April 4, 2013 Thursday Afternoon

Tony called me shortly after I posted to tell me his nephew, age 37, had a heart attach and was in the hospital having open heart surgery.  Wow, it really runs in their family.  Tony had the same five years ago.  Spent the night watching TV from the DVR.  Went to bed around 10 PM.  Here is a picture of what the back yard landscaping looks like with the lights all on and dark outside.

This morning I was up at 6:30 AM.  Fed the dogs, gave Vito his shot and got Tony off to work.  Spent the morning doing things around the house.  Painted the back door and filled the hot tub for the season.  Hopefully by tomorrow night it will be hot enough to go in it.  Went for a nice walk this afternoon along the river trails enjoying the 53 degree weather we are having today.  Feels so good outside.  The side yard is still too frozen to pound in the fence stakes.  A couple more days like this should unfreeze it.  Took a nap for an hour with the dogs on the bed this afternoon.  Tony should be home early tonight so we can go to the hospital to see his nephew.  Really going to see his sister for support more than see the nephew since we know first hand just what condition he is going to be in and visitors are the last thing he will want after cracking open his chest.  I figure we should sit down with the sister and let her know first hand just what she has in store since she will be taking care of him.  Since Tony had open heart surgery five years ago, and I had to take care of him for months off work, we have first hand knowledge of what they will be going through.  I don't envy either one of them.  Taking care of a person can be a hard job after open heart surgery.  So I figure tonight we will go to the hospital and then get a quick bite to eat somewhere around the hospital.
