We had freshly baked cookies waiting for him, and he was escorted into the kitchen for his treat.
HE wasn't allowed to even take a drink without their help.What a beautiful scene this is to me. The most beautiful in the world. This says, all is right in the world. We are safe and happy in our home. All we need is each other. Gratitude and happiness is just radiating from each face, each look. Total contentment. Just yesterday Jacob said to me on the way home from school out of the blue, "I really love Dad." He told me about his frosh focus class that they have to take. It is just like meeting with a counselor and they discuss how to handle life basically. Yesterday they had been talking about what makes them angry and how to deal with it. Jacob couldn't even think of anything that makes him angry. Apparently other kids have problems with their parents and he was saying how he didn't have any problems with his dad. In fact, his dad is his best friend. HE fully realizes how incredibly blessed he is. It helps that he doesn't have a rebellious bone in his body. I pointed that out that if he were disobedient he might have some problems.
Rachel is definitely the most needy right now. It is ridiculous. I have posted on this before. ha ha. Look at her. These little women. What a lucky man.
All this week I have been not wanting Dave out of my sight. WE were trying to plan fall break and I really didn't want to go anywhere without him. I reluctantly let him go to work in the morning, he comes home for lunch, and we don't waste a second apart in the evening. I cried myself to sleep monday night praying that nothing would happen to Dave. I am so not ready to lose him. I don't want to live one day without him. I was supposed to leave this Thursday for Illinois to do photo shoots out there, but I wasn't wanting to go and miss being with Dave. I kept thinking is this just irrational anxiety, or what? Well, Last night I had all the girls at ballet, and as we drove up to the house there was an ambulance, fire truck and all the neighbors in front of our house. I didn't feel panicked, totally calm. Went in to the mayhem of people and Dave hooked up to a million things and the first thing he said was, "I didn't drive myself to the hospital!" I made him promise never to do that again. So, yes Dave had another heart attack. He had blockage in the same spot as last time where the stints were. They immediately got him in to clear it out, and he is doing well. He will probably have to be on plavax for the rest of his life, a blood thinner. So no contact sports and he needs to be more careful. Which is disappointing for him. I am just so grateful that we live only a few minutes from hospitals that do this all the time (we are in a huge retirement area). How thankful I am for the medical care that we have available to us. We are so so so blessed. and Heavenly Father answered my prayers. My heart is full. Now, off to the hospital. More updates later. And yes, we are all fine and doing great.
