So I guess I will start back on the 21st of November, we went down to St. Joe's Hospital in Phx for Scott to be cardioverted again. We had to be at the hospital at 5:00am so we went down the night before and stayed in a hotel close to the hospital. They did the procedure about 8:00am which only took about 20 minutes, but he had to stay for several hours afterward to be monitored. This time it worked!! His heart converted back to it's normal rhythm. We know our prayers and the prayers of everyone else have been answered. He has to follow up with the Dr in a few weeks to make sure it is staying in normal rhythm, but for now we are so very happy. Scott is feeling much better, he will continue to be on the medications for about 6 months. If after that time everything is the same, he will slowly be taken off the meds. Yeah!! It feels so good to not have this to worry about (as much) any more. Thank you everyone for your prayers in Scott's behalf.
The next event in our lives, which is always a huge event in our family, was thanksgiving. We had it here in our home, and we love to have people in our home to party and have fun! There were a lot of us here, but that makes it all the more fun. Lenn and Leisha's family were all here, then Danna (my sister) and her youngest son Lance, and my parents all came. We had lots of good food and enjoyed each others company. I don't think we ever got to bed before 3:30 every morning, we paid the price the next day. It was so crazy we had wall to wall people, the little kids had to sleep out in the hall way, and Sawyer my niece even slept in my linen closet, I think she enjoyed it though!
This is in my upstairs hallway and only 1/2 of the kids!
All the guys spent the whole weekend playing Rock Band. They did let us Mom's in on the fun one night, and I do have to say we were good!! I could get addicted to that game if I had time. The little ones even played for several hours, I was so surprised at how well they did, I couldn't believe they could even do it, as I had a hard time figuring it all out. But kids these days blow me away at the many things they can do, they are so smart!! Staying up to play cards all night and singing Christmas songs from our childhood, and watching funny video's on "You tube"was so much fun, everyone even volunteered to help us get out our December billing which was so nice, I wish we had all of that help every month. We got it done in about 30 min which usually takes Scott and I about 4 to 5 hours when we do it alone. (Thanks again everyone). I love Thanksgiving and Christmas, enjoying the time we get to spend with our extended family is something that I look forward to every year. We love our family and feel so blessed to have their love and support and get along with each and every one of them. I don't think there is one person in either of our families that we don't truly love to be around and enjoy spending time with. I have the best in-laws (mom and dad, brothers and sisters) and parents brother and sisters in the world, and feel so blessed to be a part of these 2 families.
Scott on the drums, we could hardly get him to let anyone else have a turn!
