May he always know in his heart just how much he was loved by all!
You've earned your Angel Wings Pip. You will be missed. You will ALWAYS be remembered! May the cheeseburgers be plentiful at The Bridge.....
auf Wiedersehen Pip.
Grandpa Bob Update:
Grandpa Bob is home and doing really, really well with his recovery! (That is, as long as Mommy keeps on top of him and makes him do what he's supposed to do.)
While in the hospital, his heart started acting funny and throwing in some extra beats and then sometimes missing some beats. The Cardiology Doctor's came to see him and it was decided that he will see his own Cardiologist. That appointment is scheduled for Tuesday. They don't believe it was anything too serious just his heart adjusting itself after the surgery.
Grandpa Bob has been very depressed over the past month or so and Mommy thinks she understands why. Seeing as they cancelled his surgery twice since August, it has been weighing heavy on his mind. Mommy will take him to his primary Doctor on Wednesday. We hated to hear him talk about going to see Grandma in Heaven.
His surgery follow up is scheduled for November 13th. It was originally scheduled for the end of November but Mommy moved it up. We all want to get out of NY before the snow starts flying.
Visiting Nurse Services came by the other day to do a wound check. Since they went into the artery through his groin, Mommy didn't want to be looking at his "wee willy winkie" to check the incision. Best to leave that sight to the professionals!
The Nurse will be coming back sometime this week to check it again and to check his blood pressure, oxygen levels, etc. They will also be sticking around and doing some exercises with Grandpa Bob. Oh they know him well! The Nurse knew he would NEVER exercise on his own. Exercise for him is a very important part of the healing process you know. Mommy was not happy that Grandpa Bob gave this nice lady some attitude. That is why they will stay with him while he does what is required. We understand that they will come 3-4 times a week. Yea ~ We get to bark some more!!
We all know the way to Grandpa's Bob heart is through his stomach, so Daddy took him out to lunch yesterday. He parked a medium distance away from the entrance so Grandpa Bob had to do some walking. They had a really nice lunch together and both ate Chili. Toot~Toot! Mommy was happy to have a few hours break.
We are all being very attentive to Grandpa Bob especially Mommy. He has her on her toes around here. As soon as she sits down, he calls her from the other room and she's up again. He wears an emergency necklace that with the push of a button it dials her cell phone. Mommy said who ever invented this technology should be shot. Did you know it also works well in the middle of the night? Since he's not been sleeping too well, he calls Mommy in the middle of the night to see what she is doing. Great for her insomnia! He doesn't need nothing, but calls to say hello. (Yes, we still all live in the same house!) Mommy is exhausted.
We are praying that his recovery continues to go so well. We are hoping that as soon as he (hopefully) receives clearance from the Surgeon on November 13th, we'll be outta here. Mommy is starting to look at flights for getting Grandpa Bob to Florida. He will have to stay with the "Fish" while we make the long, long, long, drive (in our stinkin'
We want to get back to the warm weather, our friends, the beautiful sunsets, our one level home where we can run in circles forever and rides in our golf cart.
Mommy can't wait to get the heck out of Dodge (for many reasons)!
And since we've not been around much, these are for your viewing pleasure.....
Grandpa Bob said he is thankful for all the Blogville prayers that you sent him. Blogville ROCKS!!
