Mi Vida Loca

Ok, so I know that I owe an explaination as to why I haven't posted in a while. Here we go.
They sent me to an endocrinologist to find out what is going on with my "lazy thyroid", come to find out it's not lazy it's almost dead...humm...wish Lee Pace would come and bring it back to life (Pushing Daisies joke). So they bumped up my meds a whole lot and so far I am feeling much better. Still need some work but much better.
In other news and possibly the most stressful, my daddy was having some chest pains last week and went to the doctor. He can't have stress tests because it literally almost kills him, so they were supposed to order a heart cath. He gets to the hospital where he was supposed to have his heart cath and what did they order? That's right, a stress test, so he didnt' have it done. Flash Forward to the next day and he gets a heart cath. Come to find out he has a 70% blockage in the back of his heart so they can't get to it any other way but surgery. You guessed it...Bypass surgery number 3!!! ON HALLOWEEN!!! So, I drive 6 hours with Noah on Thursday night and got to Tyler around 11 or so, went to bed around 1 got up at 4:45 to get ready to got to the hospital. He went into surgery at 7 and everything went really well and what was supposed to be a single bypass turned into a triple bypass. I had to leave before he got out of surgery, but they were wiring him back together when I left so I felt pretty good about leaving. Anyhow, he is doing well with the possibility of going home tomorrow.
Anyways, I will write about our super awesome tubular time in Dallas pretty soon, I just wanted to let everyone know what was going on.
