


And here is a little photo of Miss Katie Ru. I finally (with a TON of help from my brilliant hubby) figured out how to install some actions on my PSE6 Mac. I am not so good at that stuff. This is my good friend Shana's action Florabella Cosmopolitan. I am just beginning to play around with actions but it is fun!

Here is the same photo with Sweet Vintage Haze.


  1. Glad to hear Will is recovering, that's wonderful.

    And I love that photo of Kate with either actions - they're both awesome. She is gorgeous!


  2. so glad all is well and you have your boy home.

    Love, love, love, the pictures of Kate!

    Have I ever told you that we have a Kate too?


  3. I'm so glad all went well with Will. I laughed at his "hallucimation".

    I love the Kate pictures. She's just too cute! Did you know that this time last year we were in China?! Hard to believe.
