Beverly’s Surgery

Sinus Surgery
Beverly has Endoscopic Sinus Surgery scheduled for tomorrow morning. I’ll tell you more after her surgery. Her right sinuses have been blocked for months. Finally they did a CT scan which showed the need for surgery. A few weeks ago she went to the ENT doctor who told her surgery was not an option. It was imperative to find out what was the cause. She’s a little nervous, because, believe it or not, Beverly has never been put to sleep with anesthesia.

1:36 PM Update: The hospital just called and we have to have Beverly at the hospital at 5:30 AM Tomorrow.

Yesterday’s Inauguration
I was reminded yesterday that our nation is not based on a group of people of the same race or skin color, or is it based on us having the same religion, instead it is based on the fact that we all believe in freedom.

This is a good video showing each of our forty-four presidents… from George Washington to Barack Obama.

How’s This for Nostalgia!

the future but to resign ourselves entirely to God’s Will.

Joke of the Day

While sports fishing off a Florida inland waterway, a tourist capsized his boat. He could swim, but his fear of alligators kept him clinging to the overturned craft. Spotting an old beachcomber standing on the shore, the tourist shouted, "are there any gators around here?!"

"Naw," the man hollered back, "Ain't been any for years!"

Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming toward the shore. As he got closer to shore he shouted to the guy again "What did you do to get rid of the gators?"

"We didn't do nothin'," the beachcomber said. "The sharks got 'em all."

oh I totally understand with Beverly; I've never had anesthesia either so I "dread" when I have to have surgery if ever

seems like it is a needed thing though; wishing her a smooth and quick recovery!
